Seam Carving for Content-Aware Image Resizing

One of the jaw-dropping new features in Photoshop CS4 is a technique called content aware resizing. This was developed by a team of Israeli developers. In August 2007, Photoshop Product Manager, John Nack, wrote about this video in his blog, calling it “Holy crap”-worthy imaging technology.

In a post at that time, TechCrunch wrote I Want This In Photoshop Immediately! Adobe agreed, because nine days later, Nack announced one of the co-developers of this technology had joined Adobe. A year later, Photoshop CS4 will feature this technology as one of the big new features.
