Digital Image Resizer Toy

The Digital Image Resizer Toy is an implementation of the algorithm for seam carving, sometimes referred to as "content aware image resizing," developed by Shai Avidan and Ariel Shamir. Seam carving seeks to avoid the drawbacks of other approaches to image resizing like cropping, where parts of the image are cut away in order to reduce the image size, and image scaling,which distorts the image contents if not done both horizontally and vertically by the same factor. It has been made famous via a video labelled "Advanced Image Resizing," which you should watch to find out what it does.
