Content-Aware Image Resizing

'Seam Carving for Content-Aware Image Resizing' is the name of the paper presented by two Israeli professors, Shai Avidan and Ariel Shamir, at the SIGGRAPH 2007 conference in San Diego (paper here)

The algorithm for resizing figures out which parts of an image are less significant which makes it possible to change the aspect ratio of an image without making the content look skewed or stretched out.Let's wait and watch some real applications being made available which use this algorithm. I would love that.
