Adobe hires image resizing pioneer
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, Match.com 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.
