Smart Image Processor ASP 2 Manual FAQs Support

DMXzone's most powerful Image Resize, Enhancement and Manipulation extension

Smart Image Processor 2 is DMXzone’s most powerful Image Resize, Enhancement and Manipulation extension that allows you to quickly and easily process multiple images, create thumbnails, use image options such as crop, flip, rotate, sharpen and blur, or create grayscale images. You can even brand your image by including a watermark or text.

This extension uses old Server Behaviors technology deprecated by Adobe and we will also deprecate it soon. Please use the new DMXzone Image Processor, based on the new DMXzone Server Connect technology for building dynamic web sites with server connectivity.

Full support for multiple input file formats
Resize GIF, JPG, PGM, PNG, TGA, TIFF, PCX or BMP files.

Full support for multiple output file formats
Save your images as JPG, PNG or GIF while maintaining transparency setting. If you use the JPG option you can adjust the JPEG quality. When saving the files as GIF, you can even choose from different palettes, dithering options and choose the number of colors.

A high performance ASP.NET component is included
For this extension no server component is needed. The extension features a genius ASP.NET secure web service! Now the power of Smart Image Processor 2 is available to any user via extended web services. Bridge the gap between ASP and ASP.NET by using the full power of ASP.NET in legacy ASP trough the Smart Image Processor 2 web services.

Support for many standard image processing server components
Usually the included high performance ASP.NET server component will be enough but if you don't have ASP.NET installed you can use popular server components like Shot Graph, ASPSmartImage, AspJpeg, AspImage, ImgWriter and AspThumb. Just Auto Detect the installed server components and use them.

Great Product, But Pricey

November 9, 2006 by Jeremy Conn
I really like the features and the interoperability between the other DMXzone extensions, but I definitely feel that this extension is a little too expensive, especially for the people who can't upgrade from the previous version. Great work, George.

Great Extention

November 12, 2006 by Dick Medema
This is again a very nice extention after Pure ASP Upload 3 is this the best extention.
Just a view clicks and your upload form is ready and there still some extra options for your uploaded images, look to the watermark option ;-).
I have to say the extention is so easy to juse that the price pays back in a very short time, the time you can spend now to design and details.
