    Image Cropper Automation

    Is there any easy way to generate cropped thumbs for a batch of images with the standard umbraco Image Cropper?

    Just uploaded approx 300 images, do I have to open each and every one of them and click save in order to generate the thumb or has anyone knowledge of a workaround or script to do it?

    best regards Sune

    Hi Fengelz

    I'd say you have a couple of options.

    1) Add prevalues to the "upload" data type of the desired thumbnails sizes, then when you upload a file, it will auto generate thumbnails for you to fit within those dimensions

    2) Use @drobars ImageGen (http://our.umbraco.org/projects/website-utilities/imagegen) to generate the thumbnails on the fly. When imagegen creates the images, it also creates a cached version on disc to keep things responsive.

    Hopefully one of these will be of some help to you.

    Cheers

    Thanks Matt.

    As much as I wanna support Drobar, unfortunately I dont think this specific assignment allows me to purchas a license for this task.

    I see what you mean with the upload field. I'll try that solution.

    Hi Fengelz.

    I'd still check out ImageGen as it does come as a limited free product, and you only need a license for the more advanced features. Check out the docs and see if the features you need are in the free version.
