Feature Request: Image Editor #9645
I've been thinking about Image Editing in the WordPress mobile apps. I wanted to improve the workflow of content creation on mobile. Instead of jumping between photos apps for simple image manipulation like cropping, rotation, brightness etc this all can be done within the WordPress app.
During WCEU, Matt mentioned that 3.7M images are uploaded every month via the mobiles apps. That's a lot of photos.
So i created a prototype with Framer to work around this issue. You can watch the demo video here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pdmuikkxm7f5vzu/WordPress-iOS-Image-Edit-Prototype-Idea-1.mov?dl=0
The prototype is intentionally simple. All the editing tools are based on OS level capabilities. Nothing fancy. I included only a few editing tools to keep the demo short but obviously there can be more. Like filters, editing multiple pictures at once with recipes (i call them recipes anyway) etc. There is also a simple Undo function.
Here's another prototype idea: https://www.dropbox.com/s/bd37d4ca57xeq97/WordPressiOSPhotoEditingAutoLongPress.mov?dl=0
This prototype has 3 additions.
When the user taps for the first time on the Auto icon function or any other editing tool, a short message appears to explain the non obvious functionality of the long tap on the photo. The tap disappears right after.
It's a hybrid approach for communicating the not so obvious functionality of the long tap. A help message presented in such a way so that the person has to complete the desired action while getting value from the "educational" process of using the long tap.
@nozomimimi is this something you were thinking of?
Hi @Titanas0! Apologies for the delayed response. I was on a break for some time.
The new prototype looks awesome!
Again, thank you for making this! Can't wait to have this feature :)
@nozomimimi welcome back :)
Not particular reason. I was thinking about this and decided to go with the familiar location that matches what is currently available in the Photos app on iOS instead of the editing menu. What works best in this particular case I don’t know. I would choose either and A/B test
I can’t wait to see this being part of app!
@nozomimimi here's another prototype with two main additions:
Magic Fix is.. well a dream.. but essentially it builds on the idea of all the capabilities of modern smartphones with dual front cameras and built-in silicon for A.I. It goes beyond Auto Image Color Correction. What it does is a quick analysis of the photo with "magic" suggestions based on context and meta info. Some examples:
a) An image with high contrast areas could ideally be converted to black and white with a small tweak on curves to make it more dramatic
