Cool new image resizing technology - Seam Carving Rocks!
This amazing new image resizing technology allows you to resize a picture without decreasing the size of the contents. It does this by adding or removing "unimportant' slices running across a picture (e.g. portions of sky). There is a whitepaper on the technology here http://www.seamcarving.com/. There is an interactive flash demo that has to be seen to be believed! - http://swieskowski.net/carve/. In particular, try the horizontal carving. It looks natural and still has all the proportionally correct primary elements of the picture.
