edit an image in flash have the changed image to be sent thru email all from within flash

Can anyone help on how this might be done... I understand how to do the 1st part but the second part is tricky.

(1st part)I have an image of an object in flash and when the user types, in a form field, their name will appear on the object.
(2nd part) Is to have that image with name on it be saved and then sent to the user's email.

Thank for any help on this...

Mark

I think you'd have to use someother image library, such as php imagemagik or gd library.. output the form variable to the image library and have it dynamically create the image. Just google php dynamic image creation, then google php email attachment to handle the emailing of the file. hope this helps

Not sure what your programing skillz are but if your able to go AS3 you could use the ByteArray Class to encode your data. Here is an example of a PNG encoder

But even at that point you will want to send your byte data off a php/asp script that will recreate the image on the server and send you back a link. Here are some examples
