swfIR – a new twist for web images
You’re probably already familiar with sIFR, a technique that replaces boring HTML text with spiffy Flash text, without messing up your HTML markup. In the same vein comes swfIR, which uses Flash to perform a host of desirable modifications to images: borders, rounded corners, rotation and drop shadows.
In the past it would have taken a lot of repetitive Photoshop work to apply these sort of visual effects to images, and god forbid you ever redesigned the site and had to remove the effects from every single image. swfIR answers that problem by applying effects in automated, non-destructive fashion.
