Google Summer of Code Hacker,
I've looked on php.net and it looks that almost all effects(contrast,brightness,gamma,blur
greyscale,sepia) can be done using native php functions. It means that they will be reasonably
fast. The only problem is with sharpening because we will need to do it manually pixel by pixel and it can be very slow. So I've started to think about abandoning sharpening.
Timeline for this project is unfortunately quite long(working and studying takes a lot of time) I assume that I will be able to close this project by the end of this year. As I will be working hard on it during Christmas break I would ask you for graphics in advance to have everything ready before Christmas.
For contrast,brightness and gamma we will need to have some kind of sliders for other effects like blur,greyscale and sepia we will need only icons.
snipshot.com did really good job implementing these features. We can borrow some ideas for design from them.
It would be great if Will will be able to make design before christmas.

Great to see new features! I am flat out this week before I take off for a month over the new year/ christmas so I may not be able to get the design out to you but don't let me hold you up!
All you really need is to do a search for a couple icons to use - try GNOME, Tango and other open source logo sets and just try and keep the current design. Or if you want, Just do the html and create the links as just plain links and in the new year I will go through and do all the design styling for the image editor before we release it
