Chengdu, China (PRWEB) January 13, 2009
A magic function called 'Content-aware resizing' was implemented in the new released Turbo Photo v6.4, a powerful photograph software by Stepok Image Lab.
Content-aware resizing is useful for preparing photos which target different devices with different width-height ratios, varied from wide screen monitors (16:9) to cell phones with QVGA screen (4:3). In the traditional way, there are two choices to change the width-height ratio of a photo: by cropping or by image resizing. A cropping way will cut and lose the contents outside of the cropping box, while an image resizing operation may scale and distort the photo. Both ways can not achieve the job perfectly.
As a new way for ratio changing, content-ware resizing can avoid the above issues. The program will analyze the photo to find out and mark the 'important contents' area, and reduce the pixels to avoid it. After resizing, the 'important contents' will keep unchanged while the other parts are scaled. So content-aware resizing is a perfect way to archive your goals.
There is a sample to show how it works at http://www.stepok.net/eng/image/tpsamples/content_aware_resize.jpg.
The content-aware resizing function in Turbo Photo v6.4 also provides a way to manually define the important part.
