Anybody else want to weigh in before I reveal why we can’t agree on the color.
I don’t know diddly about Mac products, so hopefully someone else can help you there – but I don’t think iMac’s can be used as an extended display for your phone.
I think you will need a stand alone display – TV or “Monitor” that supports HDMI/Display/DVI/VGA.
It sounds like you are using the USB (wrong port) on your HTC Evo. I think only the HTC Evo “4G” has the mini HDMI port.

AFAIK all the featured stuff is hand picked by staff – no requirements other than luck of the draw.
I recall someone else asking a long time ago and general consensus was to ask staff (item reviewer team I believe) to feature you / your item.
I didn’t realize you get a badge for having an item in the “Weekly Features” box – I thought the badge was for being on the bottom of the front page – or at least that’s when I got mine.
You can buy adapters.
iPhone has a mini-display port you can adapt to just about anything: ie:vga http://store.apple.com/us_smb_78313/product/MB572Z/B/mini-displayport-to-vga-adapter
My Droid has a mini HDMI connector which can be adapted to other inputs : http://www.bestbuy.com/site/rocketfish-4-high-speed-hdmi-to-mini-hdmi-cable/3496894.p?id=1218406268404
A friend and I are arguing over what color this is. I say Yellow, he says Green. No tricks – It’s imply aPNG file I composed in Photoshop. What do you think?
AFAIK featured authors are staff picked.
You must have been featured at one time or another as you have the “Featured” badge. (person with star on shoulder)
Ah! Desktop apps are out of my league! Have not written an app with compiled code in more than a decade. I don’t know the requirements or expectations of desktop software.
The competition thing was just a funny. I’m just here to have fun.
I don’t know the possibility or limitations of desktop apps, but if you post a screenshot here, we can try to help.
Just a thought: If you have front/back end UI, you might need to make it better / cleaner / prettier. I’ve learned that an unstyled form on a blank white page won’t make the cut – even though everything else is up to par.
Does your script include an upload form or does it just rip though files that have already been uploaded? If no upload form, maybe add one.
Does your script have the ability to set a custom position? IE: 15 px from top, 20px from side.
Another thing you might consider is a “Gallery” or “Explorer” type page (if you don’t already have one) where the user can see all the images (per directory / server / etc.)
Does your script backup the images before it applies the watermark? Maybe add the ability to backup the originals so that if something happens during the watermarking process (or the user wants to change the watermark later), the original is still intact.
I just created a custom watermarking script for a side project I’m working on – with some unique options … wait – I could sell that here! What am I doing helping the competition? lol JK (or I’ll at least give you a head start ) I had to watermark a logo on each image – but the issue came about that the logo was mostly white and didn’t show up very well when the image being watermarked had white in that area. I had to code a way to detect the color of the image being watermarked (in the area the watermark would fall) – if it was x% close to “white”, I used a second (dark version) logo instead of the white version (color inversion wouldn’t work because the logo did have other colors matching the brand). In this same script I dynamically changed the size of the logo to be proportional to the size of the image (with a min and max). IE: a 200px watermark on a 200px image is a fail – just as a 10px watermark on a 1000px image is a fail. On top of both of those obstacles, I wanted the watermark positioned with appropriate padding/spacing to the edge(s) of the image. This one sounds easy, but it’s really not. a 20px padding on a 200px image does not look the same as a 20px padding on a 1000px image.
Just another though: You need to detect / compensate for “Read/Write” permissions when writing files – there is an unlimited number of server configurations – you never know what environment people will try to run your script on. Make sure you check permissions and give appropriate errors (to make troubleshooting easier). Also, watch out for file paths (Linux vs. Win) issues.
