Support » Plugins » [Plugin: NextGEN Gallery] Imagemagick option results in cropped big thumbnails

  • Hi,

    This is a great plugin, and I love it. I have a problem, moving to a different host I got smallish PHP memory allocation (just 32 mb) which prevents me from uploading (or rather thumbnailing) 1024×768 sized images. I tried using the ImageMagick option for bigger size uploads but got a different problem. The thumbnail creation works fine with no error but the resulting thumbnails are simply a crop of the original image to the specified thumbnail size. I tried to futz around with the source code ( and found the following:

    – the imagemagick resize function actually works, in my attempt I put a hard value of 30×20 into the resize() function in the php file
    – apparently after the resize, the thumbnail got fed thru another resize that scaled it to the original image size
    – then the resulting image is cropped to the thumbnail dimension specified

    I am aware of the “experimental” status of using imagemagick in the plugin, but it would be great if anyone can share anything on this here.

    Again, great plugin!
