One of the things I love about MATLAB is hearing about an interesting algorithm and being able to put it together quickly to understand how it works, if only to satiate my curiosity. What I really love is when someone on the File Exchange has already done the coding of said algorithm and I can just start my exploration there.
That happened this week when Aslak pointed to a video that does some really cool content aware image resizing:
This algorithm will make an image like this:
Look like this:
This would be good for web pages that change width as a reader resizes the window and other applications.
