Based on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-SSu3tJ3ns , Content Aware image resizing is awesome.

Using the program at http://rsizr.com/ , I've manipulated a few pictures of my old friend James Duke.

This is the original picture







This is the picture again, expanded
this is the same picture one more time, zoomed.






Notice how the people and the splash (which I specifically selected in the program to avoid editing) stay the same, while the scenery, lake, trees, etc, scale. It's incredible!





Here is a picture I found on Wikipedia. It's just a moon and a castle with some mountains.



If I had simply resized the image in Fireworks or Photoshop, this is what it would look like.
But, using Smart Image Resizing, I have identified the moon and the castle as parts of the image i want to keep unedited.

You'll notice in the second image how there is an artifact to the left of the moon. This is from the way that the process works. I hope that they find a way to fix this bug, and I bet they will.



Again, here is the image as if it were stretched in a typical program


and here is the image after being stretched using retargeting




There are issues with this. It produces extreme artifacts, and seems to work best with picture that have a lot of jumbled vectors. Anything that has obvious, angled lines will pretty much be ruined.



If you try to delete a part of the picture, it makes that its first priority, even if there is a smarter way. For instance, I had, say, asked it to remove the moon and the castle, instead of saving them, it would have created a blotchy line from the upper-right to the lower-left.

Standalone app: http://rapidshare.com/files/84114494/liquid-resize-retarget-for-windows.zip

It's beta software, but works fine. But all the work got bought by onOne Software, so any development on it will continue (at a cost no doubt) under that flag.

it works for me in Firefox. I don't think they have a stand alone app yet, but I could be wrong.

I'm having trouble getting it to work inside of Firefox. I should be current on my version of Flash too, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Anyone else having problems with this in Firefox? I can get it to work in MSIE 7....but I'd rather not have to use MSIE unless I absolutely have to. Thanks!

Or I could stop being an idiot and realize that the video you linked to is the same one I just mentioned. Go me!

Same deal. I downloaded their test software. Same as the Flash based Rsizr, but faster since it's an actual app that can run on the computer. I also find it to be more accurate than Rsizr.

Archived magazine stories

Greetings,What are you all doing online with "old" magazine stories? Do you delete issues after so  many years? 5 years? 10? I'm torn between keeping all on for historical purposes or keeping just a few years online to simplify the site (ala Gerry McGovern.) Curious as to what you see best practices being.ThanksSara KisseberthBluffton Universitywww.bluffton.eduSee More
