One reason, why Typo3 is as successful: It is integrated. It has a workflow, you don't have to leave your web browser while creating your content.
Most CMSes have some sort of image upload capability. But, well, that's about it. You can't just take the picture of your digi cam, which might be more than thousand pixels wide and tall and put it up your web site. No, you need to resize it first. And crop it.
How about doing at least the cropping business within the web browser? There are already several ways to do that. A nice web application having cropping capabilities as well is the Rasterbator (as found in the comments of circle.ch). But, well, it needs the Flash plugin.
What about a solution that works without Flash? I've already played around with Walter Zorn's DHTML Library. So did Andrew Collington last year. His result is called Crop Canvas, he's using php with the GD libraries as a backend for it.
Setting up Crop Canvas was a breeze. I just put the files from Andy's website in a web directory, added the current version of the Drag N Drop Libraries to it and put in a nice image of my cat. A little bit off topic maybe: This was the first picture I took with my Casi Exilim Digicam. Ever.
Want to see an example? Here you go!
