Hi,

I'm currently learning drupal to be the host of a little project I'd like to experiment with.

Selling Canvases...

It seems a great platform however I'm wondering if anybody might know an extension etc which will enable a customer to upload their image to their order.

i.e. you want to purchase a canvas of your daughter on the beach.  You click the size you want, upload the image and finally make payment.

I'm looking at buying a Theme because there are some really great themes out there at fantastic prices...

Any help appreciated!

Rich

I've just found the modules directory and came across this module

Ubercart Attribute Files : http://drupal.org/project/uc_attribute_files

If I bought a pre built theme can I add this module to it?  Does it depend on the Theme or is it easy or just a NO NO!

Cheers Rich

Customers would have to be able to sign up as users to upload files, because otherwise you leave your site open to problems. You can create a webform using the webform module and create the firlds you want to use, including an image.
But are customers going to pay through your website as well?

Forgot to add, you can add modules to any theme. they are independent of each other. Also, when you pick a there, make sure you look at the layouts and where you can add blocks of text. Some have WAY more options, which makes it easier to populate with text and images.

Hi, Thanks for your comments -

Ideally I'd like customers not to have to become a member, ideally just select the product they want, upload the picture, then pay using ubercart.

What kind of problems would I face if they don't have to sign up to the site?

Ohh cool, "Beautiful FREE Themes" sounds good to me!  To you have any favorites?

The problem with allowing anonymous  users to upload files is that dangerous code can be embedded in it, even an image.
