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

I’m not sure if I’m interested in adding that functionality and duplicating what’s already on the Resize tab. I can see how that might come in handy and eliminate an extra step, but I don’t know if the benefits are worth the increased code. The user can theoretically just resize the image first, and crop it to size afterwards.

Yes, I can see the problem there.

It’s not a big issue.
I was just wondering whether perhaps the separate Crop and Resize tabs could be rolled into one (e.g Original – Crop/Resize) offering that functionality since the Thumbnail tab does work that way already.

I think, rather than locking the preset sizes, it might make more sense to allow resizing but use the preset as the target size.

Anyway, I’m not a programmer and I’m very happy with the current version :-)

OT: Eeek, you’ve just reminded me of a project I’d long forgotten about: an automatic watermarking plugin that I promised to write ages ago. I’ve written most of the code, I just need to port it to a plugin and make the interface for it. Thanks for (inadvertently) reminding me!

OT: Stef, any news on this one?
I am currently looking for ways to integrate a watermark feature into the new photo site I am building.

Cheers,

Snowed under this week, and probably next week too. I’m going to get smd_tags out asap and a couple of other updates, then I might try and turn my attention to the watermarking plugin. In the meantime, scan through the watermarking topic and post your thoughts there so we don’t pollute Eric’s thread!

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

This plugin is awesome, great work Eric!

Any chance you could make is possible to resize images to a specified width or height (not just the greatest dimension), with the other dimension being kept proportional of course?

It already resizes proportionally.

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

OK, my apologies I just read the documentation somewhere that made it sound like there was a single field to input a resize value (which would apply to the greatest dimension), but in reality, there are already height / width fields. Thanks again for a wonderful plugin!

BTW, feel free to delete my comment in the plugin’s article on your website as well.

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

it’s really good with the custom sizes Eric!
Thanks you!

but the crop is still not function as we talk about
am I missing something or you didn’t work on it yet please?

edit
again what I need is:
whan I select a size from the custom list, lets say 100×50
it resizing the selection to 100×50, that’s good.
but what next I need is – if I stretch the selection to be bigger to crop more of that image,
then it will cut all what I selected, and after the cut, it will resize it back to 100×50
(just like photoshop does)

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

It seems as though you want both cropping and resizing combined into one action, correct?

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

@ Eric – that’s how I read the request, yes.

@ blue dragon -

the type of behavior you’re requesting is fine and all, but you really can’t expect a free plugin for a cms, that needs to be able to function on a wide range of machines and configurations – to replicate the behavior of a USD$1000 image editor.

I suspect that if this is mission critical functionality, then you commission the work to be done – but otherwise remember that most of the plugin devs are doing this voluntarily (and in most cases with little or no compensation), and it would be good to respect that fact.
