Advice on an 'add caption to image' plugin (similar to roflbot or lolbuilder) (2 posts)

    I need to build a plugin so users can add a 'fail' caption to images and submit them to http://www.shipmentoffail.com

    1. The image will either be uploaded from the user's computer, or the user will enter a url of an image already on the web.

    2. They can then add text to the image
    a) Enter caption in textfield
    b) Choose font from dropdown menu (impact, comic sans, arial)
    c) Choose size from dropdown menu (tiny, small, medium, large)
    d) Choose position using radio buttons or other mechanism, any combo of top/middle/bottom and left/center/right

    3. The final step is to submit it to Shipment of Fail. This will simply email the captioned image to me.

    See ROFLBOT for an idea of how it would work, I pretty much want to build a simpler version of this I guess.

    But I'm a designer first and foremost, not a programmer... any advice on the easiest way to do this much appreciated!

    Thank you :)

    Possible future features:

    – The submission is watermarked, and automatically posted to a 'User submissions' category of the blog. Like the lol cat builder.
