If you want to reduce the file size of images uploaded to your Umbraco website, then this is the package for you. You can set a maximum width and height, this package will replace the original image with a smaller cropped version. It also allows you to create another crop of the image, perhaps a smaller preview size image.

To use this in your Umbraco website, the best way to install it is using NuGet:

Install-Package SmallerImages

Then just add these app settings to your web.config file and edit the values accordingly:

<add key="ImageResizeWidth" value="1920" />
<add key="ImageResizeHeight" value="1080" />
<add key="ImageResizeSuffix" value="1080p" />
<add key="ImageResizeKeepOriginal" value="false" />
<add key="ImageResizeUpscale" value="false" />
<add key="ImageResizePreviewWidth" value="240" />
<add key="ImageResizePreviewHeight" value="136" />
<add key="ImageResizePreviewSuffix" value="_preview" />
<add key="ImageResizeMaintainRatio" value="false" />
<add key="ImageResizeApplyToExistingImages" value="true" />


  • Does it work with existing images?

    Yes it does, you can enable it by setting this appSetting value to true

    <add key="ImageResizeApplyToExistingImages" value="true" />
  • How do I turn off the preview image crop?

    Change these config settings to the values as they are below:

    <add key="ImageResizePreviewWidth" value="0" />
    <add key="ImageResizePreviewHeight" value="0" />
    <add key="ImageResizePreviewSuffix" value="" />
  • What happens to the original image?

    It's completely up to you. If you don't want to keep it you can set this value to false, otherwise set it to true.

    <add key="ImageResizeKeepOriginal" value="false" />
