Photoshop's new Content-Aware Scaling feature

Adobe Photoshop has a new functionality called Content-Aware Scaling.

Here's how Adobe describes it:
Use the revolutionary Content-Aware Scaling feature to automatically recompose an image as you resize it, smartly preserving vital areas as the image adapts to the new dimensions. Get the perfect image in one step without time-intensive cropping and retouching.
And, based on this video, it looks great:

But, it has other applications, too...

  1. I think you have the content aware scaling confused with the content aware filling. scaling was introduced in CS4, this new feature is being introduced in CS5. It's not really so revolutionary, apparently there is a GIMP plugin that does the same thing - and it's been available for free for a couple of years. But it's still awesome. I thought the content aware scaling introduced in CS4 was a great feature, but this just tops it.

  2. I'd probably know that if I had Photoshop. I don't. Or if I liked using GIMP. I don't.

    Still, both functionalities are pretty cool

  3. I hate GIMP too. and Photoshop is ridiculously expensive. The only way I managed to get it was because I got a student discount
