    I've been teaching myself Photoshop CS3 for a while now (thanks Uguel707 for all your suggestions) but for what it does this looks a good tool, would like to have a go.

    Nice one ronjor :thumb:

    Brilliant tech, and looks great, but sounds like a copyright nightmare just waiting to explode !

    Plus check this out, imagine the servers and ISP's and your bandwith load to do this, and just for one picture !!! This is only a fraction -

    Yeah that's what i was thinking, i've got an 8 Core Xeon server with RAID 10 but just compiling one image would probably buckle it.

    I've got a script that makes 100 concurrent http requests (to social networking sites) when the user clicks, each request averages 25kb and it generates quite a load in peak times. I can only imagine 3,000 simultaneous requests with many images in the 1mb and up range then the image filtering and rendering algo on top.

    I bet Google is compiling the source as we speak. Very interesting application though, but i wouldn't say better than photoshop just very different than it.
