    Advice - Image Cropper and Image Gen

    Seems like there is some overlap between the two and I get a bit fuzzy sometimes. While imagegen is more of a "backend" dev tool, and image cropper is geared towards editors and allows for intelligent cropping with focal points - where does everyone see these fitting in?

    Will there at one point be a solution in the core that consolidates all features and makes imagegen obsolete for all but the more advanced features?

    In the current state, how do you use these two features/packages for your development? What do you consider best practices?

    Hi Steve,

    There already is. The image cropper actually uses a library called ImageProcessor to perform the crops. This has a huge range of functionality that included pluggable processors, caching systems, a fluent api for performing code driven imaging operations and a whole lot more.

    You can find the documentation for that here. http://imageprocessor.org

    Cheers

    James

    I'll have to dig through the image processor docs then. So are you saying that I should not be using image gen at all on U7 projects?

    I would recommend against mixing the two libraries as you will find on occasion that one will attempt to intercept calls directed at another.

    If there's a bit of functionality that ImageGen has that you feel ImageProcessor requires then let me know and I'll see if it's feasible to add it.
