Terabyte Image Cropper

Note: This project is no-longer under active development. Consider using the now built in cropper.

A simple Image cropper with flexible validation.


  • Upload your JPG, if it's too big jCrop will appear so you can crop your image
  • Flexible Validation for dimesion, filesize, filename
  • Shrinks the raw image to fit your browser to make cropping very large images easy.
  • The uploaded image is cropped asynchronously in the edit page.
  • The uploaded 'raw' file is overwritten with the cropped file when you click 'crop'.

Regex validation is performed against a string of this format:
Therefore to validate the image is the correct size, use this regex:

Configuration (optional Web.Config entry)
<add key="ImageCropperIgnoreMissingFiles" value="false"/>

Known Issues & Limitations

  • Does not work with "Media"
  • Only works with .jpg files.
  • cropper fails to initialise if not on the 'loaded tab' see forum post[1] for details:
  • Only works with files in jpg format see forum post[1] for details
  • Has issues with some characters in the filenames, see forum post[2] for discussion.

Roadmap (wish list)
I'd like to add the option to fix one dimension of the crop and allow th user to select the other, eg: fixed width variable height.
