Smart Image Processor PHP 2 Manual FAQs Support

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

Smart Image Processor PHP 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.

Smart Image Processor PHP 2 is compatible with GD2 and ImageMagick! Most PHP servers already have GD2 or ImageMagick installed but our extension enables you to utilize the full power of those graphical components like never before! By empowering true image manipulation without any hand coding Smart Image Processor PHP 2 will change the way you enhance your images forever!

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.

has become one of my favourites

August 27, 2009 by Greta Garberini

Over the years it has become one of my favourites, although I dont use all of its features. What's especially nice with this extension that you can use it multiple times on one admin page to create several different sizes in one step.

Its crop feature is very helpful, letting you show a unique size of different pix. I never tried the watermark feature so far but it might become an issue due to copyright reasons for pictures. 

Altogether its the best picture upload extension so far, since all  bugs I have noticed have been fixed.
