I've been tasked to create a web-based application that
allows a user to upload an image of their head then to erase and
resize it to fit a stock body. The final swf will work somewht like
except it will have an actual head...
Could someone point me to a similar project/src/tute where I
could learn the method?
Well I've got a project coming up with a similar theme and I
can tell you you'll be making use of the bitmap api. There's a lot
of code and help in the Actionscript Bible chapter 18, "Using the
Bitmap API". That should see you clear.
