    Does ImageGen Allow Plugins?

    Not a bug per se...

    I would like to extend image gen to do stuff it does not.

    The reason I ask is that I've created an ashx component I reference from my umbraco pages that will turn your image into a circle, pie, rounded corner rectangle, add shadows of any color, create a torn page effect, create a gradient of any number of colors etc etc..

    I'm using GDI to do this and the result is VERY clean. No jaggies etc...

    For example see

    Is there a way to create plug-ins to image gen... ? I think it would rock. I was thinking you could create custom XML effects files to create your own effects - I think everyone would go ballistic with this....

    Anyways... let me know what you think.

    Sorry, no plugin api. It's an interesting idea, though and might be worth considering.

    You might be able to cascade your tool and mine by setting the ?image= flag of your querystring to be the call to ImageGen. I'm not sure if that would work but it would be a very fast way of getting resizing, cropping, watermarks, etc. to add your feature set to ImageGen even without a plugin api. Let us know if you can get that working.
