Create Blurhash Strings during image upload
ImageBlurhash is a module for ProcessWire CMS which automatically generates Blurhash strings for uploaded images.
What is Blurhash?
BlurHash is a compact representation of a placeholder for an image. E.g. used for lazy loading placeholders.
More about Blurhash itself:
- Execute the following command in the root directory of your ProcessWire installation:
composer require blue-tomato/image-blurhash
- ProcessWire will detect the module and list it in the backend's
ImageBlurhashsection. Navigate there and install it.
Activate Blurhash in the field setting of the image:
Generate Blurhash Strings
Return's the encoded Blurhash as string or false if not existing
$page->image_field->getBlurhashDataUri(float $width, float $height)
<img src="$page->image_field->getBlurhashDataUri(500, 300)" alt="" data-lazy="$page->image_field->size(500, 300)" />
Returns the decoded Blurhash as base64 PNG datauri for usage in an image. If not existing transparent GIF image will be returned.
Hint: If your image is 500x300 pixels, you can use 50x30 for the Blurhash Data-URI and and scale up the image with CSS. This makes Blurhash decoding faster, the data-uri smaller but the quality is still good.
Migration of existing images
For migration of existing fields there are two CLI script in the module directory
Generates for all image fields who have the createBlurhash option new Blurhashs.
Generates for all image fields who have the createBlurhash option and have no Blurhash in the database a new Blurhash.
Currently encoding component quality default to 4x3. In the future this value will be configurable over the field settings for each field.
