Page Image Manipulator 1

Recommended Posts

Wow, good find! ^-^

The ratio is stored as extended info for the image and not used further, so a very good find. (and a very stupid bug, info[2] holds the mimetype  :wacko: )

I will fix this with the next update.

Hi Horst, I think I found one more.

PageImageManipulator.module, line 13: $this->optionNames is always NULL, because it doesn't get defined before (the class isn't even included at this point).

In consequence, param 2 and 3 are not working correctly as described here:

pimLoad

pimLoad($prefix, $param2=optional, $param3=optional)

  • param 1: $prefix - (string) = mandatory!
  • param 2: mixed, $forceRecreation or $options
  • param 3: mixed, $forceRecreation or $options

Sorry, Horst, I don't want to be pesky, but how does this work:

PageImageManipulator.module, line 142:

if(!in_array(strtolower($outputFormat), array('gif','png','jpg'))) {
	$outputFormat = $p['extension'];
}
$outputFormat = strtolower($outputFormat);
if(empty($targetFilename)) {
	$targetFilename = $p['dirname'] .'/pim_'. $prefix .'_'. $p['filename'] .'.'. $outputFormat;
}

$outputFormat is always NULL, that's how it was defined in line 96.

As a result, $outputFormat is always set to the original extension the image has when it was uploaded. Assuming I'm doing a format conversion (png -> jpg), $targetFilename always points to the wrong extension (png instead of jpg), and this file is non-existant. Meaning: everytime all images are recreated, slowing down the page...

titanium, please can you provide the code line for that with pimLoad?

At line 13 there is only comments. Also without need to test, param 2 definitely work, because I often use it to force recreation of a variations. So you cannot be right with this.

Your post regarding outputFormat, have you tested this or do you see this just by reading the code?

Ah sorry, a "1" is missing. It's in line 113.

Regarding the "outputFormat" problem: I noticed that my page was very slow with PageImage Manipulator. I took a closer look and noticed that the image files were created once again every time the page was loaded. After that, I was on a bug hunt...

Ok, your first post is wrong, because the second and third param is processed by the function.

But you are right with the post regarding outputFormat. The options passed as 2 or 3 param gets processsed but not assigned to $outputFormat if it is a key in options, and unfortunately $outputFormat overrides $options['outputFormat'] at the end of the function.

It is in the todo now. But as a quick workaround for you, you may completly bypass sending the $options together with pimLoad(). Insteed use it this way:

pimLoad('prefix'[, true | false])->setOptions($options)-> ... ->pimSave();

This works as expected. (I will rewrite the pimLoad to use this internally the same way)

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Are there any known limits with this module?

I'm trying to grayscale 10+ images on a single page using $image->first()->width(320)->pimLoad('bw')->grayscale()->pimSave()->url; and it ends up returning the first 9 images correctly, followed by this error:
Error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded

This even occurs when the grayscaled images already exist, still getting a timeout. I've resorted to using file_exists() to check for the grayscaled images manually. If they don't it runs the code above, so with a few page refreshes atfer new image uploads I'm able to eventually have all the images converted.

Any suggestions?

There are no limits with this module but with your max execution time for PHP.

add one line into your loop like here:

foreach($images as $image) {
    ini_set('max_execution_time', 30);  // this line resets the timer for max_execution_time with every loop.
    // following your code ...

EDIT:

It shouldn't take that long if images are already rendered. Please can you post your code of the loop here?

Sure thing:

<?php foreach ($page->children as $article) {
	$coverimage = $article->cover_image->first()->width(320);
	$bw = $coverimage->pimLoad('bw')->grayscale()->pimSave()->url;
	?>
	<a class="archive-item" href="<?php echo $article->url; ?>">
		<div class="archive-item-img"><img class="archive-item-img-overlay" src="<?php echo $bw; ?>"></div>
		<div class="archive-item-text-container"><div class="archive-item-text">
			<?php
			echo "<div class='archive-item-title'>".$article->title."</div>";
			echo "<div>".$article->contributor->title."</div>";
			?>
		</div></div>
	</a>
<?php } ?>

Hhm, you are not looping through images but childpages. You may try to debug the times for the images rendering.

Also you can do the resize to 320 and grayconvert in one step.
 

<?php   
$timerstotal = array();

foreach ($page->children as $article) {
    ini_set('max_execution_time', 30);
    $timers = array();
    $timer = Debug::timer();
    $timers[] = Debug::timer($timer);  // start image rendering
    $bw = $article->cover_image->first()->pimLoad('bw320')->width(320)->grayscale()->pimSave();
    $timers[] = Debug::timer($timer);  // finished image rendering
?>
    <a class="archive-item" href="<?php echo $article->url; ?>">
        <div class="archive-item-img"><img class="archive-item-img-overlay" src="<?php echo $bw->url; ?>"></div>
        <div class="archive-item-text-container"><div class="archive-item-text">
        <?php
            echo "<div class='archive-item-title'>".$article->title."</div>";
            echo "<div>".$article->contributor->title."</div>";
        ?>
        </div></div>
    </a>
<?php 
    $timers[] = Debug::timer($timer);  // none image stuff finished
    $timerstotal[] = $timers;
} 

// output timers
echo "<pre>\n"; // or "<!-- \n" to output it as HTML comment 
var_dump($timerstotal);
echo "\n</pre>"; // or "\n-->\n";
?>

Horst,

a very helpful module! Thank you. However, I miss a feature that would be helpful: 

cropFromCenter(width, height); 

- Resizing and cropping in the original aspect ratio 

The image is reduced first to the width or the height. If it does not fit into the new format, the image is automatically cropped from the middle of the image.

Regards,

David

@David: this is already supported by the core ImageSizer. You can combine ImageSizer and PiM manipulations in any order you like:

$croppedVariation1 = $image->size($width, $height, array('cropping'=>true))->pimLoad('prefix')->grayscale()->pimSave();
$croppedVariation2 = $image->pimLoad('prefix')->grayscale()->pimSave()->size($width, $height);  // cropping is true by default in $config->imageSizerOptions in site/config.php

If this doesn't suite your needs, report back please.

as you can see all image renderings are less than a second. Only number 7 = nearly 3 seconds and number 8 is more than 10 seconds!

It seems that this is a much to big image, maybe.

Also the ini_set('max_execution_time', 30); seems to be disabled / forbidden on your server.  :(

I would try to get this enabled. Can you ask your hoster about this? Also you can try to use set_time_limit(30) instead first, but I guess this will be disabled too. You should have a look to your phpinfo() under safe_mode and disabled functions.

Second point: do you really need that large images like under #8 that takes 10 seconds for rendering a 320 thumbnail? You can set a max dimension for width and height for the images-field under Setup -> Fields -> yourimagesfield -> Input -> Max Images Dimensions. This will render the uploaded image to these max dimensions (e.g. 1200 or 960 px or what ever you need) and takes this as source for all smaller sizes.

Also it looks that your images don't get cached? Do they get recreated every time you run that script? This is not the normal behave and sounds very strange if so. ??

Hi horst, thanks for looking at this so quickly!

The last two images that are taking ~3s and ~10s, the originals are only 450 x 600px (25kb) and 536 x 712px (74kb). They're no bigger than any of the other images, actually quite small compared to some others. Seems strange that each image is taking progressively longer to render?

The process is also still taking this long even though the images aren't being recreated each time, they're all saved in the assets directory and aren't being overwritten as far as I can see.

EDIT: Is this looking like it's something to with my server configuration? This is all happening on my local XAMPP server.

Yes, this is looking very weird. If it is on your local server, you can configure php.ini according to my suggestions above, (allowing set_time_limit(), etc). You need to check phpinfo().

set_time_limit(300) did it. Could only load two more, but here's the output:

hhm, but this is not the solution. There must be something completely wrong, because if the images once are rendered, it should only took 0.02 seconds for each image, regardless if it is the first or the 19. ??

hi  @horst  :

i want to add a watermark for page image. and use this module then got an error:

Error: Call to a member function pimLoad() on a non-object 

this caused error:

 
$img = $page->images->first();

$wmi = $page->watermark->pimLoad('wmi')->colorize('red')->pimSave();

$imgsrc = $img->pimLoad('tw',true)->width(180)->grayscale()->watermarkLogo($wmi, 'southeast', 0)->pimSave();

echo "<img src='{$imgsrc->url}' /><br />";
 

i use this,its works well, i found the new image be created:

$img = $page->images->first();
$imgsrc = $img->pimLoad('myPrefix')->setOptions($options)->width(300)->pimSave();
echo "<img src='{$imgsrc->url}' /><br />";

Hi @leoric,

I assume the error occures on the imagefield named watermark as you can use the pimLoad method with the field named images.

Here are a few questions:

  • Does your template / page have an imagefield with (exactly) that name?
  • Is this imagefield set to accept only a single image?
  • Like 1

I was able to reproduce POWERFULHORSE's speed issue.

some images hang for 30-40 seconds on an operation after they have been successfully rendered once.  

PHP: 5.4

PW: 2.4

GD: 2.10 compatible

CODE:
 

foreach ( $albumimages as $albumimage ) 
{
//FAST
$imgSrc = $albumimage->size(1000,600,array('upscaling' => true,'cropping' => false,'quality' => 70))->url;
//Fast with some files, but killer slow with others
$imgSrc =$sized->pimLoad('watermarked')->watermarkText("Gail Gelburd", 20, 'SW', 5, 100, null)->pimSave()->url;
//... 
}

The PIM portion of this operation can hang the the page for many seconds, even after successful rendering of page it does not get any faster on subsequent  page loads.  I can Upload the offending images if that offers any clues as to what can be going on.  If I can offer any additional debug info that might give any helpful clues as to what is going on let me know. Thanks for a great module Horst.

Hi @neeks,
 
at first: I'm not really sure if you have the same effect as powerfulhorse has had, because he has used a loop through childpages and even has had large amount of processing times for cached images?! Doesn't make much sense, hhm?

second: especially the watermarkText method never was meant to be used in bulk rendering. It uses much cpu and memory for calling many memory image copy operations and also inspect images by histograms to autodetect the best used color for the text, etc. So that is a lot of work it does and that is time consuming, - sorry I haven't noted this in the first post here. It was meant for something like showing thumbnails without watermark text on a page and only watermark larger (single) images when requested. Also its text output can be a bit (or very) ugly!?! - If you want add the same text to all images, you should create and use a transparent png with a nice (and maybe smooth) text together with the watermarkLogo method instead.

third: you may use and inspect debug timers with your code. If there are no significant differences with images processed later (comparing to images processed first), everything seems to be ok. If you get significantly larger times only with later processed images in your loop, then this can be due to some (weird?) design in PHP? PiM uses the correct code to release and free memory (pointers) for all objetcs / instances, but the PHP interpreter internally only seems to set this objects to zero but do not really free the memory to the system site. Somewhere I have read about a discussion between the PHP Group and others and "the others" said that the PHP devs have said that it isn't necessary to release / free pointers because all pointers and handles will be released / freed at the end of every request, (because the complete php instance is closed / released then). I haven't investigated further on this, and maybe I have overlooked to release some objects. I will take a closer look to it when finding time for it. But don't expect it in the near future.

---

On the other hand do I use the watermarkLogo method within a loop on a gallery site where it sometimes create 100+ watermarked image variations [2] at first call of an album page without any drawbacks:

$gallery = "<div id='myGallery'>\n";
if(count($page->images)>0) {
    // display imageThumbs
    $num = -1;
    foreach($page->images as $image) {
[1]     set_time_limit(5);
        $imageName = pathinfo($image->name,PATHINFO_FILENAME);
        $imageDescription = strlen(trim($image->description))>0 ? ', ' . preg_replace('/[^0-9a-zA-ZöüäÖÜÄß -]/msi', '', trim($image->description)) : '';
        $num++;
[2]     $gallery .= "\t<a id='uid$num' rel='nofollow' title='{$imageName}{$imageDescription}' href='{$image->pimLoad('full',false)->watermarkLogo($wmPng)->pimSave()->url}'> </a>\n";
        ...
        ...
    }
}
$gallery .= "</div>\n";
set_time_limit(20);

All source images are max 1000 px and as you can see in the loop I use a time_limit of max 5 seconds [1] per loop.

      Here's a small new module that started as a spinoff of a memcache proof-of-concept. Cache your strings and partials in-memory using Redis as a backend.
      CacheRedis
      All you need is a running Redis database. The module supports connection through regular TCP, over TLS and via unix domain sockets. Host and port are configurable, and authentication is supported too. Here's a screenshot of the module configuration options:

      I'll not go into too many details about the usage, you can see everything explained in the README on GitHub, and just highlight the most important points.
      When the module is active, you'll have a wired $redis variable, which means you can reach the module as $redis, wire("redis") or within Wire classes / modules as $this->redis.
      CacheRedis is strongly influenced by WireCache, and its usage is (hopefully) straight forward.
      // Store an entry in the cache under the given key name with the given value: $redis->store("cached_value_number_one", $expire, $value); // Retrieve a value from the cache $value = $redis->fetch($key); // Delete a cache entry $redis->delete("my_other_cached_value"); // Clear the whole cache $redis->flush(); // Retrieve a value from the cache, and if not found, create it through the given function // and store it with a lifetime of 5 minutes (300 seconds) $value = $redis->fetch($key, 300, function() use($page) { return "Page last changed on " . strftime('%m/%d/%Y %H:%M', $page->modified | $page->created); }); // Render a file using wireRenderFile and store it in the cache. // We'll pass a selector as the expiry value so this cache gets // emptied every time a page matching the selector is saved. $news = $redis->renderFile("partials/news.php", 'template=blog-post', ["page" => $page]); The module is still very crude work in progress, but I hope some of you feel daring, try it out and let me know in case anything breaks.
      Have fun!

      This module is (yet another) way for implementing a cookie management solution.
      Of course there are several other possibilities:
      - https://processwire.com/talk/topic/22920-klaro-cookie-consent-manager/
      - https://github.com/webmanufaktur/CookieManagementBanner
      - https://github.com/johannesdachsel/cookiemonster
      - https://www.oiljs.org/
      - ... and so on ...
      In this module you can configure which kind of cookie categories you want to manage:

      You can also enable the support for respecting the Do-Not-Track (DNT) header to don't annoy users, who already decided for all their browsing experience.
      Currently there are four possible cookie groups:
      - Necessary (always enabled)
      - Statistics
      - Marketing
      - External Media
      All groups can be renamed, so feel free to use other cookie group names. I just haven't found a way to implement a "repeater like" field as configurable module field ...
      When you want to load specific scripts ( like Google Analytics, Google Maps, ...) only after the user's content to this specific category of cookies, just use the following script syntax:
      <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="statistics" data-src="/path/to/your/statistic/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing" data-src="/path/to/your/mareketing/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="external_media" data-src="/path/to/your/external-media/script.js"></script> <script type="optin" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing">console.log("Inline scripts are also working!");</script> The type has to be "optin" to get recognized by PrivacyWire, the data-attributes are giving hints, how the script shall be loaded, if the data-category is within the cookie consents of the user. These scripts are loaded asynchronously after the user made the decision.
      If you want to give the users the possibility to change their consent, you can use the following Textformatter:
      [[privacywire-choose-cookies]] It's planned to add also other Textformatters to opt-out of specific cookie groups or delete the whole consent cookie.
      You can also add a custom link to output the banner again with a link / button with following class:
      <a href="#" class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</a> <button class="privacywire-show-options">Show Cookie Options</button> This module is still in development, but we already use it on several production websites.
      You find it here: PrivacyWire Git Repo

      I would love to hear your feedback 🙂
      CHANGELOG
      0.0.5 Multi-language support included completely (also in TextFormatter).

      This is a new module that provides a simple solution to clearing all your cache layers at once, and an extensible interface to perform various cache-related actions.
      The simple motivation behind this module was that I was tired of manually clearing caches in several places after deploying a change on a live site. The basic purpose of this module is a simple Clear all caches link in the Setup menu which clears out all caches, no matter where they hide. You can customize what exactly the module does through it's configuration menu:
      Expire or delete all cache entries in the database, or selectively clear caches by namespace ($cache API) Clear the the template render cache. Clear out specific folders inside your site's cache directory (/site/assets/cache) Refresh version strings for static assets to bust client-side browser caches (this requires some setup, see the full documentation for details). This is the basic function of the module. However, you can also add different cache management action through the API and execute them through the module's interface. For this advanced usage, the module provides:
      An interface to see all available cache actions and execute them. A system log and logging output on the module page to see verify what the module is doing. A CacheControlTools class with utility functions to clear out different caches. An API to add cache actions, execute them programmatically and even modify the default action. Permission management, allowing you granular control over which user roles can execute which actions. The complete documentation can be found in the module's README.
      Beta release
      Note that I consider this a Beta release. Since the module is relatively aggressive in deleting some caches, I would advise you to install in on a test environment before using it on a live site.
      Let me know if you're getting any errors, have trouble using the module or if you have suggestions for improvement!
      In particular, can someone let me know if this module causes any problems with the ProCache module? I don't own or use it, so I can't check. As far as I can tell, ProCache uses a folder inside the cache directory to cache static pages, so my module should be able to clear the ProCache site cache as well, I'd appreciate it if someone can test that for me.
      Future plans
      If there is some interest in this, I plan to expand this to a more general cache management solution. I particular, I would like to add additional cache actions. Some ideas that came to mind:
      Warming up the template render cache for publicly accessible pages. Removing all active user sessions. Let me know if you have more suggestions!

      Admin Page Tree Multiple Sorting
      ClassName: ProcessPageListMultipleSorting
      Extend the ordinary sort of children of a template in the admin page tree with multiple properties. For each template, you can define your own rule. Write each template (template-name) in a row, followed by a colon and then the additional field names for sorting.
      Example: All children of the template "blog" to be sorted in descending order according to the date of creation, then descending by modification date, and then by title. Type:
      blog: -created, -modified, title  Installation
      Copy the files for this module to /site/modules/ProcessPageListMultipleSorting/ In admin: Modules > Check for new modules. Install Module "Admin Page Tree Multible Sorting". Alternative in ProcessWire 2.4+
      Login to ProcessWire backend and go to Modules Click tab "New" and enter Module Class Name: "ProcessPageListMultipleSorting" Click "Download and Install"   Compatibility   I have currently tested the module only under PW 2.6+, but think that it works on older versions too. Maybe someone can give a feedback.     Download   PW-Repo: http://modules.processwire.com/modules/process-page-list-multiple-sorting/ GitHub: https://github.com/FlipZoomMedia/Processwire-ProcessPageListMultipleSorting     I hope someone can use the module. Have fun and best regards, David
