[DEV] ReIMG Image Resizer

A port-over of the popular MOD, the extension version of ReIMG brings the same functionality and extends on the previously existing image resizing features from the MOD while using the jQuery library included in 3.1.

Resizes user-posted images that are too large, optionally overlaying a zoom button to view the original-sized image (optionally in a lightbox).

Features:
  • Images are resized (downscaled) client-side using javascript.
  • Images don't first load in large format and then collapse, but instead appear only after they have been resized already. (Likely removing this "feature")
  • An optional zoom button is overlayed on top of resized images, so you can click to the original-sized image. This button will not mess up a URL the poster might have placed around the image. :)
  • The original-sized image can open in the current window, in a new window, or in a cool lightbox. 8-)
  • Only user-posted images posted using img BBCode or uploaded as attachment are resized.
  • You can specify the maximum dimensions in pixels (e.g. 640x480) and/or a maximum relative width (e.g. 80%).
  • All settings (maximum dimensions, zooming method) can be changed from the Administration Control Panel.
  • jQuery-optimized JavaScript

Hi

Very happy that the REIMG Extension for 3.1 is being worked on, it is a most useful feature.

Question - in the current version of the Extension there is no ability to set the maximum displayed image size; is this a feature you intend to implement?

Also an idea for future development. If the resizing could be achieved server side it would mean that the often overly large original image files would not have to be downloaded to the client, thus speeding up display when a lot of images are involved.

All the best

Colin

The maximum displayed image size setting was removed because phpBB already imposes a max image size. The setting might come back later but for now it's not present. As for resizing server side that's beyond the scope of the current ReIMG version (3.0) but is planned for the next (3.1). This last one has had a lengthy discussion over on phpbb.com so I've tried to gather enough information to implement. We'll see I guess. ;)

Hi David

I did not know this functionality exists in 3.1. thanks, but it does depend on having imagemagick installed, which on my server it is not, so I am hoping to persuade my ISP to install as I do not have root access to the server.

All the best

No it doesn't depend on Imagemagick. The image sizing phpBB 3.1 does for posted images (using the IMG tag) is through CSS using the max-width style property. Those types of posted images are not physically altered in any way. What could depend on Imagemagick might be what plupload does with uploaded images. Those get resized based on the board's file size settings, but I'm not too familiar with the inner workings of plupload to make that determination.

Hello I installed the extension, but I do not have the boxes maximum size and do not understand why.

Yes it is not at all ready for use, which is why it won't work if you try it. You'll actually get pop-up messages if you manage to get it working. You should just uninstall, delete data, and delete the extension directory. It will be a while before this is ready for use.

Nothing. This extension is not really installable so you can go ahead and delete it from your forum until there is an alpha or beta release.

Can I install this plugin in phpBB 3.1.6 directly?
I am not talking about extension. Just directly to make it work?
