    ImageGen on another platform

    Hi,

    This is a wierd question I know, but my client insisted on a DynamicWeb solution, but now he is complaining about the loadtime of the images. We are using DW version of a ImageGen (getimage.aspx), but the execution time can be of to 3 seconds for one image. 

    I would really love to try the ImageGen version, but I dont know if it is possible to implement it on a none-umbraco page (God shall know that this is not with my good will, but I have a client who isn't happy)

    We need the crop funktion, so we would have to buy a license, so the question is also If that is possible!? :-)

    Regards, 

    Peter
    Umbraco Fan and not DW Fan!!

    Hi Peter,

    ImageGen can be run outside of Umbraco.  It's essentially just a .NET HTTP handler, so it should be able to run pretty easily in any .NET project.

    Yeah, I thought so, so all I need is the imagegen file and the dll file aswell.

    But how about the all the ImageGen.config stuff. Can it easily be added to the web.config instead? :)

    /Peter

    Hi, Peter,

    No problem at all using ImageGen on non-Umbraco sites... it will run on any .net site just fine.

    You'd follow the 'manual installation' steps noted in the documentation. You can put the imagegen.config file anywhere you like just be sure the line in the web.config points to its actual location (it would be in ~/config/imagegen.config in an umbraco site so that's what the docs talk about but you can put it wherever you like... even incorporate the settings into the web.config you really want to).

    Once the files are installed and the two imagegen entries are in the web.config you'd use it just like always.

    Enjoy!

    cheers,
    doug.

    Super. I will try that, and see to buy a license if I can make it work and the speed improves :-) 

    Thank

    /Peter

    Haha no worries.

    You can test out all the Pro features without a domain key if you're running it on localhost or any *.local domain -- the Pro features are always enabled on those hostnames/domains.

    cheers,
