Create beautiful images, the right size every time!

Ansel solves the age old problem, how can I constrain images to fit within any given context, make sure they meet minimum and maximum requirements, and still find the part of the image that is relevant?

Ansel solves this problem by allowing image fields to have minimum and/or maximum requirements, aspect ratio, minimum and maximum number of image, and more. Then when editing entries, content managers can use the lasso to select the portion of the image they want within the defined constraints.

Ansel works great with ExpressionEngine natively. But now if you’re looking to store Ansel files on a CDN, S3, SFTP, and/or FTP, you can get Ansel & Treasury together in one bundle for a discounted price! Head over here to purchase the bundle.

I’ve just installed Ansel to have a play with it, and I reckon this is an invaluable tool for your EE toolbox to give you an amazing amount of control with generate images. And it’s got Low Variables support which deserves 6 stars!

This will go in every new site build. Hands down the best way to give clients the control they need to pick and crop the right images. It lets me set minimum dimensions required by the design to ensure they upload large enough images, and even handles the resizing on the front-end.

If you care about images, use this great add-on. Your clients will love this. Image cropping is hard to learn for most clients, but with this add-on it is a breeze. They can’t do anything wrong.

For the client who needs to visualise everything, to the online store that needs specifics, Ansel is a pretty handy tool, and one I will be using quite a bit of.
