Content Aware Image Resizing
SiGGRAPH came up with this amazing technology,content aware resizing, also known as Retargetting.The algorithm resizes images non-uniformly and, well, somewhat magically. This alters the dimensions of an image not by scaling or cropping, but rather by intelligently removing pixels from (or adding pixels to) the image that carry little importance.The algorithm is called Seam Carving.
You can find an implementation of this [Content aware scaling] in the latest Photoshop CS4
