Before you start, please read the section marked NOTES at the bottom.
I am looking for a programmer who is skilled in writing batch process software for Paint Shop Pro. I use version X8 at present.
Please note that I am looking at this batch process primarily to deal with product photography on a plain pure white background. If you can make it work for "busier" images, that would be excellent, but is not a requirement.
The batch process should do the following:
1. Open any allowable image;
2. Make a note of the image dimensions of the image in pixels;
3. Find the main subject of the image, check it's width in pixels and precisely centre it on the image;
4. Add or remove a border to recreate an image of exactly the same number of pixels as you started with;
5. Save with the original file name;
6. Close the image file.
Things I do not want in your proposal:
a. examples of websites you have written;
b. offers of SEO;
c. the words "I have read through your project and I understand ... etc" (or similar) when you clearly haven't done so;
d. examples of images you have designed;
e. any mention of Photoshop;
f. anything else irrelevant;
g. stock bid proposal text that you couldn't possibly have written in two seconds.
Three things I do want to see please:
a. How many Paint Shop Pro bespoke batch processes have you written in 2017? (Please provide a sample - ONE sample!!!)
b. How long would you expect to take to write this bespoke batch process?
c. The words, "PSP is amazing", just so that I know you read the whole project description.
If your proposal is good but incomplete I'll give you one chance to get it right. If you pester me when I say "no", I'll blacklist you. You have been warned.
