I want to create image editor in so I am looking for open source image editor control for It should work like MS paint which provides add/ edit/ delete text and other images. So can any one help me in this?

I search on Google and found some of the image editors but I didn't find that which provides facility to insert some shapes, text and other things together.

Thanks for the reply but I have already seen this but it's not allowing me to add any extra shapes on image.

Let me also note, that I am sure that nobody really needs such thing. Maybe, some extreme loosers can be found, but, having powerful multi-plarform open-source GIMP, Inkscape and more, who except them will want to mess with on-line version?

Do you really think that those who are making things open source are looser? What do you mean by your comment?

Do you think the Android and Linux both are loosers as they are open source?

No, you cannot, at least, not right now. "I want to create image editor in" and "I am looking for open source image editor control" clearly contradict. After you find and use such control, you cannot consider yourself as an author of the editor.

See also my comment to the question. Who on Earth could be interested in such thing in practice?


Of course, you can find something:[^].

As you can see, commercial products are available, but I would not be so enthusiastic about open source.

This is explainable. This is because this topic is not really interesting. Why editing anything online? Of course, some part of commercial sector gladly use any opportunity to make some money on loosers wanting something "cool", but serious open source developers usually pay more attention for more reasonable problems. That's why multi-platform open-source editors are so good these days — there is a serious demand for them, and enough skills in really good developers…

I don't want ot be an author of that thing, I just want to use in my application. And that is not going to serve publicly. If you have any then please suggest otherwise it's fine.

OK, perfectly fine; then don't say "I want to create...".

See my updated answer then, after [EDIT].
