Hi all, does anyone have any recommendations for good WYSIWYG photo editing tools that we can incorporate into our application? 

At a minimum we need:
- cropping
- rotation

Nice to haves:
- Image treatment like brightness, contrast, etc
- Filters like instagram
- notation tools

What language are you writing your application in? Simon

Simon, the front-end is mostly HTML 5, Javascript, and Bootstrap. The backend is PHP on Yii. If you'd need more info than that my tech-half would need to answer the question.

Hi, In that case I would suggest that you try and utilize what is existing in html 5 and PHP. You may need to combine. A simple - IU think probably too simple example code in PHP can be found here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13325754/how-to-rotate-image-in-php This can easily be modified and for HTML5 try here http://www.isgoodstuff.com/2012/01/05/html5-image-in-canvas-tutorial/ If you can utilize PHP and/or HTNL5 you may find it easier going forward, external apps are brilliant but can change.

I've been working on building an up to date tool for image extracting, cropping, and using in iOS Applications.  If anyone out there knows of current open source projects working on this, (specifically using SprikeKit), I would be interested to know.

Check out aviary. They have a sample app for developers that shows the full range of functionality. http://aviary.com/ios We haven't integrated them yet but they were on our list. Almost anything you want to do you can do with them. The challenge is to cut out 95% of what they do and keep it simple. Carolyn
