Graphical editor using Javascript

Question by aakashbhowmick

I want to make an online card-making application. It should basically allow users to place available images into the template of the card, write text on it and decorate it – basic card customization. What javascript graphics library would be useful for this project ? Finally I would like to have a high resolution/vector image as the output which can be printed easily.

Answer by AlienWebguy

Raphael is great for SVG, etc.

Answer by Starx

To have a high resolution/vector image, you have to work with SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics), so far the web browser only support this. There are two ways you can do these.

  • Looking up for canvas libraries. I prefer Raphael as it supports SVG and animations as well.
  • With HTML5 and its Canvas features also you can create such system.
