'll try to more easily explain the application i'm trying to come up with. It will help if you visit my site first then i think you'll completely understand what i want.

I'm a photographer and i have a small gallery down here in german village (Columbus, Ohio). if you visit one of my main photo pages... for example... [url removed, login to view] -- look below the photo and see the Spry panel set. The photos are available in 5 different sizes. and two different frame profiles.
Each frame profile you see around the photo is loaded into a div, and then the photo on each panel is loaded into a div on top of the frame profile graphic. --- i want to be able to do the same type of thing in the flash application, just replacing loading into a div -- loading into a MC.
then of course i need everything to be to scale. -- i know that is essentially up to me to create the graphics correctly.
what i want to be able to do, is have a blank "wall" user selectable "paint color".
then, via dropdown, select the size of the photo, --- when that size is selected, a blank frame MovieClip is called up with that size frame as a background, then on top of that layer, load the photo desired. .. I've attached a PDF of the workflow i envision. its pretty easy for me to see in my head, but to actually type it out, i feel like i'm making it much harder than it needs to be.
then, what is the tough part for me... i want people to be able to load as many pieces to the "wall" as they desire. again, all to scale.
then i want them to be able to drag them around on the "wall" in any arrangement they'd like. (it would be great if they could snap-to align themselves. either to the top edge of one another, or to vertical center or horizontal center.. but that may be too difficult to try.)
I've attached a PDF of a design summary, with a graphic of kind of what i'm looking for. If you have any questions at all please feel free to drop a line... Otherwise, send along a quote and we'll take if from there.
and in the spirit of open communication, you are one of three candidates to be reviewing this brief.
