Very Cool Photo Re-sizing

Aug 30, 2007 Michael Wurzer

Athol’s Bad MLS Photo of the Day series may find fewer candidates once this new photo re-sizing technique becomes popular.  To make a photo smaller, you used to have to either crop it or shrink it.  Cropping is bad because you likely will lose important content.  Shrinking is bad because everything gets really small.  Now, however, there is a new technique that dynamically eliminates less important parts of the image.  This is seriously cool and has very real applications for real estate photography.  Check out this demo and pay close attention to the image as it re-sizes.  This is amazing stuff.
