Adobe hires image resizing pioneer

There's a really cool video that's been making the rounds on the interwebs for the past week or so. It shows a next generation image resizing method that lets you stretch or shrink a picture without greatly altering its composition.

One of the guys behind this technology is Shai Avidan, a former staff member of the Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories. Adobe's John Nack writes that the company has hired Avidan, which we hope means we'll be seeing this sort of image resizing in Photoshop and other consumer applications soon.

We're pretty certain that if Adobe hadn't snatched up Avidan, would have done so. Just imagine the potential for tweaking profile pictures in personal ads. A little too short, or a little too round in the belly? Go ahead and make yourself thinner and taller with just a click of the mouse.
