The next big thing in “photoshopping”

I found a Youtube video via an Ubuntu developer’s blog that demonstrates “image retargeting” technology. Basically a hybrid between crop and scale that allows you to resize an image without distorting the main points, and without wholesale removal of columns/rows of pixels.

I would love for this to be in the next version of Gimp, but I’m not holding my breath. I didn’t hear or see any mention of a product for this tech yet, unfortunately.
