Content-aware image resizing

An anonymous reader writes "At the SIGGRAPH 2007 conference in San Diego two Israeli professors, Shai Avidan and Ariel Shamir, have demonstrated a new method to shrink images. The method called 'Seam Carving for Content-Aware Image Resizing' figures out which parts of an image are less significant. This makes it possible to change the aspect-ratio of an image without making the content look skewed or stretched out. Watch the demonstration. A pdf paper can be found here."

That's incredible! Especially the part near the end where they erased people from the images...unbelievable.
