I am making a website for a client. When the website is done, the client wants to be able to remove and add their own images to the website. They want the adding of the images to be as less time consuming as possible.
As I see it there is already a feature in C5 that allows the images to be resized but the images still need to be cropped in order for them to look good. So here goes my question:
What would be the best (fast and simple) way for the client to add their image, resize and crop it?
Thanks in advance.
However, when I click edit I get the following error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in C:\xampp\htdocs\concrete\concrete\elements\files\edit\image.php on line 42
Is there any way to fix this?
If you're using an image gallery addon, there's usually a width and height setting that you can enter to apply to the entire gallery -- again, I think the best thing is to figure out what the best width is and tell your client to use that number.
Not a perfect solution, but hopefully gets you a little farther along.
It's always worked peachy keen for me. The only issue I've encountered is that the thumbnail on the file manager page doesn't update when the dialog window is closed after editing.
I mean, it isn't Photoshop, but it works for crop and scale. :-)
Hopefully one day we can get a cropping helper in the system (remember that other thread from a few weeks back?). I'm currently working on another project that needs this so ideally when that's done I can roll it into a more generalizable helper and replace that infernal "Edit" command in the file manager popup once and for all. Bwa-ha-ha!! [okay it's getting late]
