Challenges

Crop images like Instagram

As per the client’s demand, image cropping should be precisely same as Instagram. And this is the biggest challenge faced by our developers. After taking help from some Third party APIs, they developed a custom algorithm to achieve the same ratio of cropping as Instagram.

Video Trimming

In this scenario, users should upload small duration videos. So our developers need to provide an option to trim the video before uploading. During the development phase, it was quite complex to develop an actual video trimmer. But, our developer's long experience helped us to make custom video trimmer that enables users to trim video before upload it to the BStar.
