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

One more bonus:

Have image editing tools at your disposal right from the start while uploading images!
Requires adding one line of JS to textpattern.js because ebl_image_edit isn’t loaded in the moment we’d need it. Hence we’ll lend it a hand.

Look for the very last }); in textpattern.js and replace with:

	if((!$('#eblcropui').length)&&($('body#page-image').length)){$("body").append("<script>$(document).ready(function(){{var a=$('.fullsize-image > .content-image').attr('title');imageid=a.replace(/(.*)\\.[jpg|jpeg|gif|png].*/,'$1');window.location='index.php?event=image&step=image_edit&id='+imageid+''}});<\/script>");}

});

(Don’t forget to copy that pair of closing brackets at the end of the snippet!)
Redirects to the image’s edit page where ebl is waiting and ready. Edit: Note that this snippet must be deactivated when ebl_image_edit is uninstalled/deactivated, or it will leave the image edit panel inaccessible. For that reason alone:
I’d love to have that working from within the plugin, at some point :]

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

At the moment I’m editing this plugin in order to spackle the last kinks for a re-release (e.g. Resize thumbnail will use the dropdown menu’s values if desired, no need any longer to fill in additional scaling values.)

I’m puzzling, however, over the “Lock aspect ratio” checkbox, thinking of removing it entirely (the checkbox, not the locking). The only thing this checkbox seems to do is maintaining the cropping frame’s aspect ratio while you drag its handles, it doesn’t seem to have an effect, though, on the thumbnail created. Like that, it only adds to the visual noise but is pretty much useless per se, as we can always select “Custom” from the dropdown menu and knead a cropping frame like we need it.

All: Is there a reasonable use case for unchecking “Lock aspect ratio” while having selected one of the preset thumbnail measures?

Lock aspect ratio for thumbnails maintains the same relative image proportions between the thumbnail and the original image.

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

Does that mean it potentially squishes resulting thumbnails should I deactivate it and apply a square cropping area on a rectangular image? Although I tested til my eyeballs popped out: I couldn’t find it had any such effect, in whatever checkbox/menu combo.
Hence my question, which should have actually been: Is there a reasonable use case for unchecking “Lock aspect ratio” while having selected one of the preset thumbnail measures? (Now edited above.)

My guess is: I could simply hide this checkbox because you programmed the expected behavior for it, disabled it for the “Custom” menu entry and re-enabled it for every menu entry else. Even if hidden, it would work like everyone expects it to.

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

Thank you all who have made this happen (eric, uli, mrdale). This is one of the plugins I almost always use – customers really like the ease of image handling.

This reborn plugin may deserve its own thread in the future… it is no longer an orphan.

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

This plugin is somehow at war with large images, memory sided already (still to be detected where this comes from), but also because the crop area depends on pixel values. That’s the reason why the image must not be compressed by CSS rules. Hence tip 1: Remove/overwrite any of Phil’s rules that might display the main image smaller than it actually is. For Hive, overwrite .fullsize-image img, setting max-width: none;, for the other themes the selector may vary.

Tip 2: I just installed this plugin and found the cropping area horizontally distorted. As this didn’t happen before on a vanilla install, I guess it’s been my fault, Edit: Yup, somehow used the old jcrop css file. some well-intentioned edits of the admin CSS. But maybe ebl_ie doesn’t like Remora (I’m always using it on Hive so far). Anyway, should you observe something similar, here’s the CSS that cured my problems after putting it at the bottom of classic/textpattern.css:

.jcrop-holder .content-image  {
   padding: 0;
   border: 0;
   border-radius: 0;
   }
.jcrop-holder div div img {
   max-width: none;
   }

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

Thanks Marco,
but unfortunately it doesn’t work good for me on TXP 4.5.5,
it does crop, but not the area you selected and both the predefined sizes and lock aspect ratio are not working at all.

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

Marco, to fix the issue that it does not crop the right selected area when using big photos there is a need to overwrite the main TXP CSS like this:

#page-image .txp-body,
#page-image .fullsize-image img {
	max-width: none;
}

but that still doesn’t solve the two other problems of the predefined sizes and lock aspect ratio.
