http://www.downloadsquad.com – Filed under: Design, PhotoDeveloped in a joint effort by Israeli and Chinese universities, a new piece of technology that algorithmically makes photos more aesthetic might soon find its way to desktop products like iPhoto or Photoshop. The software works by applying 'standard' rules of 'good' photography, such as the rule of thirds. By dividing the image into nine segments, the software moves prominent objects -- trees, people, etc. -- onto the intersections or 'power points'. It apparently tweaks the position of 'prominent diagonal lines', and moves objects so that they're more uniformly arranged around the center of the image. All in all, it's the beginnings of a very neat tool that I'm sure many people would love to have in their photo editing suite! There's a brief video of the technology in action after the break.
