WS-ThumbsGenerator: Using the drag-and-drop and file system APIs with Adobes JPEGEncoder to create image thumbnails
Posted on February 1, 2008
For a current project called "WS-Slideshow" I've started to develop a tool, which allows the user to customize its own "WS-Slideshow" pretty easy. It based on Adobes AIR Beta 3 Adobes AIR 1.0.
The current prototype implements the drag-and-drop and file system API's using Adobes JPEGEncoder to create image thumbnails quick and easy. Therefore the prototype is called "WS-ThumbsGenerator" .
The code behind based on Tom Bray's easyMVC concept, which is the first choice for such prototypes like "WS-ThumbsGenerator". Fore more information about easyMVC check out the excellent tutorial of Jon Baker as well.
Anyway, I've decided to share the full source of the prototype for the community, it may be helpful for anyone.
BTW: The "WS-Slideshow" is a free Flash based slide show developed in AS3 using PureMVC. A desktop version based on Adobes AIR is in process. Check it out!
