  Description     : converts plain array images in multi-size representation

The LiquidRescale (lqr) library provides a C/C++ API for
performing non-uniform resizing of images by the seam-carving

The library takes images in plain array format as input
and converts them to a multi-size representation.

Following is a list of features:

  * Areas in the image can be marked for preservation or
  * Once the image has been fully processed, the scaling can
    be done in real-time. In fact, the information can be saved
    and read out later without any further processing
  * The resizing is done with a single function which
    automatically performs all the necessary operations; it
    can also work in successive steps without wasting
    computational time
  * Possibility to tune the carving operation by letting the
    seams be less connected, or more rigid, or both 
  * Can export and import the visibility map (the seams)
  * Other images can be attached and undergo the same carving
    process as the parent image 
  * The automatic feature detection algorithm can be tuned
    by selecting among different energy gradient functions
  * Reports progress through a customizable interface
  * A signalling system permits to cleanly handle errors

The library implements the algorithm described in the paper
"Seam Carving for Content-Aware Image Resizing"
by Shai Avidan and Ariel Shamir, which can be found at
