I need a simple piece of software where the user can enter an image (in .jpeg or .gif), enter some text, and then the software puts that text over the image.
Then, the software creates the new image with the text over it without overwriting the original image.
This has been done before and should be a fairly simple project for a good programmer.
The purpose of this is simply to brand your images so people are less inclined to save as and copy them, as it now has your text (containing something like your name or website URL) across the image.
The text should be in the middle of the image and, if possible, be diagonally upwards. I also want the user to be able to select the size of the text, which is necessary because of the different image sizes.
I also want the text to be transparent so that it doesn't interfere with the image too much.
Like I said, this has been done before and I know you can do this with photoshop. However I don't have photoshop and I just want to make this easy for people who don't know anything about graphics.
The winning bidder will get much more work from me in future if the project goes well.
