    Image cropper when picking - does it exist already?

    We need to crop when selecting image. This because we need different crops on each use without uploading images to content.

    The perfect way would be that you upload your media to media section and WHEN you PICK the image from content - you get to specify your crop. So in this case it's actually the picker datatype which "should" have the crop definitions and UI of the the new image cropper.

    What puzzles me is that I think I've seen that somewhere?

    I found this http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-6223

    Hi Jesper,

    Maybe you can do some experiments with the grid. There you can select an image and after selecting it you can crop the image. The image path and crop data is stored in the grid.

    So maybe a grid where you can you only select the image?

    Also see this post: https://our.umbraco.org/forum/umbraco-7/using-umbraco-7/63252-How-to-crop-images-within-Grid-Layout#comment-213072

    Thanks for that pointer, Breuer. Interesting workaround with grid. I really hope theres something else out there :)

    Wouldn't that kind of defeat the original purpose of the cropper functionality?

    I believe the idea was that you could upload one image and then let the designer pick the best crop for the view.

    Hi Jannik,

    Thats a well known scenario and that should certainly not be replaced / removed.

    My idea is to allow for another scenario where we let a content editor use the exact same cropping methods (ux wise) to select the crop they want when selecting the image (picker).

    Surely not suitable for all situations.

    Yeah, just wanted to make sure we were on the same page about what to reasonably expect from the original cropper :-)
