SEAMonster: Intelligent Image Resizing Tool
SEAMonster is the open-source .NET-based implementation of seam carving. Seam carving is an image resizing algorithm developed by Shai Avidan and Ariel Shamir. What that algorithm does is that it changes the dimension of image by intelligently removing pixels from (or adding pixels to) the image. If you are very interested in this algorithm, you may read it here or download this pdf file (20 MB).
You can watch the power of SEAMonster tool or how Seam Carving algorithm in the video below.

I noticed that tool since Mike Swanson, technical evangelist at Microsoft, wrote about this in his blog. (SEAMonster: A .NET-Based Seam Carving Implementation). I will write about how to use this tool in next article.
