In need of a Transparency Program capable of taking an input file <image jpg/jpeg> and splitting that image into segments, segments based upon a horizontal slider (the variables would be 2, 4, then 8). The display needs to include a faint line that distinguishes the seperate segments (but staring closely at it will look like the entire image, except that each segment could potientially have a different transparency. Transparency needs to be adjustable by a slider bar for all 4 quarters, independantly (vertical bar). It should be able to function in all windows platforms, atleast Windows XP. Would really like to see an OS independant program.
**IMPORTANT ADDED INFORMATION!!
**Just to clarify for everyone more about the project. The output of the transparency is all we care about, we have no need to save the newly transparent image or segments, we just want to see the output via the screen. If you can accomplish this task by taking the jpg/jpeg format and converting it on the output side to png or anything transparent happy codex thats fine. The main point is the ability to browse for a jpg/jpeg image load it into the program, then be able to split that image into segments (2,4 or 8) ((to further explain what I mean about segments, You have 1 image, you split it into 2 segments now you have half of the image on one side and half of the image on the other side. If you take that image and split it into 4 then you have quarter of the picture in the top-left, quarter in top-right, etc..etc..)). The ability to save the output is not needed, just the display of it. It is also important to be able to adjust the transparency of each segment by clicking on the segment and then using our vertical transparency bar. If you wish not to attempt to convert the jpg/jpeg then you may use black as your background. Language is not important to us, functionality is: So if your suggesting an odd (not c/c++ application) then we would ask that you would 'sell' us on why the language you are choosing would function better. I hope this helps all of the questions.
