For XF there is an add-on to upload an avatar. With it i can choose a part of a picture or resize it to fix. But it misses the way to choose a bigger part and resize after.
I have asked Maindigo to program it. He asked for some euros to do it. I was happy to hear it. I have posted this information to the german board xendach.de and offered to pay the half price. So maybe here a some people who wants to pay a small part also.
But for shure it is needed more - the same procedure should be available for pictures also.
I am not a programer, but i am able to download some js-librarys and use the examples.
So for you coders it should be another half day to offer this killer application that none of the boards i know have.
And if you have forgotten how a life is without photoshop, go and ask your parents or your grandparents.
My ones like to have a closed board only for our family living in a lot of cities with some hundreds of kilometers between. They love to see pictures from each other, but they do uploads rarely because they dont want to open a picture programm first. There a millions of people like this. Give them an easy toy and they will use it.
And i users like a board with this function more than a board without, webmasters will buy your product.
So please, forget the next weekend, and make me happy.
