I need a relatively simple project that is going to require a bit of innovation by whomever I hire. Basically, I want to create a website that will make it easy for people to capture screen shots and share them with people. To capture a screen shot, people generally have to click the Print Screen button on the keyboard, then paste the file into photoshop or paint shop, the save it, then upload it to photobucket. I would like to create a site where people can click Print Screen, come to my site and click a button that will PASTE the screen shot onto my site, and either give them the option of saving it as it is, at which point they will be taken to a page that has options for linking to it, embedding it, etc. (to see what this page is supposed to look like, please go to [url removed, login to view], upload a picture, and you will see what it is supposed to look like.
The user will also have the option to add some Paintshop type stuff to the image. So after the user clicks the button to paste what is on his Print Screen (Step 1), it will say "Save" or "Edit (Paint)" (Step 2). If they click Edit, it will take them to a page that has the image, as well as a couple tools located in Paint Shop. It will allow them to use a paint brush to draw (with the option of three different sizes... small, medium and large), a crop tool, so they can select a certain portion of the screen to crop, and a type tool, so they can type text directly on the image (and they will be able to specify the font size). For the typing and paint, the user will also be able to specify the color they would like, out of like 16 primary colors. After they are finished, they can click save, which will bring them to the same page I mentioned a bit ago on image shack.
In addition to the screen shots, I would also like for the user to be able upload any type of image file, and give them the option to just host it by clicking Save or to edit it just as they could with the screen shot.
Basically, the most important technology of this is to have the system set up so people can paste their screenshot onto the server and it gets saved by my server. The paint functions are simple, as they have been done many times all over the web. I would like to have this finished within 10 days, but I am flexible. Looking forward to hearing from you...
