Flipper images crop to same size

Question

Posted · Report post

I had a look for info on this and seem to go around in circle with no definitive answer.

 

Is it something in Wordpress itself that has to be changed. Or a mod in DMS?

 

Bottom line - is it possible to to set the the Flipper images to crop?

Donna111 - I have no idea what that code is or where you have added it. We do not provide support for third party scripts. If you want Flipper to crop your images then use the Flipper option, you may need to use a plugin to regenerate your thumbnails.

 

If that doesn't work to your liking then you can use an application such as PhotoShop or GIMP to resize your image.

I personally find it better to bring my photos in at a size I plan to use.  Relying on the cropping of plugins and WP gets tricky.  That said, I think there is a selection for which size thumb to use and 'aspect thumb' cropped the photos I was using for a client correctly.

Totally agree on the size thing

 

re crop - I thought the same - changed the settings, but no change? Every image in the flipper ends up a different depth.

Hi,

 

Flipper by default doesn't crop your images (but can be changed), the reason for this (as far as I know) is for responsive reasons. If you set the image(s) to crop, then when you view your site on a large resolution for example, the images will remain the same size.

 

In my opinion, if you're going to be using images for your blogs featured image or anything like that, then they should always have the same dimensions.

Just trying to get my head around that. ;)

 

AFAIKS - The flipper (featured) images are scaled to fit proportionally with a responsive width - independent of the size of the original

 

So if you used cropped images - you'd still get the fixed width and they'd all be the same height - BUT resolution would be dependent on the cropped size.

 

OK - if the cropped size were small - then I could see an issue with large resolution displays.

But if the crop size were a sensible size - would that not negative the problem?

 

For now - appreciate you feedback and will go with fixed dimension images.

Have you not changed the settings like I mentioned above ?

Use the Thumbnail option and the result will be this - http://d.pr/i/SWyY

The Ps4 image is huge and has been cropped.

 

Either way, I would ways recommend using the same dimensions for your featured images.

Yes I changed to 'aspect thumb' - but didn't see any difference.

 

Do the post 'featured images' have to be regenerated in some way?

Try the thumbnail option like I mentioned above, you may need to regenerate your thumbs, you can do this with a plugin from the Wordpress plugin repo.

HI there

I have encountered the similar questions with you.I tried to crop the image using this code which i got from google:

namespace RE__Test
{
public partial class Form1 : Form
{
public Form1()
{
InitializeComponent();
}

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
string fileName = "c:/Sample.png";

REImage reImage = REFile.OpenImageFile(fileName);

ImageProcessing.Apply
Image Crop(reImage, 80, 80, 500, 500);

REFile.SaveImageFile(reImage, "c:/reimage.png", new PNGEncoder());
}
}

But it can not work.What's wrong with my code?Is there any image tool which supports to do that directly?Thanks a lot

What worked for me was this:

 

.flipper-wrap .flipper-items > li img {max-height:200px;}

 

Since the responsive nature of the section takes care of the width, i just needed to set a max-height value to get em all standardized.
