Support » Plugin: Image Focus Point » [Plugin: Image Focus Point] Compatibility with imagemagick engine fix

  • The plugin works great and the concept is excellent. However, the ImageMagick Engine plugin wasn’t compatible with it, but the fix was easy. Both plugins get hooks to wp_generate_attachment_metadata, but Image Focus Point needs to do so last.

    In imageFocusPoint.php li ~297

    //[alx359] decrease priority, so the imagemagick engine hooks first (imagemagick-engine.php li ~91)
    //add_action('wp_generate_attachment_metadata', 'ifp_crop', 5, 2);
    add_action('wp_generate_attachment_metadata', 'ifp_crop', 11, 2);

  • YES!!! You are my man! 😀

    The fix definitely works. I still have to try it with more images and see how it works with all the different thumbnail sizes and aspect ratios. But I can confirm that it basically does what it is supposed to do (e.g. display a portrait format image in a landscape format thumbnail box w/o cutting off the heads of my models).

    Now I hope that the author of Image Focus Point will keep this plug-in updated, or cooperate with Orangelab (ImageMagick Engine) to maybe provide an all-in-one solution for photographers. The combination of the two plug-in’s is what I always wanted.

    Thanks a lot for the fix!

    Unfortunately spoken too soon… 🙁

    After applying the patch IFP works as advertised, but the regenerated thumbs do no longer have their color profile embedded. That’s, however, why I am using the ImageMagick Engine.

    Looks like IFP strips the metadata after the ImageMagick Engine regenerated the thumbs. That’s no good.
