I would like to sponsor a new open source (GPL) linux project - gkiosk. It should be a Gnome photo kiosk program, smth. like this: [url removed, login to view] - this program could be used as a start point.
things to add:
1) basic image edit functions, like (rotate, zoom, crop, move, redeyes removal, color adjusting,black & white, sepia, brightness and contrast etc. - all the standard stuff that can be taken from any open source photo manager like f-spot or any other).
2) adding custom templates/text to an image
3) calculation of the price of an order - for customer(to show before finishing the order) and for kiosk owner(for bookkeeping)
4) automatic ftp upload of the order to the ftp server of the printing lab.
optional (please mention whether you'll take it in you bids):
5) basic centralized bookkeeping via php/mysql script: once an order is made - it should be recorded in a central MySQL-DB. A simple php script should be created to allow the kiosks owner to see the records.
