Software to Customize uploaded pictures on website for print

PrintPlanet.com - 4 hours 44 sec ago
Hi
New to the site and am looking for software that can be added to a magenta based website that analysis the up loaded pictures from customers and makes sure that the size is good enough for the print size. We are going to be doing some large printing onto furniture and the print sizes could get up to 36" x 76". A website that seems to have what we are looking for is Photos to Art | Great Big Canvas . Would appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks

Your Company's Energy Data Is an Untapped Resource

PNEAC Hot News - 6 hours 7 min ago
Most companies are unprepared for the emerging revolution in predictive energy analytics. In fact, many readers' eyes will have already glazed over at the preceding sentence, with the natural initial reaction that energy-related data isn't relevant to their jobs.
