    What software are you using?

    Will you add a privacy policy to say, for example, that you don't keep copies of people's images?

    Instead of saying "We support a very large number of image formats", maybe you could give the whole list, or point people to the list, or say something like "We support all formats supported by product xxxxx." That way people wouldn't have to guess.

    On your About page, "its" is missing the apostrophe.

    Does the "Sponsored Links" section mean you plan to keep it free but will put ad links there to pay for the site?

    Pretty nice service for the Novice.

    What about a watermark option for users? And then hosting it for them? Like a photobucket on crack. Just an idea :)

    Second page after upload image is a little confusing. I am looking at resize page and searching for effects to apply. And the only one way to move to effects is resize by 100%. Maybe you want to move resize to the same page where effects are. This way resize can be done after some effects are applied :)

    Nice otherwise. Yeah, and watermarks would be cool.

    for basic image resizing I'd say this is a pretty useful tool for some one with zero photoshop experience.

    Also the layout aint to shabby either. good job

    I agree with the overall concensus, pretty good tool for the novice, you know the Windoze user with nothing but Paint.

    I also agree that you could add some features, the watermark is a good idea, and possibly a section to add type over the image, both of which are pretty easy to do using the PHP GD library that you are making pretty good use of.

    I would also consider creating some custom effects rather than just using the filters built into the GD Library. A few overlay effects would be really easy but could further entice a user.

    And you could definitly use a crop function, and the ability to stretch the image-- not every image that someone uploads will be a photo that they want to keep in proportion.

    Congrats! Good Job.

    I like it overall BUT the slider for the resize is acting kinda funky. Once you engage it, it's like you can't let it go.
