Default "Seam Carving": Image resizing & modification

Not exactly a photoshop/staged video in itself, but considering how efficient this program looks at manipulating the content of photos and removing people and subjects, I foresee an increase in highly realistic photoshops coming through the fauxtography subforum:

I wonder what applications it'll end up having as the race for president heats up...

For Graphics People:
This is available as the Liquid Rescale plugin for GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program). I've played with it a little and it is pretty cool indeed.
Alternatively, XFile2 says it will do the same thing for most Windows based graphics apps (Pshop) but it's $100 and I haven't tried it yet.
