Hi, experts

I wonder where I can find example of building a flash piece that regular people can use SWF to select multiple images from desktop, import them to stage, add text and be able to push a button and export to a JPEG file. In a more fancy way, be able to adjust the quality and preview it before export. I am not familiar with AS3 and is it possible to build in AS2 ?

Here is a really nice example to export video but it is in AS3 http://www.bytearray.org/?p=26

Please advises

This is absolutely possible but comparatively easier in AS3.0 than AS2.0

As in AS3.0 you will be able to use the JPGEncoder classes to export image as jpg with defined quality.

There are various applications which does these things, of them I like this the most - an online photoshop - http://pixlr.com/editor/

In your case use FileReference to load an image, use text related APIs to insert textFiled with some text and then export the whole as JPG using the JPGEncoder.
