User Profile Image Filter

Good morning, @Sven and GSA pplz.

I wanted to know if there is a way SER might one day add an option to alter profile images on-the-fly, sort of like the PHP imagefilter(), with a user interface and randomizers.

Alter color data and/or pixel data to make unique avatars.

On a slightly different note, it could also alter filename, filetype,  and possibly file data fields, just to add more diversity.

Hmm..I realize many times the file is renamed by the system it's uploaded to..still..

This module could also work with any images GSA-SER is posting.

    well it would only work with files SER uploads....for images it is usually using remote URLs with full path.

    True...tho it would be cool to have for all images.

    I guess the engines are dynamically typing the filepaths into the CMS'es or whatever each engine is dealing with, and the target site itself pulls the image those from the external list once the engine "hits" submit on the form?

    I guess u could also have a server-side script that continuously creates new batches of altered files at set intervals? So in that case, you'd have potential identical images in one run, but nothing beyond that.

    But what about filenames/types? Could they really change? Can SER just have a directory specified as the loaded image files, or does it always have to be the full path of individual image files?

    I can try to optimize the path/file name when submitting.
    Thanked by 1Deeeeeeee

    next version tries to always take a random keyword for that filename and hopefully if that engine uses it, it will improve seo.
