(HeadsUp: Please, visit newer updated COBALT8 topic)
A discussion on the modified Cobalt Image field called AG Picture, lead to the following idea and improvement...
Image upload with (optional) preview and crop feature. Most applicable for single image fields, especially useful for profile avatars and company logos.
- select file to upload
- preview image
- crop image interactively (optional)
- save edited image (keep original for further edits?)
Some tutorials and ready-made solutions, mostly based on jQuery.
(there was a project called MooCrop based on MooTools, but it disappeared) :
[Jcrop - the jQuery Image Cropping Plugin]( http://deepliquid.com/content/Jcrop.html
) (2013, versatile, docs & API)
PHP & jQuery image upload and crop
Ajax Image Upload and Resize with jQuery and PHP (May 2012
Image Upload and Cropping with PHP and Jquery (june 2011)
