  1. I read this here : http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2601097/how-to-get-the-mouse-position-without-events-without-moving-the-mouse Actually, I thought that screenx and screeny would give the mouse position at moment the event was generated, not now. I was wrong ?
  2. Hello, I read that there is no way to get the current mouse position (but this is really what I am after ultimately). However, is it possible to get the list of events currently in the stack of events ? In other words, is there a way to actively pull the next events without waiting for the system to call the corresponding callback. I would like to skip all past mouse position events to go to the most recent one and process only this one. But how to know that there are no more at a given moment ? In last resort, is there a way to even know that there are more events waiting in the stack of events? Can we know the number of events in the stack while we are processing another one ? Thanks Gilbert
  3. Thanks for the replies. Yes, I agree with Ingolme : Photoshop is very expensive and not much people are familiar with Gimp (and IMHO, it is not very intuitive). Both are too big and slow tools to efficiently do the small editions we need to do over many large images. We need to go over millions of images, spending about 15 secs on each of them. This is very tedious and we need a good tailored tool to avoid any inefficiencies. We need to be able to train staff quickly, no need to learn these complicated commercial softwares and all their options. We keep an opened mind but it will definitely be a web app. Any other pointers to existing libraries, tools, applications,... ? Thanks!
  4. Hello, We are about to start a project that involves editing large ( 6 - 50 Mpixels) images via a web app. The requirements are: - speed, fluidity, precision (following mouse over details) - zoom & pan (quick response) - editing the pixels with a limited number of tools ( brush of variable size ) - saving back the edited image on the server - small edition on many images per minutes The type of edition we need to do is quite limited and simple (it is mostly adding or removing pixels with a brush tool). Are there any library we can use to speed up our development, should we build our own custom editor from raw html5 ... ? What is the modern way to do something like that ? We want to keep an open-mind so it could be an applet (for example I found this one: http://www.jhlabs.com/ie/ieapplet.html ) or any other library. It might also be better to code everything ourselves to reach our needs. I am interested in hearing any recommendations. Thanks in advance! Gilbert
