Add-On Type(s)



An ExpressionEngine plugin to resize, crop and cache images on the fly.

This plugin is very similar in function to the award-winning Image Sizer.

You must add the server and cache dir paths to the class variables in the plugin file, like so:

private $server_path  = '/site/root/folder';   // no trailing slash
private $cache_path  = '/site/root/folder/and/image/cache/';   // with trailing slash

Example Use:

    alt="Image description"}

I appreciate the effort, but the documentation has some conflicting guidance. I was able to install it on one site after quite a bit of testing. Not for beginners.

Its a great addon, especially for free! I had no trouble getting it to work in EE2.1.3 (sry, was an older EE site) but now Im running a (hacked) subdomain off that site, I can’t get ed resizer to find my images. Anyone got any ideas? I looked at John Peacocks fork, but yet to get my head round that.

Thanks for the nice plugin - I changed it up a bit and posted it at https://github.com/jpeacock/ED-Image-Resizer—-EE2-Add-On - it’s a little more portable using DOCUMENT_ROOT instead of hard-coding your server path.

I branched this add-on and added a parameter to allow non center cropping.  You can snag it here: https://github.com/SleepyBrett/ed.imageresizer.ee2_addon

Good, but as far as I can tell it does not support the zoom/cropping to fit a specific rectangle (it will either fit height or width).

Really easy to install and nice to use :) @eddiemachado: I found some notes here https://github.com/erskinedesign/ed.imageresizer.ee2_addon

I could not get this working and there are no docs to be found. Others seem to have done it, but some installation / troubleshooting docs would be extremely helpful.

Good solid add-on.

4 stars as when outputted a pre-formatted IMG tag it uses a relative URL and not a full URL (inc. domain) which can cause trouble when re-writing URLs.

I also agree with the comment below regarding HASH used for the filenames when resized – not ideal for image SEO

In defense of ED Imageresizer and it’s undeserved 1 star negative review below, I have to say… ‘don’t leave a negative review because you don’t understand how to install it’.

Image Sizer seems to have randomly stopped working for me so discovering this was good timing. Seems to work well but it spits out some nasty image file names which makes it unusable for me.

If you are having trouble installing the EE 2 version, make sure the plugin is in a folder called “ed_imageresizer” in the “third_party” folder.

Seems to be non-functional on EE2. Does not show up in list on Plugins admin page.

I have tried this on two different servers and even downloaded the latest versions and have been unable to get the ee2 version to work.

I tried posting on the EE forum and emailing glen. I’m sure it is amazing once I can get it to work.

Great plugin, I’ve been using “Image Sizer” but this seems to out-do that, and quite nicely at that. The link for the EE 2.0 version as of right now is incorrect though. The correct link is: http://github.com/erskinedesign/ed.imageresizer.ee2_addon     Thanks for your work Glen!

Really good plugin, been using “Image Sizer” for a long time but this has made it into my recent EE installs instead.

Very happy with the performance and ease of setup.

Q: Is there a way to have this PI generate grayscale images from your uploaded color images?

Have to agree with E. on this one.  I found that this plug-in had a much better compression and cache than Image Sizer thus making page loads faster.

Indeed similar to Image Sizer but with the added advantage of being able to crop images to sepcific sizes as well. Highly recommended!
