You have chosen to sponsor your bid up to a maximum amount of .
objective: develop a fully functional windows based software that is capable of automatically processing - both single files and batch - microsoft office files (.docx, .xlsx etc...) .pdf, and image files and outputting pdf files with certain predetermined formatting requirements (specific file sizes, page size, file name, image quality etc...).
In other words, user inputs one or more different files (.doc , .jpg and pdf for example) and the software would automatically generate as output one or more pdf files according to certain predetermined parameters (for example, maximum file size of 10 MB, if greater than 10MB, then software would divide files into more than one pdf file). I imagine that the most complex of these predetermined parameters would be that the software automatically recognizes a minimum image quality. in other words the final product must still be readable by humans.
the main focus of the project is functionality. I am aiming for a light, fast and easy to use software developed without using and copyrighted, off the shelf or GNU, CCommons source code. final product will be 100% original and innovative.
interaction during the project would be via Skype and email.
I will require the hired developers to sign a standard Confidentiality and Software Rights assignment agreement.
