About

StackImage 2 is the successor to StackImage - but it is anything but an incremental update. StackImage 2 allows you to design your very own unique custom flair from scratch. Just how customizable is StackImage 2? Well, you can...

  • Set the size of the flair (both width and height)
  • Set the background-color and border color as well as the width of the border
  • Add any item from your profile to your flair (except 'about me')
  • Set the font, font style, size, and color of each item
  • Set the size of your Gravatar and the site icon
  • Preview the flair with your own account information

To design your flair, simply use the interactive tool to drag-and-drop the components you want onto your flair. You can then move the items around and resize them.

Once you're done, just click 'save' and decide between pre-generated HTML code and a JPG image that you can embed on forums / etc. Both will stay up to date with your account.

Note: this tool is still under development, so please feel free to post any bugs you find or features you'd like to see. Keep your eyes peeled for new features.

Mmmm, closed source... :-( –  jmendeth May 24 '11 at 15:07
    
@jme: Well... the client side portion of the application is obviously not closed source - you can see how the editor works and the calls to the server that it makes. I am considering releasing the source code for the image-generating portion of the source code. –  Nathan Osman May 24 '11 at 17:13
    
:( requires a login/password otherwise it's awesome –  austinbv Jul 26 '11 at 14:10
    
@austinbv: The login / password is required so that StackImage 2 can store the information about the flair you create. Otherwise it would need to be passed as a query string parameter... which is unfeasible. –  Nathan Osman Jul 26 '11 at 16:57
    
SE sites don't require passwords and allow using other authentication systems. It'd be nice if this service followed suit. –  jamesdlin May 14 '12 at 11:20
    
@jamesdlin: I am currently in the process of unifying the accounts on all of my web applications, so at least there will only be a single name / password to remember. The reason I need authentication is because the tool needs to store a lot of information for each flair instance - more than I could fit in the query string of a URL. Therefore, to facilitate the storage and to eventually (though not yet implemented) allow for editing instances, authentication is required. –  Nathan Osman May 14 '12 at 18:04
    
@GeorgeEdison Sure, but it'd be nice if you didn't require password-based authentication and instead allowed using, say, OpenID or Google. –  jamesdlin May 14 '12 at 19:30
    
@jamesdlin: Ah, I get it. Well, depending on how things go, that may end up being a possibility. –  Nathan Osman May 14 '12 at 20:49
