Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Does anybody knows how to create a kite colorizer that I could include on a web site or just use in a regular web browser ?
I can create the vector design itself in illustrator but I would need the code to create the colorizer in whatever tools web designers use these days.

I want to create my own design and play with colors but using paper and pencils is so 1980's.

Thanks !

Looking at some maps, it looks like you might be reasonably close to Tim Benson.

He is just an amazing kitester.

Don't know how far you are from Mark Clements?

Those 2 could keep you in kites and lessons for a lifetime.

Welcome to the Forum.

Tim is God but yes an amazing one

In general:

10 x wingspan = tricks

12.5 x wingspan = all around

15 x wingspan = precision figures

On an 8 foot kite that would be:

80 feet tricks
100 feet all around
120 feet precision figures

 hay ho I think I'm flying on long line if it's more than 40' , but for a beginner I'd agree with the above.
