Image Resizing: Third Party Online Working Demo

The image carving/resizing video we posted last week has sparked quite a conversation. Most people have been very positive, although there has already been at least one response saying its a bad thing for the web (which seems a little dramatic to me).

Patrick Swieskowski emailed us this afternoon to say he’s created an online demo of the idea, based on using the seams of images to make the alterations. It shows how well this works in action, and users can upload their own images and manipulate them.

For now images can only be shrunk. Pat says he’s working on a way to increase the size of images by seam insertion, too.
