We plan on releasing a new Webshop that lets the buyer choose from alot of high resolution pictures and designs that they can have printed on Wallpaper or canvas. Since the pictures have a certain size and aspect ratio we want the customer to be able to see the cropping (or not if the customer wants to squeese it together instead) and adjust accordingly before making the order.
We therefore need a plugin/tool for our Magento based store that lets the customer enter values in Centimeters. The visual representation for the image the customer has choosen to look at should then automatically adjust.
To show what we are looking for we looked around and found this site that has something in the alley of what we want:
[url removed, login to view]
Take a look at it and change the values plus see how you can adjust the cropping with the mouse ontop of the image itself after adjusting the hight and with.
When the customer makes a buy after deciding the crop (or not) and the size this information should follow the order so that we can use this for production later on. This means:
- crop information (how many centimeters from the left and from the bottom for instance).
We need to be sure that what we print and cut is the same cutout and size as the customer chose. And we need it to look nice and representative for the customers when they browse trough our items.
If you also take a look on the exacmple pictures below the one for editing on the mentioned website you can see that they use some sort of script that takes the choosen picture and renders it into several pre made interior pictures. This is also something we would very much like to have. If you could also illustrate if you can do this also and at what price we could either include it in this or make a new project for that one.
We would prefere to work with someone that has experience with these sorts of things and especially Magento. We plan on using this for a 1.5 installation, but keep in mind also that it should be possible to make it work for later editions and should avoid changing source code. It should also be possible to edit the frontend of it so that it looks integrated into the webshops design and changes in the future.
- measurements based on the adjustments the customer does must be implemented into the values saved in the sales order
- the values the customer chooses should also be the base value for the price. This should be based on a set value for square meters like the shop i mentioned in my example above.
Basicly we want the same thing as the other shop but with a look and feel that integrates it into Magento. Also it should be easy to reconfigure in the future.
