Had that on the last project I was working on. Of 16 thumbnails I changed with the plugin only one thumbnail’s dimensions found its way into the database. I cleared the cache by any (reasonable ;) method I know of, until I had the idea to look into the db, and there I found all the old dimensions.

Well, that’s definitely a bug that should be fixed.

The half finished version should still be accessible via the link above. The completed, bug-free version is stymied by a lack of double-click-to-crop-goodness progress, and a severe deficit in time.

Would the as-is version work faulty if you’d simply remove the double click function for those of us waiting for correct pixel values? I’d be really, really happy to have any pre-version that doesn’t distort/blur the images because of wrong DB values.

Is anyone else having images thumbnail blurry after ebl_image was activated?

I guess that’s what I’m describing here.

Thumbnail blurriness is generally going to be an issue with GD on the server.

Also, if you think your thumbnail is egregiously bad, post a version of it so I can look at it.

Ah, okay. Any info on what parameters I might need to look at and tweak. Admittedly most of the jpgs are already web optimized to about 80% lossy. I can see about outputting a higher resolution but that would not be a total solution since it would make my stuff load slower than I would want for a professional-geared site.

Cool, Eric!

The only thing I’m dreaming of at the moment is that ebl_image_edit reliably enters correct pixel measures into the database. Can’t let clients do DB editing. I’ve described the circumstances some weeks ago here, below the third quotation.

Thanks :)

Hi all,
here’s a small tip code I wrote to simplify the UI: http://txptips.com/simplify-the-ebl_image_edit-plugin
Take a look at the image and video of the result.

  • The double-click feature will be great, I also tried doing it but unfortunately without a success.
  • Contrast feature
  • Sharpness feature
  • “Advanced edit” link leads to edit the image using FotoFlexer (API link)

Any of these will be really great! please :)

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] ebl_image_edit v1.0

So, a year down, and an entire summer to code. I’ll be putting up a fixed version with the latest browser tweaks shortly. I’ve been redoing my page over the past couple of days.

Good news: EBL Image Edit will continue.

Bad News: With the burgeoning upswing in HTML 5 compatibility, ebl-upload will be killed off. There isn’t any real need for a flash based solution any longer. Accordingly, I’ll rewrite ebl_upload to leverage the multi-upload capability of HTML 5, and, it will be OSS.

Here’s a packaged version that I threw together just now. Consider it unstable and untested.

Cool cool! :)

Previously I asked you for a feature of using “FotoFlexer” as advanced editing, but now there are nice HTML5 editors out there that may be better to use such as aviary and CloudCanvas
(personally I probably never gonna use it, but clients may)
