Is this package compatible with 6.1.6? Tried changing the credentials file according to older posts but cant save the file.
I noticed that the checkbox about using credentials is removed. Is it always using the credentials file or can I switch it on somehow?
We have it working on some of our Installations I think.
What does your crossbrowser xml look like?
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "www.adobe.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">
<allow-access-from domain="*.pixlr.com" />
<allow-http-request-headers-from domain="*.pixlr.com" headers="*" secure="true"/>
Did the xml look ok, Jan? Or do you know anywhere else I can search for errors?
Yes, the XML does look fine to me...can't remember what else there is to check.
Don't know if the /app_data/logs reveals anything perhaps?
Its always using credentials now yes. To see if the crossdomain.xml file is the problem, you could try with this version here http://pixlr.com/crossdomain.xml Be aware that it opens for all domains, not just pixlr.com, so just test with it.
I tested the xml file but now difference. I've checked the permissions on the site and theres no problems there.
Alright. I just tried with a Umbraco v6.1.1 and Pixlr just keeps saving without ever getting back to Umbraco. Seems like the same problem.
I am in the process of updating Pixlr to 7+ AngularJS. I might look into 6 as well, but not just yet.
Are there any updates about this issue? We're having the same problems with Pixlr not saving the files in Umbraco 6. We cannot upgrade to 7 at the moment for this site, so I'd like to keep using pixlr for image editing in U6.
Thanks and regards, Rody
It looks like the popup window that Pixlr used to show the editor, has been dropped. I am quite sure that it would work if instead of the old popup, it used the new editor overlay http://developer.pixlr.com/
I am in the process of testing the new Pixlr version for Umbraco 7. I will not start work on another for version 6 right away. But the source code is there and I will gladly answer questions :)
Great to hear 7 support is in the works. Any beta/test that you can share? Would be more than happy to test it out on 7.1.0, 7.1.4 and 7.2
That would be very helpful thank you. You can download a beta version here http://betafirm.com/Pixlr_2.beta.zip ;
I have tested it on
and its working smooth out-of-the-box; i.e no messing with crossdomain etc. Image gets updated without refresh.. Very impressive!
One question would be are you planning to add Save as different file option that was present in v6?
Glad to hear that its working.
I had thought about adding the "Save as new" function, but I wasn't sure how used it was. So I might :)
We were using "Save as" very heavily, as it allowed to really stay away from photoshop and process multiple images (like more advanced form of image crop, creating section from image like with overlay for slider etc.) from one main source.
Personally I would say its a great feature to have, not sure what others would say..
That "I might" sounds ohh so good! : )
Hi again Bjorn
I have been testing the beta in numerous situations and it seems to work pretty well out-of-the-box.
Recently I came across the blog posting about the, now built-in, Image Cropper at https://umbraco.com/follow-us/blog-archive/2014/5/30/developing-a-website-with-responsive-images-using-the-umbraco-v714-image-cropper.aspx
Obviously when the image file type upload field is changed to image cropper Pixlr wont work as cropper keeps JSON. Cant help but think if you have any plans for adding support for it, that would be the ultimate tool - processing high-res image in Pixlr (levels,hue etc.) and then using cropper to get different dimension crops within the entire site.. We were kingdoing this with old cropper and DAMP with Pixlr integrated pre-7 and just thought I should ask if this is a viable option to have, moving forward with v7.
Thanks for testing. That's very useful.
I agree. Cropper and Pixlr does sound like a powerful combination. However with very limited time on my hand for maintaining the Pixlr package, it is unlikely that I will get around doing anyting really time consuming.
But as always, anyone reading this is welcome to contribute (expand/fork/whatever) :)
Thanks for the update Bjorn. Cropper&Pixlr ...well I'll continue to dream about it for a while I guess.
Do you think you'll be able to add 'save as' support for the upcoming release?
All the best!
Yes "Save as" is on the list. Just when that will be I don't know, but shouldn't be too far away.
I'm also having problems with the Pixlr option that DAMP has. When you try to save it won't go back to the Umbraco office afterwards. Do you have the source of the v7 version that's working and was it a lot of work to fix the problem? For DAMP I'm not going to rebuild everything. I just want to make it work again so I hope you can help me.
We've had this problem also. A college of mine made the changes to DAMP a couple of weeks ago to solve this issue. The problem was the API of Pixlr, which changed somewhat. He created a codeplex fork and pull request for DAMP, so if all is good you can find it there.
The link to the fork/pull request is: https://damp.codeplex.com/SourceControl/network/forks/MCollard/FixSavePixlr/contribution/7171
Yup the Pixlr made som changes to their API.
@Jeroen if you want the source for the Umbraco Pixlr 7 version just let me know.
@Rody I've added MCollard as a developer so he can merge the pull request himself.
@Bjørn I'll first test if the pull request works so I don't need the v7 source code yet, but thanks :-).
@Rody I've tested the pull request and Pixlr is working again so thank you and your college :-). The pull request is now merged into the default branch.
Where can I get the beta for U7 from? It's not working on this link -- http://betafirm.com/Pixlr_2.beta.zip
The link works for me :)
Ha! It is now. Promise it was returning a 404 earlier!
Thanks very much
Aces! If you care to drop a post how it works/doesn't work I will be most happy : )
Happily using the beta on 7.1.4. Unless Im missing something its good as a release.
How is the "save as" feature coming along?
I haven't had the time to look into it yet. I am afraid it's not right around corner.
I've just installed and it works fine in standard mode. In express mode no button appears to open the editor.
Unless my memory serves me wrong, you're not supposed to have the option to use Express mode.
Is there any change in Pixlr API or the v7 beta? The saving was working perfectly fine and it stopped working recently.
I have even downloaded the crossdomain.xml file (previously i didnt even have this in the root folder of v7 and save worked fine.
The one i downloaded is http://pixlr.com/crossdomain.xml
and it doesnt seem to help, loading is ok but it goes to indefinite Saving...
I have the same problem when I try to save. I have opened a support ticket with Pixlr. Hopefully they can shine some light on it.
I will report back here once I know more.
Thanks for the update Bjorn. Looking forward, hopefully a glitch not an API change or major.
Fast reply from the Pixlr support. They are aware of the problem and of the effect it is having.
They don't have a date scheduled for a fix, but they will report back when they do fix it.
Not much we can do I am afraid :\
Thanks for the update. Did they mention what/why is not working anymore?
Visited their website to look for a status or 'issues' page but coudlnt locate it.
Nope he didn't :\ I am surprised as well that they haven't made any notice of it on their website, blog or twitter.
The Pixlr API is working again.
Great to know its fixed at Pixlr end.
Is this updated to the package yet? I just installed and tried the package on Umbraco 6.1.6 and its seems still not working.
DAMP package is also having same problem.
Thanks for the update Bjorn. Its back online!
Hi Anz, I have just tested it and it works. The issue (i believe) was with Pixlr side not package itself - since i didnt do any update. Running the v7 beta fyi
Bjorn, did they tell what was the issue or unknown?
Nope they didn't tell what broke the API.
Bjørn - any plans to support 6.x version?
No not really, but the souce code to both pre v. 6 and now v. 7 (beta) is available if you want to have go at it.
Thanks Bjørn. I got it working with DAMP.
Hi Anz, having same issue with 6.x version of Umbraco. Images not getting saved after edit in Pixlr. Any info on how you managed to solve the problem?
I'm also very curious how you fixed this. I updated to the latest version of DAMP, but still can't save in Pixlr unfortunately... Would be very happy to know how you did it! :-)
Did you update to the lastest version of DAMP on CodePlex? http://damp.codeplex.com/SourceControl/list/changesets
Yes, I've the updated the package to DAMP 2.8
It's not fixed in DAMP 2.8. There is a changeset on codeplex with the fix that's not released yet. You need to download the souce code and build it yourself to get the fix.
Yeay, that helped! Thanks :-)
I made a copy of Decode_Umb_Pixlr_v1_3_1_source with the fix from DAMP in Codeplex:
is working on a reply...
