Arachne Image Resizer

Arachne is program that implements Avidan and Shamir's seam carving technique for content-aware image resizing. It allows realtime, fluid image resizing using this fascinating technique. Seam carving works by removing the "boring bits" from an image, so it can change the aspect ratio of many images without changing the shape of the objects inside.
