Preparing images for a shopping cart can be quite difficult. You want as close a view as possible, but you also need each image to be about the same size.
Cropping cuts out important parts. Scaling leaves background bars at the edge and everything is to small. This tool helps.
Last night at WordPress Providence, we discussed WP’s Achilles heal.
We have a huge repository of thousands of great plug-ins, but many of them could be much stronger if only collaboration was a bit easier.
The obvious solution is to switch from a SVN repository to Git (GitHub).
How in the world do you get a huge community like WordPress to switch?
As we continued the conversation this morning it occurred to me that maybe we don’t have to.
Could we copy over the most popular plug-ins to GitHub and start working as a community to make them better?
Could we do the same with core?
What about themes?
Seems like we could even merge in updates to SVN from the plug-in authors.
I will be testing this idea in the next few days, but first I wanted to get your feed-back.
Pros? Cons? Things to watch out for?
