Simple Online Image Editor

What I need done:

I need a fairly basic online tool to allow my users to resize and crop an image... The process is as follows...

1) The user uploads an image, in JPG, GIF or PNG

2) The image is converted and a master copy is stored as a PNG

3) If the image meets the dimension requirements then no further action is taken

4) If the image does not meet the dimension requirements then the Online Image Editor (OIE from here) is opened

5) The user manually corrects the image using the OIE

6) Once the image is the correct size the master image is overwritten by the new image

Steps 1 - 3 are already in my existing code... Done in HTML / PHP...

Step 4 needs to be called from my existing code... I may need some help with this...

Step 5 is what I need programmed...

Step 6 either needs to be done by the OIE or it sends the image information back to the existing code which then handles the saving...

Images may be larger than the screen size, so the ability to work on them zoomed out is required...

Parameters I believe need to be passed to the OIE:

- location and filename of master image

- minimum and maximum dimensions of the final image (the user must meet these before saving is possible)

- destination (ie location and filename) of the resized image (in case I change my mind about overwriting)

- Maybe some sort of user authentication to prevent abuse (user database is handled by Joomla / Community Builder)

Minimum feature set of OIE:

- Resize

- Crop

- Undo

- Save

- Zoom (ie fit to screen, 50%, 100%, 200% etc)

- Ability for admin to set minimum / maximum size of final image

- Image to be loaded and saved to URL or from POST data

Desirable features, but not required:

- Rotate

- Exposure, Contrast, Saturation, Hue and Sharpness adjustments

- Special effect such as greyscale, poterize, sepia, bump or any other effects that may be easy to implement

Similar projects that I have looked at:

- The snipshot editor ([url removed, login to view]) is very close to what I need already... In fact it really only is missing the zoom capability, otherwise I would of used that... If I was able to get something virtually identical to this but with zoom, then I would be very happy... It is done in javascript I believe...

- NetImager ([url removed, login to view]) shows the use of the zoom feature I want very well... but it is done as a Java Applet and I would prefer not to do that...

- Picnik ([url removed, login to view]) is basically perfect the way it is... Though some features could actually be removed, or at least hidden... It is done in flash...

Software requirements:

- I would prefer that the OIE was coded in something that didn't require the user to download anything... So Java Apps would be out... Ajax, PHP, Javascript, Mootools would all be good... Flash is also suitable as most people already have the Flash plug-in...

Timeframe for delivery:

- Before Xmas would be nice

Further notes:

Please don't hesitate to conatct me should you require further information... This project is needed for an free / non-profit community of sci-fi / fantasy fans... As such budget constraints are always an issue as the site is entirely funded out of my own pocket... However the job needs to be done and the money will be found if the price is right...

Thanks in advance to anyone who responds...

Modification to project specification and clarification

After looking more closely at the various existing online image editors and the requirements for my site, I have decided tht I would the project to be done in Flash...

A clone of Picnik ( would be ideal... It has more features than I need, so some can be cut out... Especially the many methods of importing and saving the images... Picnik only lacks the ability to set minimum and maximum dimensions for the final image...

A much simpler flash based image editor I found recently would also do a nice job... FixPicture ( is in beta but larely seems to be working as I need it... Again some modification would be require to the import and export of images and to the min / max dimensions...

Can any future quote, or existing ones be modified, to suit these new specs... To re-iterate I am basically after a clone of either Picnik or FixPicture with some minor modifications...

Thanks everyone for your time...
