More Than One Thumbnail Size (7 posts)

    I'd like to have more than one thumbnail size for images when I upload them. Is there a hack or plugin that will allow me to do this?

    Check out the settings under: Setting -> Media. Here you will find 3 different that WordPress generates for you whenever you upload an image. This makes for a total of four sizes per image upload:

    Original
    Large
    Medium
    Thumbnail

    I know that, but Thumbnail is the only option that crops the image. I need something that will allow it to crop another size other than the thumbnail.

    2.8 should have integration with jcrop which is pretty exciting. check out a demo here:

    Haven't seen it in the nightly builds yet though...

    Sounds awesome. How far off is that?

    Check out the Scissors plugin, it may be what you want:

    It uses jcrop and lets you crop images yourself within WP.

    I'm looking for additional thumbnail sizes too. Scissors doesn't really fit for me as it doesn't create additional copies, just crops the original. You could work around this problem by just uploading the image twice but that's a pain.

    I'm really suprised there's no plugin which just gives additional thumbnail sizes to WordPress. The script TimThumb is very good and has caching. However, you still take php hits for every image load as it has to check the cache integrity - not sure what the performance difference really is.
