About a week ago, I promised an update on the amazingly awesome-O resizing / seam carving tech news that’s been sprouting up since I first read about it and (re)blogged about it in August and also a few days later here. A comment to that same post linked to a website with a free downloadable app called Liquid Resize. I dl’d the program at home a fooled around with some wedding photos and was able to completely (as the man says) take people out of images and bring others together. Editing out the undesirables, if you will. It was so cool I called people and told them because I was so happy. Unfortunately, shortly thereafter, my new computer, Illyria, went through some hard times and lost all her everything. Not to worry, she’s back up and even more powerful than before.* About a week laters, another comment arrived at the same blog post (the post-ers probably just searched the mighty Goog for “seam carving” , “resize” , “dude!” , “sweet!” , etc. and then posted comments where’er they could, but I’ll take it) linking to a site with a real-time, Flash-based seam carving app called, are you ready? Rsizr. Here are some screen caps of an image I found earlier this morning, before and after I Rsizr’d it –

Yeah, it coulda been better, but I don’t care, I’m having fun. You can join in the seam carving fun at the Rsizr app site, or you can try out the downloadable app from Liquid Resize [win32].
