Page Image Manipulator | API for 1 & 2

Recommended Posts

The next version of PiM will be able to enhance the Thumbnails module

(after I have successful send a pull request to apeisa and he have had time to check and implement the code, - hopefully)
While writing on the (optional) support for PiM with Thumbnails, owzim has written the js-code that rebuilds the crop rectangle, - and also he has tested and forthrightly commented my various tests with that. ^-^
Thumbnails will recognize if PiM is installed and use a different routine then. And without PiM the Thumbnails Module will use the PW core ImageSizer. Since dev-version 2.3.3 the ImageSizer uses automatic sharpening after resize. So - once after updating to the new module and a newer PW version (dev 2.3.3 or stable 2.4) everyone has sharpening support. :)

We both (owzim & me) want to have the coords & data stored and pre-selected when coming back to a previous created thumbnail. We use a wrapper class with a read and a write method on a session basis to achieve that. (After closing the browser or otherwise destroy the session, all data is lost)
But together with PiM the coords and options can be stored permanent! It can be stored as metadata in a IPTC custom field (2#215) with the original imagefile. :)

If you want enable permanent storage you have to create a config array named imageManipulatorOptions in your site/config.php and create the key thumbnailCoordsPermanent and set it to true:

$config->imageManipulatorOptions = array(
   // ...
	'thumbnailCoordsPermanent' => true

So, - if you don't want permanent storage, you are still able to use Thumbnails Module and PiM together, but without permanent storage.


EDIT: PullRequest is send https://github.com/apeisa/Thumbnails/pull/13 (the unorthodox way) :P

@horst Thanks for the explanation. Maybe it's also ok if you mention the transparency range in your documentation so it's not necessary to change the code ;-)

@horst Thanks for the explanation. Maybe it's also ok if you mention the transparency range in your documentation so it's not necessary to change the code ;-)

I have had to rewrite it because the alpha transparency wasn't supported at all.

I just have pushed the version 0.0.8 to GitHub. :)


There are some other fixes and changes with the version 0.0.8:

  • added enhanced support for Thumbnails module, including permanent storage for CropRectangleCoords and params
  • fixed / rewritten all bg-color stuff to support rgba alpha channel
  • fixed a E-Notice with IPTC prepare
  • changed the params of method resize, width, height to be the same like in new ImageSizer, ($sharpen can have value 'none')

I will also update the first post of this thread.

@Marty: thanks! Have you seen the post about PiM working together with Thumbnails too? I think you will like it! At least you are responsible for the existence of the Thumbnails Module. ^-^  ( and yes, - Antti  ^-^  is responsible too)

I'm very new and inexpertly with GitHub, because of that I have asked owzim if he can help me to send a pull request to Thumbnails repo with only code for sharpening support. While talking/writing about that GitHub stuff - we also come to conclusion that Thumbnails needs recreation of previously used thumbs. And as I don't know the JS stuff, owzim seems to know it very well and he wrote it! ^-^

I really like that community here and also how good people work together to make things good and better. ^-^

Thank you!

Hi Horst,

Trying to create a gif from a PNG 24.

Hi Martijn,

sorry, in a previous version this has worked, but by rewriting for rgba support I must have broken it. I have pushed an update to github that solved the issue.

But I think the result from converting transparent png to gif isn't what you expect :( 

Because transparency get not transformed into GIF-Palette-Color. It seems this isn't possible, - at least not that simple. ??

But bug is fixed now, thanks for your help!

Hi Horst, 

TNX for your followup & bug fix.

<horst>But I think the result from converting transparent png to gif isn't what you expect :(</horst>

Is it possible to create a jpeg from the PNG 24 attach a background form a variable value [ rgb(100,100,100) ] then scale it and save it to gif ?

( want to use it in for newsletters )

Hi Martijn,

can you only use gif? (Newsletter with embedded cid: ?)

You may try:

function pimPng2Gif($im1, $rgb) {
	imagealphablending($im1, true);
	imagesavealpha($im1, false);
	$w = imagesx($im1);
	$h = imagesy($im1);
	$im2 = imagecreatetruecolor($w, $h);
	imagealphablending($im2, true);
	imagesavealpha($im2, false);
	$bg = imagecolorallocate($im2, $rgb[0], $rgb[1], $rgb[2]);
	return $im2;

$rgb = array(219,17,116);

$png = $page->images->first()->pimLoad('png2gif',true);
$gif = $png->setMemoryImage( pimPng2Gif($png->getMemoryImage(), $rgb) )->setOutputformat('gif')->save();

echo "<img src='{$gif->url}' /> {$gif->name}";

Hi guys, im totaly new to PHP and i cant figure out what im doing wrong here :

		$news = $pages->find("parent=1009");
		$out =" ";
		foreach($news as $news){
			$pageimage = $news->images->first->width(313)->pimLoad('news')->pimSave()->url;
			$out .= "<li><a href='{$news->url}'>";
			$out .= "<img src='{$pageimage}' alt='' />";
			$out .= "{$news->title}";
			$out .= "{$news->body}";
			$out .= date("j.m.Y", $news->created);
			$out .= "</a></li>";
	echo $out;

and here is my error:

<p class="error WireFatalError">
Error: Call to a member function width() on a non-object (line 9 of D:\xampp\htdocs\projects\chemik\site\templates\home\news.html)

foreach($news as $news){

On this line you are overriding the array news, by assigning the individual item to it. Change one of those variables to something different. Don't forget to change all occurrences of it.

@vxda:  and of course, for resizing you don't need the Pageimage Manipulator. It is enough to call ->width() on a pageimage:

// example
$pageimage = $myNewsItem->images->first->width(313)->url;

But also your variable names are a bit confusing: your variable $pageimage contains only the URL. I would change this to avoid confusion:

// example
$pageimage = $myNewsItem->images->first->width(313);

// and then
$out .= "<img src='{$pageimage->url}' alt='' />";

Ty for a quick reply.

i changed my code to this

	$news = $pages->find("parent=1009");
	$out ="";
	foreach($news as $newsitem){
		$newsimg = $newsitem->images->first->width(313);
		$out .= "<li><a href='{$newsitem->url}'>";
		$out .= "<img src='{$newsimg->url}' alt='' />";
		$out .= "{$newsitem->title}";
		$out .= "{$newsitem->body}";
		$out .= date("j.m.Y", $newsitem->created);
		$out .= "</a></li>";
	echo $out;

and i still have this error.

when i remove


it picks the right picture and it all works, but without resizing img.

what am i missing ?

Thank you

Ok i got it ;) problem solved


if ($newsimg) {
	$newsimg = $newsimg->size(313,177)->url;

solved the problem so my code looks like this now :

				$news = $pages->find("parent=1009");
				$out ="";
					foreach($news as $newsitem){
						$newsimg = $newsitem->images->first;
						if ($newsimg) {
							$newsimg = $newsimg->size(313,177)->url;
						$out .= "<li><div><a href='{$newsitem->url}'>";
						$out .= "<img src='{$newsimg}' alt='' />";

						$out .= "{$newsitem->title}";
						$out .= "{$newsitem->body}";
						$out .= date("j.m.Y", $newsitem->created);
						$out .= "</a></div></li>";
					echo $out;

Thank you for help.

vxda glad you figured it out.

It's always good to check if there's images, you could also use count(), and maybe also not output the image if there's no image.

So you could also do

$out .= "<li><div><a href='{$newsitem->url}'>";
if ($newsitem->images->count()) {
   $out .= "<img src='{$newsitem->images->first->size(313,177)->url}'/>";
$out .= "{$newsitem->title}";

First one is nicer to look at (in my opinion). I don't believe there is real difference.

Hi Horst,

thanks for this really impressive module. It's a dream (even the watermarking is important for me).

I have one problem.

I often have to delete images and replace with newer ones.

But then i get a large amount of orphaned pim-image-files in my page assets folders.

A solution was mentioned here:


But isn't there a way to delete the appropriate pim-image-file(s) automatically when deleting the original pw-image-file ?

... But isn't there a way to delete the appropriate pim-image-file(s) automatically when deleting the original pw-image-file ?

Actually you only can use the method removePimVariations() on a per image base to delete all your testfiles!

$img = $page->images->first();


and they all are gone.

But automaticly delete them when deleting a original image isn't supported yet. At least if you delete them manually in the backend. If you delete them via the API, there should be a simple way / workaround to get it solved. How do you delete them?

When deleteing images manually in the backend:

If you really have much changes and therefor a lot of orphaned files, you may use the lazycron module (core, but you have to install it first) together with the delete-orphaned-files script.

It would be much better to get rid of that automaticly as you said, but I need to find the way how to do it. And within next weeks there are no time available for extending PiM. :(

Today I have added a hook to the module that add pim_* variations to pageimage-variation-collection.

This is usefull to not have mass orphaned (pim_)images on the disk when original images got deleted.

I have had this code ready for many weeks and would have done some more (workaround for GDlibs buggy sharpening on pngs with alpha-transparency) before update the module. But I haven't had time for this.

So, there are no other changes in module version 0.1.1 what is available now at github and in the modules section.

Thank you, Horst, for this great module.

Bug report: the ratio isn't calculated correctly.

Two lines containing:

'ratio'	   => floatval(($info[0]>=$info[1] ? $info[0]/$info[1] : $info[1]/$info[2]))

have to be:

'ratio'	   => floatval(($info[0]>=$info[1] ? $info[0]/$info[1] : $info[1]/$info[0]))

      I'm using this module in several projects, but it will likely not see any updates in the future. I'm not happy with it and I'm looking for ways to develop better solutions. RockTabulator was my first try, but I'm also not 100% happy with that. The tabulator library is great, but my module implementation is not. I hope to get a good solution soon, but it will be a lot of work...
      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.

      Support: Please note that this module might not be as easy and plug&play as many other modules. It needs a good understanding of agGrid (and JavaScript in general) and it likely needs some looks into the code to get all the options. Please understand that I can not provide free support for every request here in the forum. I try to answer all questions that might also help others or that might improve the module but for individual requests I offer paid support (please contact me via PM).
      Use Cases / Examples:
      Colored grid cells, Icons, Links etc. The Grid also has a "batcher" feature built in that helps communicating with the server via AJAX and managing resource intensive tasks in batches:

      Filters, PW panel links and instant reload on panel close:

      You can combine the grid with a chart library like I did with the (outdated) RockDataTables module:

      Hi there. I wrote a custom module for one of my projects. In fact I maybe want to use my module in other projects too. In order to be variable and customizable  I need to implement some custom hooks into my module. So I can afterwards hook into the my functions in order to modify them to match the needs of the new project.
      I tried simply defining functions with the '__' prefix. But that did not work. I'm imagining something like the following:
      <?php class MyClass { public function ___someFunction() { // Do something } } // ready.php $this->addHookBefore('MyClass::someFunction', function($event) { // some customization }); Is there a way to accomplish that? 
    • By adrian
      Hi everyone,
      Here's a new module that I have been meaning to build for a long time.
      What does it do?
      Do you have a bunch of admin snippets laying around, or do you recreate from them from scratch every time you need them, or do you try to find where you saw them in the forums, or on the ProcessWire Recipes site?
      Admin Actions lets you quickly create actions in the admin that you can use over and over and even make available to your site editors (permissions for each action are assigned to roles separately so you have full control over who has access to which actions).
      Included Actions
      It comes bundled with several actions and I will be adding more over time (and hopefully I'll get some PRs from you guys too). You can browse and sort and if you have @tpr's Admin on Steroid's datatables filter feature, you can even filter based on the content of all columns. 

      The headliner action included with the module is: PageTable To RepeaterMatrix which fully converts an existing (and populated) PageTable field to either a Repeater or RepeaterMatrix field. This is a huge timesaver if you have an existing site that makes heavy use of PageTable fields and you would like to give the clients the improved interface of RepeaterMatrix.
      Copy Content To Other Field
      This action copies the content from one field to another field on all pages that use the selected template.
      Copy Field Content To Other Page
      Copies the content from a field on one page to the same field on another page.
      Copy Repeater Items To Other Page
      Add the items from a Repeater field on one page to the same field on another page.
      Copy Table Field Rows To Other Page
      Add the rows from a Table field on one page to the same field on another page.
      Create Users Batcher
      Allows you to batch create users. This module requires the Email New User module and it should be configured to generate a password automatically.
      Delete Unused Fields
      Deletes fields that are not used by any templates.
      Delete Unused Templates
      Deletes templates that are not used by any pages.
      Email Batcher
      Lets you email multiple addresses at once.
      Field Set Or Search And Replace
      Set field values, or search and replace text in field values from a filtered selection of pages and fields.
      FTP Files to Page
      Add files/images from a folder to a selected page.
      Page Active Languages Batcher
      Lets you enable or disable active status of multiple languages on multiple pages at once.
      Page Manipulator
      Uses an InputfieldSelector to query pages and then allows batch actions on the matched pages.
      Page Table To Repeater Matrix
      Fully converts an existing (and populated) PageTable field to either a Repeater or RepeaterMatrix field.
      Template Fields Batcher
      Lets you add or remove multiple fields from multiple templates at once.
      Template Roles Batcher
      Lets you add or remove access permissions, for multiple roles and multiple templates at once.
      User Roles Permissions Batcher
      Lets you add or remove permissions for multiple roles, or roles for multiple users at once.
      Creating a New Action
      If you create a new action that you think others would find useful, please add it to the actions subfolder of this module and submit a PR. If you think it is only useful for you, place it in /site/templates/AdminActions/ so that it doesn't get lost on module updates.
      A new action file can be as simple as this:
      class UnpublishAboutPage extends ProcessAdminActions { protected function executeAction() { $p = $this->pages->get('/about/'); $p->addStatus(Page::statusUnpublished); $p->save(); return true; } } Each action:
      class must extend "ProcessAdminActions" and the filename must match the class name and end in ".action.php" like: UnpublishAboutPage.action.php the action method must be: executeAction() As you can see there are only a few lines needed to wrap the actual API call, so it's really worth the small extra effort to make an action.
      Obviously that example action is not very useful. Here is another more useful one that is included with the module. It includes $description, $notes, and $author variables which are used in the module table selector interface. It also makes use of the defineOptions() method which builds the input fields used to gather the required options before running the action.
      class DeleteUnusedFields extends ProcessAdminActions { protected $description = 'Deletes fields that are not used by any templates.'; protected $notes = 'Shows a list of unused fields with checkboxes to select those to delete.'; protected $author = 'Adrian Jones'; protected $authorLinks = array( 'pwforum' => '985-adrian', 'pwdirectory' => 'adrian-jones', 'github' => 'adrianbj', ); protected function defineOptions() { $fieldOptions = array(); foreach($this->fields as $field) { if ($field->flags & Field::flagSystem || $field->flags & Field::flagPermanent) continue; if(count($field->getFieldgroups()) === 0) $fieldOptions[$field->id] = $field->label ? $field->label . ' (' . $field->name . ')' : $field->name; } return array( array( 'name' => 'fields', 'label' => 'Fields', 'description' => 'Select the fields you want to delete', 'notes' => 'Note that all fields listed are not used by any templates and should therefore be safe to delete', 'type' => 'checkboxes', 'options' => $fieldOptions, 'required' => true ) ); } protected function executeAction($options) { $count = 0; foreach($options['fields'] as $field) { $f = $this->fields->get($field); $this->fields->delete($f); $count++; } $this->successMessage = $count . ' field' . _n('', 's', $count) . ' ' . _n('was', 'were', $count) . ' successfully deleted'; return true; } }  
      This defineOptions() method builds input fields that look like this:

      Finally we use $options array in the executeAction() method to get the values entered into those options fields to run the API script to remove the checked fields.
      There is one additional method that I didn't outline called: checkRequirements() - you can see it in action in the PageTableToRepeaterMatrix action. You can use this to prevent the action from running if certain requirements are not met.
      At the end of the executeAction() method you can populate $this->successMessage, or $this->failureMessage which will be returned after the action has finished.
      Populating options via URL parameters
      You can also populate the option parameters via URL parameters. You should split multiple values with a “|” character.
      You can either just pre-populate options:
      or you can execute immediately:

      Note the “options” vs “execute” as the last path before the parameters.
      Automatic Backup / Restore
      Before any action is executed, a full database backup is automatically made. You have a few options to run a restore if needed:
      Follow the Restore link that is presented after an action completes Use the "Restore" submenu: Setup > Admin Actions > Restore Move the restoredb.php file from the /site/assets/cache/AdminActions/ folder to the root of your site and load in the browser Manually restore using the AdminActionsBackup.sql file in the /site/assets/cache/AdminActions/ folder I think all these features make it very easy to create custom admin data manipulation methods that can be shared with others and executed using a simple interface without needing to build a full Process Module custom interface from scratch. I also hope it will reduce the barriers for new ProcessWire users to create custom admin functionality.
      Please let me know what you think, especially if you have ideas for improving the interface, or the way actions are defined.

      Module Class Name: PrivacyWire
      Changelog: https://github.com/blaueQuelle/privacywire/blob/master/Changelog.md
      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)
      - Functional
      - 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="text/plain" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="statistics" data-src="/path/to/your/statistic/script.js"></script> <script type="text/plain" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing" data-src="/path/to/your/mareketing/script.js"></script> <script type="text/plain" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="external_media" data-src="/path/to/your/external-media/script.js"></script> <script type="text/plain" data-type="text/javascript" data-category="marketing">console.log("Inline scripts are also working!");</script> The data-attributes (data-type and data-category) are required 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>  
      I would love to hear your feedback 🙂

      As we often use Matomo (former known as Piwik) instead of Google Analytics we wanted to embed Matomo not only in the template code but also via the ProcessWire backend.
      That's why I developed a tiny module for the implementation.
      The module provides the possibility to connect to an existing Matomo installation with the classical site tracking and also via the Matomo Tag Manager.
      If you have also PrivacyWire installed, you can tell MatomoWire to only load the script, if the user has accepted cookies via PrivacyWire.
      To offer an Opt-Out solution you can choose between the simple Opt-Out iFrame, delivered by your Matomo installation, or a button to choose cookies via PrivacyWire.
      You'll find the module both in the module directory and via github:
      ProcessWire Module Directory MatomoWire @ GitHub MatomoWire @ Packagist ->installable via composer require blauequelle/matomowire I'm looking forward to hear your feedback!
