Liquid Scale allows to scale images horizontally or vertically without distorting the content. A Photo with too much background can be condensed to its main motif. It’s possible to mark image areas to remove or preserve them. No question: Anybody can now perform tricks with images.
Is your image too wide for the vacation blog? Do you need a square avatar photo? Does the beautiful landscape shot not fit into the frame? Using Liquid Scale you can easily adjust the correct size without distorting the image. Move two people closer to each other, remove unwanted third persons or create an impressing panorama.

Sophisticated distortion fx for mobile platform
Liquid Scale distorts your images so convincingly you’ll think it’s magic. (Photoshop users will recognize this as Content Aware Scaling for the iPhone.)
Liquid Scale adjusts the proportion of images by selectively distorting less important or detailed areas of an image more. Liquid Scale will identify which areas to distort automatically or allows you to manually identify image areas to favor during distortion.
Distort objects, draw objects closer together, eliminate objects close to the frame, change the proportion of an image frame, such as simulating panoramas, and more.
There’s a limit to the amount of distortion an image will support, but Liquid Scale will far exceed your expectations of what that limit is.
I like this app, however the claim of "no distortion" is not entirely true. In fact, in resizing anything, "no distortion" is impossible. After careful testing, usage, and observation of the applied areas of fracture, some area demonstrated undesireable distortions. Since the "fractures" are attracted to dark or plain areas, in one of my photos the "fractures" stretched her long hair and added what seemed to be an addition foot of long hair out to her sides. I couldn't stretch the photo without the apparent distortion. Nonetheless, the app is pretty good and well thought out. My only suggestion would be to add the ability to redirect the fracture points when they are visable. I do still find the app useful and do recommend it.
Very interesting results
This app will basically allow you to convert a landscape picture into a portrait one without distorting the ratios of objects in the shot. It works fast on my 3G and has never crashed. It's very easy to edit out certain elements in the shot and it's great for making a "fish eye" effect out of panoramic images. For example, you can take a picture of car interior (a panoramic shot with 3 portrait images) and you can then "compress" it into one landscape image that appears as if it was taken with a fish-eye lens. Very many uses for this app.
