It's been amazing year for Cropp.me. When we opened it to the public, the cropping tool was featured in TheNextWeb, Gizmodo, LifeHacker and many, many other blogs known and unown to us. People started writing their own reviews, coming up with ideas for additional features, giving us tips on how to improve the service, requesting API access for the cropping. It's really touching when you see tool as small and simple (but smart) as Cropp.me to be so much loved and most importantly - used.
Here's great video tutorial on how you can use Cropp.me. We could not make it better, thank you!

Cropping sounds trivial, right? But how do you feel about the face, the body, or another important object in the image being cut in half when you generate square thumbnails to feature some of the images from your collection on the homepage of your site? Here are five reasons to love our smart cropping API:
And a bonus one: you can get very creative, for example by showcasing really nice looking collages and listing of your images cropped in different sizes and still to be sure that the most visually important parts are well preserved no mater of the aspect ratio, thanks to the smart-cropping :)

We are very excited to announce that we just achieved a major milestone - we fully automated the process of creating trial API accounts for people who want try out our technologies immediately!
This comes along with the launch of our new website. You can use the API request form there to apply for free access to the color extraction and multi-color search and smart cropping and slicing APIs. Just a few clicks away from getting immediate access to the technologies:
Simply fill in your name, contact details and briefly mention how do you plan to use the API:
In a few second you'll get a confirmation e-mail that we've received your request, and in less than an hour you'll receive another e-mail containing all API credentials and a PHP kit. You can use the kit as a blue-print for integratimg the technologies in your own web projects.
Even if PHP is not the platform of your choice - you can use the PHP kit and the API documentation as a reference how to do it in your own platform of choice.
In fact we (as a startup) are more than open for people willing to contribute. So if you use the APIs in another platform and you have already implemented a client - we will highly appreciate to share it with us and the community. Also, we are starting to hire soon, so this may be a big plus for those of you who decide to apply :)
