Re: Multiple image handling: profiles

I am a bit baffled about the stance here, I must admit – I get that there’s a need for optimisation…but how did we get from “much better image handling” to “farming out files to and fro to an optimisation-as-a-service platform” so quickly?

I do not know any similar desktop app.

There’s ImageOptim if you have a Mac: imageoptim.com/mac and some alternatives if you don’t.

Edit: oh, and there are command line versions of ImageMagick and GD so if you can get the settings you want then perhaps that might be worth a try?

Re: Multiple image handling: profiles

I have FileOptimizer app mentioned there, and PngQuant as a plugin — far to Tinify, do not worth attention. I am afraid ImageOptim, too.

Re: Multiple image handling: profiles

OK, so we’ve covered optimisation now. Going back to the image handling, I think we have a pretty clear route forward – thanks everyone!

Re: Multiple image handling: profiles

Been playing with some layout for potential new editing features that would be possible in the image manipulation libraries we are thinking of using: design-patterns.textpattern.com/mockups/secondary/content-image_edit-proposal.html

Nice! And much needed. 👍

One thing that could be useful is to mark the focal point of an image when using it with object-fit. Perhaps that’s plugin-territory, but it should be addable.

Re: Multiple image handling: profiles

Focal point cropping is available in the tool we are hoping to use. Not sure that is exactly what you mean though.

They use the same suite of tools in Statamic.

Re: Multiple image handling: profiles

Ah, I meant object-position: See this css-tricks articles. It allows you to specify where the centre point of the image should be when using a responsive container not of the same aspect ratio as the image.

Re: Multiple image handling: profiles

That’s a presentational item – not really part of the content – so I doubt it (not in core anyway).

Re: Multiple image handling: profiles

Some CMSes (don’t have an example to hand) have a crosshair that you place on the image and saves the focal point with the image data.

Yes, that may be plugin territory. It would entail adding a crosshair button and the corresponding position marked on the image.

Re: Multiple image handling: profiles

Our content is totally abstracted from presentation (CSS), so I’m unsure how you could achieve that within our model (apart from via inline styles which I want to avoid).
