I have always been a little annoyed that I had to create an upload page for thumbs and an upload page for main images but now I have this extension life couldn’t be more pleasurable.
In all of 5 minutes I have my main image uploaded and auto created thumbnails to my dimensions. Can you believe that?!!
What I really like though is the resize functionality - How many times have you handed over a site to a client only for that client to upload an image too large for your design or you may have set image restrictions for upload that confuse the client. Well with this you set the maximum width and height and then if an image is uploaded larger than these dimensions the extension with the help of the COM resizes them and also keeps the right constraints of the image.
I've used a few of George's extensions and I just picked up Smart Image Processor and it works great! Even if you know a bit of programming his extentions will save you so much time! The Smart image processor works exactly as advertised and the support is second to none. With ASP Upload and Smart Image processor now implmented I have saved myself hour of update time every week. If you upload and resize images on a regular baisis you NEED these extensions!
Since George foreshadowed this extension mid year I had been eagerly awaiting its release - and it was well worth the wait. Now I can control the size of user uploaded images without getting them to use imaging software and can also generate an other sized (thumbnail) image at the same time. My latest project has volunteers taking digital images of aged care facilities and uploading them, plus titles to a database, so that the thumbnail and full size image can be automatically be added to a photo gallery of the facilities. Using unskilled people like this would have been impossible without SIP. My only caution is to make sure that your webhost has the appropriate ASP facilities or is prepared to register the supplied dll.
I now eagerly await the revision of the add ons to be able to update/delete the main image and thumbnail together.
