Support » Plugin: YoImages » Retina images not created for manual crops

    On your main page you say

    YoImages cropping is retina friendly: if you are using a retina plugin that uses the standard @2x as file naming convention when creating retina images from source (e.g. WP Retina 2x) you can enable the retina friendly cropping option in YoImages’ settings page and the manual crops will be created in retina format too.

    I have (the free version of) the WP Retina 2x plugin installed and activated, and I have checked the Retina friendly checkbox on the Crop settings tab on YoImages’ settings page. WP Retina 2x does create an @2x version of all the crops when I upload a new image. But when I manually edit a crop, a retina version is not recreated. Instead I get 2 warnings:

    This crop is smaller than expected, you may replace the original image for this crop format using the replace button on the left and then cropping it

    This crop is too small to create the retina version of the image, you may replace the original image for this crop format using the replace button on the left and then crop it again.

    When I check the file system, indeed, the @2x version of the crop I manually edited remains unchanged – it does not match the new manual crop.

    I would really like to get retina versions of my manual crops. Can you help?

    Hi @jbchristy,
    the manual crop is not stretching the original image, so, to get @2x versions, you’ll need to start from a bigger original image (or to replace the original image for some crop formats only, as the first warning is suggesting).
    Please try to upload a bigger (ie retina size) original image and then the manual crop should be able to generate the @2x versions.
    Let us know how it’s going, regards

    Hi @sirulli,

    Thanks for your swift reply. However, image size is not the issue. The original image I uploaded is 4288×2848. None of the manual crops create retina images, including one that’s only 575×360. A @2x version of that crop would be 1150×720. There are more than enough pixels in the original to create a @2x version of a 575×360 crop.

    Any other thoughts?

    For the record, I’m using Version 0.1.5 of YoImages, and Version 4.8.0 of WP Retina 2x.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    @sirulli,

    It turns out the original image may have been slightly corrupted. I had difficulty opening it in a couple of image editors. I was able to open it PhotoShop and saved a compressed version of it. Once I uploaded the compressed version PhotoShop created, all worked as expected.

    Thanks again for your swift reply. Thanks also for a fantastic plugin! This is so helpful!

    Hi @jbchristy,
    good to hear that for other images the retina cropping is working fine.
    Thanks for using YoImages!
    Cheers,
