Croppable Image 3

Recommended Posts

Thanks a lot for your reply.  This is the result:

1033 
 news->name

headline

Pageimage

The error was probably because I had never before created a new field with the fieldtyp CroppableImage3. Because I already had some images fields, I have only changed the input field type of the existing fields and not created a new one. After I had created a test field with the fieldtyp CroppableImage3, the other fields now work as desired.

If you want to give the user the possibility to choose from different formats for one single place, you need a special setup with e.g. pagetable or the ProFields Repeater Matrix wrapped around the image field.

Hi Horst,

I've wrapped a repeater around my image and bullet selection (The user can thus choose which cropping to use). It works when I upload an image for the first time, it creates 4 standard croppings (panorama, portrait, etc.). However, if I make a custom cropping it doesn't save it. I'd actually want the custom cropping to overwrite other files, but that doesn't work either. 

Is there a known issue between croppable image 3 and repeaters? Should i use ProFields Repeater Matrix (haven't tried it so far). Pagetable is also a possibility, but not as intuitive and fast as a repeater.

Thanks for your help!

David

I'm not aware of any issues with repeaters or repeater-matrix. (Repeater-Matrix would do no change, I believe, as it somehow extends repeater)

Custom cropping is made for which user / role. Does he have the right permission added to his role?

I tested even without the repeater and I get similar errors. So I think we can leave the repeaters out of it. Permissions are OK.

I tried to recreate the issue (can't tell yet exactly when it works and when not). 

I created 4 cropping-presets. These create the 4 croppings automatically. So far ok. When the user (whichever) creates a custom cropping, the new cropping doesn't overwrite the old one. Or I should rather say, sometimes it does, but most of the times it doesn't.

Workaround is to delete the generated croppings in the "variations" window prior to creating a custom one. This works, but it's not a nice solution for the end user.

Am I the first one reporting this bug?

Thanks.

I wouldn't consider it a bug of the croppable image module, as this seems to be only at your server (setup).

Please provide the exact reproducable steps you have done, incl. installing and configuring the module. (You may try this by yourself in a test account, and if this behaves as you described, tell us the steps here, so that we will be able to reproduce it.)

What does "Permisions ar OK" mean, exactly?

Or directly use the markup srcset module from @tpr and only pass the master to it!

Just tried this and it works:

<img <?php echo $page->portfolio_images->first()->getCrop('portfolio-item')->srcset('portfolio-item'); ?> class="lazyload" alt="">

This was the first time I added CroppableImage to a project and it seems great. Some UI facelift here and there could be beneficial though :)

Could it be that for square image crops, only width to add, and use that for the height too?

No, it should work with whatever PW accepts via installed ImageRenderingEngine-Modules.

Your Image is black. How work this image out with api rendered image variations? What is the source image type(s)? Is it with all images, regardless of type / format?

HI,

Has anyone encountered quality issues with the croppable module? 

I know I'm very picky when it comes to image quality, but I'm getting pretty bad results and I'm wondering what i can do about it. I've tried no sharpening, sharpening soft, quality 90 and 80, but the images still look "pixelated", specially in the diagonals. 

See screenshot attached. Original left, cropping on the right.

CroppableImages uses the core images rendering engines. So there is no special "Croppable image rendering".

Your original image left is very blurry, and the one on the right site is much to much sharpened. Please try a variation with sharpening soft or none.

Yes, I'm aware of that. That's my issue. That's what I get with sharpening set on SOFT. 

Are the core rendering engines just not that good?

Hi, does anyone know if this works with @kongondo's Media Manager? 

Edit: having just bought the media manager, pretty sure there's no clear way to make them play nice together.

Based on my experiences with

  • several thousand images of mine,
  • several thousand images of my customers
  • and many image variations from many sites around the world (from the showcase directory),

I can say: The core rendering engines seem to do a pretty good job !  ^-^:lol::ph34r:

But that are just my experiences. ;)

Just upgraded to PW 3.043 dev and getCrop() doesn't seem to work (returns NULL). Downgraded to 3.042 and no issues.

I've downloaded a fresh copy of both PW versions so 3.043 should contain Ryan's fix too.

Anyone having the same issue?

I have upgraded a site yesterday too. Here everything is working as expected. With both, existing and new created images.

(PW 3.0.39 to 3.0.43)

I was hoping the opposite :) Not sure what's going on here.

I'm not sure if this is the intended functionality: 

When I click to edit a crop under 'predefined Crops', the overlaid 'marquee' always reverts to the far top left of the image, even when I move it around and click 'Crop and go'.

I know the crop has saved correctly because I can hover the button and see a thumbnail appear.

This is not intended, but its previous state is only saved for jpegs, not for png or gif formats.

      Cacheable Placeholders
      This module allows you to have pieces of dynamic content inside cached output. This aims to solve the common problem of having a mostly cacheable site, but with pieces of dynamic output here and there.  Consider this simple example, where you want to output a custom greeting to the current user:
      <h1>Good morning, <?= ucfirst($user->name) ?></h1> This snippet means you can't use the template cache (at least for logged-in users), because each user has a different name. Even if 99% of your output is static, you can only cache the pieces that you know won't include this personal greeting. A more common example would be CSRF tokens for HTML forms - those need to be unique by definition, so you can't cache the form wholesale.
      This module solves this problem by introducing cacheable placeholders - small placeholder tokens that get replaced during every request. The replacement is done inside a Page::render hook so it runs during every request, even if the response is served from the template cache. So you can use something like this:
      <h1>Good morning, {{{greeting}}}</h1> Replacement tokens are defined with a callback function that produces the appropriate output and added to the module through a simple hook:
      // site/ready.php wire()->addHookAfter('CachePlaceholders::getTokens', function (HookEvent $e) { $tokens = $e->return; $tokens['greeting'] = [ 'callback' => function (array $tokenData) { return ucfirst(wire('user')->name); } ]; $e->return = $tokens; }); Tokens can also include parameters that are parsed and passed to the callback function. There are more fully annotated examples and step-by-step instructions in the README on Github!
      Features
      A simple and fast token parser that calls the appropriate callback and runs automatically. Tokens may include multiple named or positional parameters, as well as multi-value parameters. A manual mode that allows you to replace tokens in custom pieces of cached content (useful if you're using the $cache API). Some built-in tokens for common use-cases: CSRF-Tokens, replacing values from superglobals and producing random hexadecimal strings. The token format is completely customizable, all delimiters can be changed to avoid collisions with existing tag parsers or template languages. Links

      This is a lightweight alternative to other newsletter & newsletter-subscription modules.
      You can find the Module in the Modules directory and on Github
      It can subscribe, update, unsubscribe & delete a user in a list in Mailchimp with MailChimp API 3.0. It does not provide any forms or validation, so you can feel free to use your own. To protect your users, it does not save any user data in logs or sends them to an admin.
      This module fits your needs if you...
      ...use Mailchimp as your newsletter / email-automation tool ...want to let users subscribe to your newsletter on your website ...want to use your own form, validation and messages (with or without the wire forms) ...don't want any personal user data saved in any way in your ProcessWire environment (cf. EU data regulation terms) ...like to subscribe, update, unsubscribe or delete users to/from different lists ...like the Mailchimp UI for creating / sending / reviewing email campaigns *I have only tested it with PHP 7.x so far, so use on owners risk
      EDIT:
      Since 0.0.4, instructions and changelog can be found in the README only. You can find it here  🙂
      If you have questions or like to contribute, just post a reply or create an issue or pr on github, thanks!

      Sorry for the convoluted title. I have a problem with Process modules that define a custom page using the page key through getModuleInfo (as demonstrated in this excellent tutorial by @bernhard). Those pages are created automatically when the module is installed. The problem is that the title of the page only gets set in the current language. That's not a problem if the current language (language of the superuser who is installing the module) is the default language; if it isn't, the Process page is missing a title in the default language. This has the very awkward effect that a user using the backend in the default language (or any other language) will see an empty entry in the setup menu:

      This screenshot comes from my Cache Control module which includes a Process page. Now I realize the description sounds obscure, but for us it's a common setup: We a multiple bilingual sites where the default language is German and the second language is English. While the clients use the CMS in German, as a developer I prefer the English interface, so whenever I install a Process module I get this problem.
      As a module author, is there a way to handle this situation? I guess it would be possible to use post-installation hooks or create the pages manually, but I very much prefer the declarative approach. The page title is already translatable (through the __ function), but of course at the time of installation there is no translation, and as far as I'm aware it's not possible to ship translations with a module so they are used automatically. Could this situation be handled better in the core? I would prefer if the module installation process would always set the title of the Process page in the default language, instead of the language of the current user.
