Re: Content Aware Image Resizing.

Very important link. Looks like they finally ported the compiled executables (found the update from the GIMP Registry) for the GIMP.

Hey! I may make more use out of it this way than by using it to resize. (More fun anyway.)

Re: Content Aware Image Resizing.

It has some fun results that is for sure. With careful protect and delete I have had some success (just for test) removing text added to images but keeping other content.

The example
i tried was a woman running on a beach, the text was running along the bottom but about 25 px inset from the bottom edge. I selected the text as delete area and the woman as protect and added about 80-85% scale, she was maintained along with the reflection in the water (wet sand) and the text was removed.

Has promise that is for sure. I emailed the addy and suggested a soft edge brush if possible to help blend the scaling.

Re: Content Aware Image Resizing.

Just want to keep this thread updated. Currently, I now use a GIMP plugin to do these (like the control). Still, I have to share with you all a link that I received from Photojojo (newsletter that I subscribe to). It's an online only solution to this; realtime animation is cool too.

Re: Content Aware Image Resizing.

Looks like I'm going to beat you again Creeduk. Another Open Source project that I believe will have lots of potential in the near future. Their system actually implements realtime seam carving. Very cool stuff. Not yet works for Windows, but they are working at it.

Re: Content Aware Image Resizing.

Nice work IK.

I tested the Photoshop plug and it has no interface but allows protection via selection and it works quickly on both up and down size.

I also found last week that the liquid resize tool added the ability to increase size. It works well but the dynamic portion has slowed down and can produce errors (best to just use the resize) and the brush seems slow. I think they will work out the kinks. I should check again see if they have an update.

It has now been offered as a tool for the flickR crowd in the form of Fotoflexer

Re: Content Aware Image Resizing.

One more I forgot to add, a resize application that offers standard resize options as well so you get a hybrid resize package. Resizor

It is slow right now and only retargets down not up, but I like the concept of an all in one scaling package.

Re: Content Aware Image Resizing.

I accidentally found out that my ol Image hosting site (ImageShack) is now offering a Liquid Rescale capability. Everybody's getting on the bandwagon now. lol

After you upload your image, you can Liquid Rescale before committing.
