We©re looking for a web-based design tool implemented in Flash Action Script and similar to the one found at [url removed, login to view] We would like it designed such that we can change the look and feel by creating skins. We would like to have the following features:
Design area & palette
There should be a fairly large design area for visitors to use, and a palette featuring thumbnails of elements the visitor may draw from. There will be enough elements that we will need tabs in the palette for grouping and organizing. (Site administrators, not visitors, will do the grouping and organizing.) Visitors are not restricted to the number of times an element in the palette may be used in the design area, however elements are not allowed to overlap so they will be limited by space.
Visitors will be allowed to choose from a small selection of backgrounds onto which they can place their elements. When elements are placed in the design area, they will need to ©snap© into position, and specifically, place themselves side by side along a line on the background. Each background will have its own image and own snap points.
Elements will be purchased as separate parts or as an assembly. There will be an area that shows a current tally of costs based on the background and elements chosen, and pricing rules to be determined.
The visitor will have the option of purchasing their design, so we need a shopping cart. We©d like it customizable for up-sells, to be integrated with an SQL database, and to allow for additional charges such as shipping & handling fees, taxes, gift wrapping, etc.
Content management tool
We need a way for site administrators to:
· Add, remove, and group design palette elements, along with their thumbnails and full-size photographic images.
· Add and remove design area backgrounds.
· Update the costs for elements, backgrounds, shipping, taxes, etc.
The above details may be modified slightly as the project progresses.
Project budget is between $5,000 and $7,000.
