I have a concept that I am dying to put together. However, it is crucial that along with a story, users are able to either upload a photo or link to an existing image. I have poured over these boards for hours trying to piece together a viable solution.
Bryan Hunsinger has provided us with a potential solution to the upload request.
I however, require more features then just this. The image needs to be cropped and adjusted to a thumbnail size. So all the images for the different story posts, end up being the same size in dimensions. As a designer, it drives me insane seeing the example above.
Here is an example of what my goal is. Clean, uniform sized images being displayed along side the story. A user would be able to either upload the image, or provide a link for it. And it would be rendered the same way for every post.
Now, a code base that has this function. Is the open source zenphoto, here is an example of their working demo gallery.
I dont want people commenting on images, i dont need a photo gallery or anything elaborate. Just the simple addition of users being able to :
1. Upload an image for the story post.
2. Link to an existing image online for the story post.
And for those images to be formatted and cropped to a specified size. The images don't even need to link to bigger versions of themselves, i don't need any thumbnailing. The images will link right to the source.
I have really fallen for pligg and I really need to see a solution to this asap. I am more then willing to pay a talented and willing developer to create this mod, and I would be happy to share the creation with the community.
Thank you all very much.
