Support » Plugin: Crop-Thumbnails » Cropping at a specific image ratio

  • Resolved kkriss


    In my foodblog, users will add recipes with a featured image and 2-3- recipe gallery images through a frontend form. As they will post images with many different images ratio, I need to let them:
    1)crop at a specific global ratio (4:3)
    2) resize them (800 x 600)
    3) optimize quality (80-90).
    4) Original images should remain in a specific folder I will empty every now and then, or in a list that I will bulk delete or selecting some images manually.
    I read most of this functions are already in your plugin but is it possible to achieve all that?
    Thank you

    With my plugin backend useres are able to crop images of the “media” post-type. So the images have to be an entity in the DB to work with them.

    If the users should be able to crop the images thereself from the backend, you may also check that they will only be able to crop there own images. That should be possible by some of the hooks i provided in the plugin.

    Long story short: if you want an individual workflow you may be better by implementing the functionality by yourself. You may have look on code parts at If you want to extend the hole plugin keep in mind its gpl licensed.

    Hi Volkmar, thank for your reply.
    The ACF form plugin I use, already allows users to upload only new images of their own, not the ones in the WP media library. In this way, does your plugin work? Unfortunately I’m not a developer and can’t code myself nor use hooks or so.
    Also, my foodblog will be free and I can’t afford more charges other than domain, hosting, many many days of my work and so on, so I need a free or very cheap plugin, periodically update.
    There is an author working on it and his plugin will cost about 10 $/year as he has to add only the options to apply the crop ratio to an ACF frontend form , but I like also your plugin and will try if it fits my needs.

    If you use an ACF field i think you may be better by using another plugin.
    Sorry about that.

    I use an ACF field for featured image and another ACF field for a little 2-3 images gallery that users upload themselves. Very sorry about that too!
