First up, a massive thanks to Ryan, the developers and community on this great CMS.

We have spent the last 4 weeks looking at the best option for a client and it looks like ProcessWire will be the choice. We ignored the top 3 (Drupal, Joomla, WordPress) but spent a lot of time with Grav, Hugo, Concrete5, October and PimCore before we arrived here. I am not saying some of these are not great as well, but sometimes the best CMS is the one that matches your needs the most.

I can't tell you how much of a pleasure it was to find your CMS and community :-)

So, one of the things we have seen that our client likes a lot is how many other systems handle Image and Asset Library. They like to be able to upload many 1000's of images, PDF's that get used on many different Pages. Content Editors can quickly find images from a tree/directory/tag structure and Drag and Drop over onto their pages.

My question is anything like this on the roadmap ?

If not, then does anyone in the community have a pointers or ideas on best practise to implement this ( a module? ) or is it something ( a use case ) that does not sit well with the way Processwire wants to be architected?

Again, fantastic work folks, we are really enjoying Processwire and looking forward to looking at the ProDrafts & ProForms modules as well in a few weeks.

Welcome to ProcessWire and the forums @swampmusic,

You have two options. Media Library is a free module and Media Manager a commercial module (easily handles all sorts of media assets using a centralised approach; full disclaimer; I am the author of this module :)).

Oh, I think you meant Ryan, not Rory ;).

Can either of the Media Managers be used to give members permission to create their own galleries?  Possibly choose which Roles are allocated how much disk space for their photos?

 

thanks,

Ray

Media Manager has a setting to allow users to only see the media they uploaded. It has no other finer controls (roles, etc).

      I have a "strange" issue with my dev set up, that I just noticed today. I set up an image field named "dev_gallery" and checked the "use tags" option when setting it up. I went to add a couple image to the field, and noticed that the tags option is not displaying at all for the image. Currently, the description field is the only current field on image edit. Have I missed a basic setting to enable this?
       
      I am currently using PW 3.0.62 as well.

      Hello dear community
      I have a problem with a front edit possibility inside a OWL gallery.
      The thing is, normally you do a double click to edit something directly on a page.
      In my case a single click opens up a picture inside a gallery, so I can't "hit" the editing.

         
                           <div class="demo-gallery">                             <ul id="lightgallery2" class="list-unstyled row">                                 <li class="img-md-12 mb-12 mb-sm-12 mb-md-12 mb-lg-12 mb-xl-12 col-12 col-md-12 img-fluid full-height" data-responsive="" data-src="<? echo $page->page_home_owl_00_img->url; ?>" data-sub-html="<h4><? echo $page->page_home_owl_00_h4; ?></h4><p><? echo $page->page_home_owl_00_p; ?></p>">                                     <a href="">                                         <img class="img-responsive" src="<? echo $page->page_home_owl_00_img->url; ?>">                                     </a>                                 </li>                                                                  <? foreach($page->children('template=9dk-owl-home') as $item): ?>                                 <li class="img-md-6 mb-3 mb-sm-3 mb-md-3 mb-lg-3 mb-xl-3 col-12 col-md-6 img-fluid" data-responsive="" data-src="<? echo $config->urls->templates ;?><? echo $item->page_home_owl_01_img; ?>" data-sub-html="<h4><? echo $item->page_home_owl_01_h4; ?></h4><p><? echo $item->page_home_owl_01_p; ?></p>">                                     <a href="">                                         <img class="img-responsive" src="<? echo $config->urls->templates ;?><? echo $item->page_home_owl_01_img; ?>">                                     </a>                                 </li>                                 <? endforeach; ?>                                                         </ul>                         </div>  
      I tried any variants of options C and D from this page:
      https://processwire.com/api/modules/front-end-editing/
      Are there any hints for me, what I can do?
      Any help is highly appreciated!

      Please see attached screenshot. The image on the left is the original image that was uploaded. The image on the right is what it looks like after it was resized to fit into a template by ProcessWire using
      <img src="<?php echo $featured_image->size(854,0)->url ?>" /> This is a significant loss of color for these images. Is there a way to prevent this from happening — other than forcing client to crop the images to the exact dimensions ahead of time, and not resizing with PW?

      Hello together,
      I have a problem with the image field and in my case it seems that there is a limit of how much images can be in such field.
      The following case:
      I have around 20 pages. Each has a usual image field, where I can upload an unlimited number of images (array).
      Most of the pages got 50-200 images but one page got 411 images (I know, it’s much  )

      Now, when I change the order of one image (let’s say I drag & Drop the first image after the third) or delete one image by clicking on the trashcan, everything runs fine. BUT when I click SAVE the image won’t be deleted or moved to it’s new place. You can change anything else on the page - I have a text field there - and save it, no problem.
      Interestingly I can add (upload) new images but I’m not able to delete or move them.
      - The file size of the images are between 200kb and 1.7MB, RGB, JPGs.
      - When I duplicate the page and try to delete/move I got the same problem.
      - I also created a whole new page and got the same problem
      - Also tried a different server (virtual and online): same problem
      - ProcessWire 3.0.62
      So, is there a limited to the images field? Any clues except limiting the image files to max. +-200 images?
       
      Thanks so much in advance and have a great weekend.

      I am new to PW, and am trying to get an image to display, from a field in my template. Here's the code I'm using:
      <?php $image = $page->home_header_image; echo "<img src='{$image->url}' alt='{$image->description}' />"; ?> I'm following the tutorial on this here.
      When I save the template and reload the page, the path to the image is incomplete. If just echoes:
      <img src="/site/assets/files/1/" alt=""> It omits the name of the image, at the end of the path.
      Here's the site I'm working on:
      http://dev.delucaswpg.webfactional.com
      A couple caveats:
      I'm using ProcessWire 2.3.0 (tried updating the site and everything went berserk because of some plugin dependencies; point being: I can't update to the latest PW). I tried using the ->size thing and it gave me an error, saying it couldn't use 'size' in this context. Which I also thought was weird. Any ideas? Thanks!
