Mike Ryan Posted January 2, 2009 Share Posted January 2, 2009 The Image Editing Software Project (IESP) "Through difference lies creation" About While we may retain our arguements over which image editing program takes the thrown, or which one is better suited for particular task, we can all agree that no image editing program is perfect nor capable of harnessing the power of today's computer related world. As such, this is a community wide collobaration in which it is upon the users to imagine, create, and design a mockup of The Image Editing Software. Developement Too keep things organized and relatively simple, I will be responsible for the timing and execution of different portions of the softwares developement. Now keep in mind, we aren't necessarily attempting to actually program this beast, just discuss it. Here is the list of different cycles we must go through so as to establish each layer of this software: Core Principles and PhilosophyExecution of Principles and PhilosophiesMind to the CanvasExecuting the DesignFinishing the workPublishing January 2nd, 2008: Core Principles and Philosophies As a good start, I think it is most important to determine the shape of things to come, that is general philosophy and the core principles of the software. Here are some warm debate topics to start up the engine: Mind Over Matter: Too which degree should a tool take control of an image? User Interface over Functionality: How functional, in proportion to UI, should the IESP be? Extendibility: How far should the IESP be extendible by user generated content? Cool Factor vs Basic Factor: To what extent should a tool go to the 'cool factor' while retaining its basic functionality? Of course, that is not what your discussion should be limited too. Feel free to create new subjects of interest, and don't fear over asking questions. After all, the IESP is as much yours as it is mine Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
