My web design client wants for his web site to allow his customers to be able to:
layout (design) their own text+image(s) for the product he sells without needing InDesign, Quark, etc. and without needing them to be a graphic designer.
Are there any web-based authoring scripts (perhaps flash-based) that allow simple dragging images in (and resizing), and typing text around it.
Perhaps a good product analogy would be business cards - can a client do a rough "assembly" of what they want?
Note in this instance, my client is willing to accept the "artwork" as a rough guide (and then re-do it in his own tools base don the mock-up).
It's okay to ignore font issues, and just allow the basic web browser fonts.
The end-user's design would then be rendered in some format and emailed(?) to the client's office so they could see the design intent.
