In the age of digital photography, post-processing (for better or for worse) has become a more common activity. Actions such as red-eye removal, adjusting levels and colors, and cropping are "part of the routine" for many users. When cropping a photograph, a variety of factors can come into play, including basic aesthetics. Tool-based support for a simple guideline such as the Rule of Thirds could provide many photo enthusiasts with a useful tool in their editing arsenal. This work motivates that idea, and explores it both within the context of mostly-manual "assisted" editing as well as the application of automated techniques.
