Each week must end with a feast – if not, you’re not much better than a beast. That’s a rather funny one and, if you ask me, it’s not too far from reality. A nice image can really brighten you day, trust me! Great, but what’s better than a nice image? An entire gallery of nice images, of course, so today’s subject, namely CamanJS, fits in perfectly into this picture, don’t you think? 😉

While there seems to be nothing really special about CamanJS, the official mumbo-jumbo goes like this – “The main focus of CamanJS is manipulating images using the HTML5 canvas and Javascript. It’s a combination of a simple-to-use interface with advanced and efficient image/canvas editing techniques. It is also completely library independent and can be safely used next to jQuery, YUI, Scriptaculous, MooTools, etc.”

Latest stable release of the script came out on the 24st of February and it’s labeled 2.1 and the browsers recommended for it are these: Google Chrome, Safari 5+, Firefox 4+, Opera 10+ and, finally, Internet Explorer 9 or later. In case you’re wondering about its features but don’t want to check another site yet, you should know that CamanJS‘ simple interface grants you access to a few pretty interesting image filters, including gamma, brightness, exposure, saturation or contrast but, above anything else, this JavaScript manipulation library comes with a layer system similar to what you can find in Photoshop or Gimp, creating endless possibilities.

Oh, yeah, here’s one last thing – for a quick look at some demos, check this page. That’s all, folks! 😉
