My name is Bill and I am looking for a coder and image specialist to help me with a project. You seem to be someone who might have some of the skills I'm looking for, and I would like to ask you a few questions and buy a couple hours of your consulting/scripting time (the $40 budget for this micro-project). Depending on your performance, interest and exact areas of expertise, I might then have additional, and more substantial, work for you.
Before accepting this job for the two hours of consulting/scripting, could you please answer a few questions? I would like to establish the areas in which I can question you in more detail.
- How familiar are you with Imagemagick and Graphicsmagick? Can you write shell scripts in C that will invoke a graphics package like one of those to process bitmap images? Can you write specific (and fast, efficient) scripts to achieve specific image effects and transformations I can describe?
- What is your level of expertise with vector images?
- What is your level of expertise with HTML5's CANVAS element?
- Can you please tell me more about your background in imaging? What kind of work was it, what kind of images?
I'll look forward to hearing from you if you are interested. Thank you for your time!
