First of all congratulation on the new 2011 Q2 release and introduction on new ImageEditor control. I understand this is just the beginning and I would like to know what is the roadmap for this control? Do we see new features such as image annotation coming soon?

Does this control support custom toolbar, as seen in RadEditor?

Hi Praetorion,

Thank you for your nice words. We hope that you will enjoy working with the new Image Editor.

Could you please explain in more details wheat do you mean by image annotation feature? Have you seen this feature offered by another Image editor control?

Yes, it is possible to add custom toolbars and custom buttons to the toolbar. Here is an example which demonstrates how to implement a custom Save button:

<telerik:RadImageEditor ID="RadImageEditor1"runat="server"ImageUrl="~/ImageEditor/images/hay.jpg"
Width="720px"Height="430px">
<tools>
<telerik:ImageEditorToolGroup>
<telerik:ImageEditorTool CommandName="SaveImage"ImageUrl="Save.png"/>
<telerik:ImageEditorTool CommandName="Rotate"/>
</telerik:ImageEditorToolGroup>
</tools>
</telerik:RadImageEditor>
<script type="text/javascript">
Telerik.Web.UI.ImageEditor.CommandList["SaveImage"] = function(imageEditor, commandName, args) {
imageEditor.saveImageOnServer("",true); //saves the image on the server - it either overwrites the file or keeps both files
};
</script>
</telerik:RadAjaxPanel>


All the best,

Maybe applying a lot more effects, and providing the ability to generate text with gradient fills, strokes, etc... If you were to combine what you've got with the Neodynamic ImageDraw SDK, you'd be able to come up with some snazzy things, I think. Also, the licensing is pretty flexible (I think). Also, using their SDK gives you a clean layered way to work with elements. So you'd have your image, maybe another image on top of that (though a bit transparent), and then all kinds of shapes and stylized text. Check out GuildPortal's banner builder in the Control Panel (you'd have to create a site) to see what I mean. It uses a lot of your controls already.

Just personally, though, I'd like to see you make this project a Photoshop for the web the way you made your WYSIWYG editor Word for the web. ;) The web could really use a tool that makes creating attractive, composite graphics easier. Just so many use cases I can see this in...

Image annotation in terms of overlay new image on top of existing image, provide date caption to the image, similiar to the current text caption but with preset text.

If possible, expose the control for user to access the image and perform custom actions. This way the control is flexible enough to allow user extend its functionality.

Hi Trey,

Thank you for your feature requests for RadImageEditor.

  • Highlight(with settable transparency, color size etc) *critical feature!! - Such functionality is not planned for the next Q3 2011 release. The ability to insert geometrical objects in an image is logged in our ToDo list but our ToDo list is already set and we will be unable to implement it for Q3 2011.
  • Image overlay(IE take a jpg and overlay as an annotation) - We plan to implement a similar feature (insert image in image) for Q3 2011.
  • Hyperlink annotation - Could you please provide more information about this feature? If possible send a screenshot of the required feature.

Hello Martin,

I logged the requested move / pan feature and we will try to implement it for the Q3 2011 release. Here is a link to the PITS item: http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/aspnet-ajax/7257

Hi,

The JavaScript code of the custom command should be placed under the RadImageEditor declaration. You can examine the code of the following demo for more information: Custom Server Commands.
