In nyc we are finally moving to mir, and design-wise are planning to
replace the traditional center-column thumbnails with 1 or 2 large images.
For reasons similar to the motivation for auto-generation of thumbnails,
it'd be great to have a crude interactive image editor, so that imc
editors without an indepth tech skillset could crop and resize images
online. That is, crop a center-column image from a larger photo from the
newswire, or uploaded from their desktop, etc. (i.e., to fit the html
template, say at 200x300px).
Here's a crude example from the ImageMagick site (see PerlMagick):
...and a more advanced php demo here:
...this one works nicely, but it's p2p -- just linking it cause I like it
(great for remote napkin sketches):
I'm thinking we'd only need crop and resize, but it would be nice to have
a standalone online widget that we could share elsewhere.
If anyone has any thoughts or background on this, would love to hear from
you. In the meantime I will try to organize some java folks here locally
to attempt build it (over the next few months).
