Crazy Image Morphing

This video of a SIGGRAPH07 demo is amazing – I really wasn’t sure when I started watching it if I was understanding what was going on. It is showing a tool that, instead of having you resize an image by cropping or scaling find the least important portions of the image to remove or expand, even if they are not in simple vertical or horizontal bands. It seems be be based on finding low-energy paths through the image, where the definition of energy can be tweaked to get good results for the image in question. But you really need to watch the video to see how cool this is. [via Glark]
