This will be a near clone of the lolcat buildr site at: http://kscakes.com/LolCats/
Similar layout (I will give feedback and you, as a good web designer will improve upon).
Same basic functionality:
1) Choose an image, upload image OR pic image from URL (sort of like the image upload tool at photobucket.com)
2) Add text to image: Similar solution, would like real-time view of text on image as the user types message (ajax solution?)
3) Save image and tag with image type and keywords
Visitors can browse images, search by keyword, subscribe to image rss feeds and other options found on the site to be cloned.
This is a fairly simple site and I think scripts for most of the features are already floating around. I would like someone who can design a good web2.0 look, make a simple interface as well as code the application. Should be able to write very efficient code so that image creation/browsing/etc does not bog down the server. Must be able to provide links to previous work. php+mysql and possibly ajax for the real-time image overlay.
