Site design tool advice needed

Site design tool advice needed

Site design tool advice needed

I need to create a site allowing to manipulate images, something like http://www.polyvore.com/, so that you can drag and drop several images, resize them, etc.
Would appreciate any advice on what technologies/tools/techniques are used to create something like that.

RE: Site design tool advice needed

A quick look at the page source shows that it's simply javascript. The actual code is linked from http://www.polyvorecdn.com/rsrc/montage-0ea53bbfa98341993f287eaad09ee6b5.js although it is compressed and quite hard to follow. If you want to replicate this sort of site I would suggest a prepared framework such as jquery

RE: Site design tool advice needed

Not sure which jquery plugin would work best, but there are several "picture" tools already built in php/java using jquery.

I know int he Drupal framework, there are several such, and WordPress as well... Of course, you can have a static html site with just this piece embedded, I'd imagine.  And I'm sure there are other CMS options with this idea as well, in flavors such as WordPress and Joomla.
