AS3 Content Aware Resizing or Image Seam Carving

Recently the “seam carving” technology to size images in a content aware way to preserve the original intention of the photo has been really taking off. In fact, Joa Ebert and Mario Klingemann, two flash geniuses have created and optimized [2] an AS3 algorithm for seam carving based on the paper about this new technology that was highlighted at 2007 SIGGRAPH.

    Hi,
    If you are looking for a software to try out seam carving, take a look at http://www.thegedanken.com/retarget

    The program that you can download there (for Windows and Linux, and free) is already highly optimized concerning speed, and apart from enlarging or decreasing image size you can also use masks to protect or delete certain parts of your image.

    Have fun,
    Irmgard

    There is also a gimp plug-in which is pretty good. I’ve done some tests with it and posted on my blog. Pretty cool.

    Check out rsizr.com for a Flash-based implementation of seam carving that lets you resize images, both in height and width simultaneously, in real time. (You can rescale and crop images too!)
