Add-On Type(s)



Advanced Image Manipulation for EE5 and EE6

JCOGS Image is a simple to use tag based image processing add-on for ExpressionEngine 5 and 6. It is fast, efficient and provides a range of image manipulation options that go beyond those available within EE’s built in image processing services.

What does it do?

  • Image Format Conversion
    Change the image format used by an image. Currently the add-on supports png, jpg, gif, bmp and webp image formats.
  • Resizing
    Crop and resize images. Images can be resized to fit into a defined space (either contain or cover). Image cropping can use nominated aspect ratios and can be combined with rescaling. By default Image will preserve an image’s aspect ratio, but you can use resizing to distort an image if required.
  • Manipulations
    Apply a range of image effects to an image.  Current options include rotation, horizontal and / or vertical flips and the application of a range of image filters (e.g. greyscale, blur etc). Filters can be combined sequentially, and can be applied to converted / resized images. See the documentation for more details of the filters available.

Why choose JCOGS Image?

  • It is up to date!
    JCOGS Image has been tested on EE5 and EE6 installations and is compatible with php8.
  • Single Image or Batch Processing
    Use a template tag to modify a single image or to apply the same modifications to all the images within a content block - or a mix of the two since nesting JCOGS Image tags is supported.
  • Remote or Local Image Sources
    JCOGS Image works equally well with locally stored images or images obtained from internet based sources.
  • Flexible Caching Options
    JCOGS Image has a powerful SEO friendly caching system for the images it generates; cache options can be set globally and then overwritten on a tag-by-tag basis through parameter options.

“Drop-in” upgrades for sites using CE Image

JCOGS Image unlocks a simple upgrade path for existing EE5 and EE6 for sites developed using the CE-Img add-on.

Although based on a completely new image processing code base, JCOGS Image has been designed to have strong compatiblity with CE Image parameters and functions: in many cases it is possible to upgrade an existing site without loss of function simply doing a search / replace to update the tag name used: for example changing {exp:ce_img:single…} to {exp:jcogs_img:single…}.

Please Note: A few CE Image functions are not replicated (e.g. ASCIIart) and for some advanced uses (e.g. the pixelate filter) there are some small differences in the output produced. See the documentation for more details.


JCOGS Image has been tested and is supported for use on EE5 and EE6 systems. It requires the server hosting the EE installtion to be running php 7.3 (or better) and some version of the GD2 library.

Fully supported, ongoing development…

If you have features that you would like to see included in a future version of JCOGS Image get in touch! Currently in the development pipeline:

  • One-click updates for CE Img tags
  • Auto-generation of <picture> HTML tags e.g to automatically provide alternate (srcset) images for high resolution or .webp images
  • Better support for php image processing libraries (e.g. Imagemagick)
