This program will receive input - Title, Author, Back Cover Description, ISBN, Publisher, Price, book thickness, corporate logo url, background image url, initial font and layout choices, and other relevant text, and graphics. The program will generate a default cover and will then allow the user to modify the text, layout, and graphics as they see fit. Finally it will output several files: a resizable ecover graphic, a thumbnail, and a printable cover graphic. The user will also have a choice as to the file format for each type of file: jpg, png, gif, tiff, or eps. It will also output the final text as name=value pairs. For reference see: [login to view URL] [login to view URL] [login to view URL] [login to view URL] [login to view URL] [login to view URL] I like the way ecovergenerator works but my software must run server side. :-) This project will need to have the same layouts and basic features as the others including lighting effects rotations etc. User must be able to input whole cover graphics or graphic pieces to be combined into the final graphic. Graphics will include a barcode generated by [login to view URL] found at [login to view URL] Output should include a resizeable ebook graphic, thumbnail of ebook graphic, and printable 8 1/2 inch by 5 1/5 inch cover graphic that must look good as it will serve as the actual cover for a paperback book. Output formats should be jpg, png, gif, tiff, and eps. Printable cover graphic will include back cover, spine, and front cover as well as a scanable bar code in the lower right hand corner of the back cover. Output device for the printed version will be a 600 x 600 dpi color laser printer. Spine width should be set according to the thickness of the book.
