    Will this work on v7?

    if not, do you have plans to release a v7 version?

    Hi Zac,

    Perhaps an alternative to Waffel AutoCompress could be the ImageGen developed by Douglas Robar, this package is also developed for Umbraco 7, and can do automatically resize photos, screenshots, and images from icon to thumbnail to full-screen retina sizes.

    With ImageGen you have more than 30 options, ImageGen can create hundreds of thousands of variations to meet virtually any need.

    There are two different version of this package a free editon and a paid pro edition. So try to see if the ImageGen package could be a solution for you.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Zac,

    I dont know if this package is v7 compatible as I do very little Umbraco work nowdays (unfortunately). If the events API is still backwards compatible like it was in v6 I would think it should work.

    Dennis: ImageGen is superb for all your on-the-fly image generation/caching and should work fine with AutoCompress as all it does is downscale huge images on upload to save precious shared hosting space ;)

    Source for this package is out on GitHub if anyone wants to make a new version. If I were to make it again today I would look to for doing the dirty work. As of 7.1 this library is included in Umbraco.
