What is it?
It converts bitmap images to html table layouts and provides for easy scaling of cells using sliders and text entry fields. It has a very reductionist lean to it, in that it is easy to reduce a photograph down to a more abstract lower resolution image. It exports to both graphic and html formats. It will have editing functions like a pencil, eraser, paint bucket, hand and gradient tools to allow for more creative freedom. It will have z sort able layers, palettes and an eyedropper.
It can import bmp, jpg and gif files. It is set to output lossless 24 bit png files but jpeg and gif export are planned. It also has a component that randomly grabs photos from flickr from random wordlists sorted by interesting. The image absorbed, below was scraped automatically by the reductionizer. I doodled on it with the pencil tool after reducing it.
Assorted Planned Features
cut and pasting of table cells
layer window with ability to specify layer as a table or graphic with drag z sorting
support for css layers in export
reduction of number of colors
specify URL for table background image and proper html export
better table optimization
