Description
Imagesizer install
Go to the ImageSizer download link appropriate for your version and download the plugin. Then you find
a .zip file in your download folder. Go to the administrator area of your Joomla website and go to the tab
"Extensions". From here you can select and upload the imagesizer .zip file. If everything is working properly,
you will find the plugin now under the tab "Extensions" -> "Plugins".
Imagesizer functions
The ImageSizer is activated when you scale a picture
from a original size. This happens either when you
manually set the height or width or when you drag the
image smaller by clicking on a corner of an image.
Imagesizer settings
Although all the important settings are pre-set for the
ImageSizer already, but there is still the possibility to set
adapted options. Go to the tab "Extensions" -> "Plugins"
-> "ImageSizer" and you get to the options.
Basic options
Lightbox-Script:
Here you can choose a suitable lightbox for
your website. The ImageSizer gives you a great selection of
lightboxes. Just select a lightbox and save the settings. Then
your image appears in the selected lightbox. We installed
several lightboxes in the ImageSizer, because it may happen
that some Lightboxes unable to tolerate certain templates or
other lightbox plugins.
minimal width/height (thumb):
This setting only works in
conjunction with the insert and resize settings, which is below,
and must be set to YES. The pictures in the content will be
automatically reduced to 120x120 size. NOTE: The images are
not simply scaled rectangular, but shown undistorted. Vertical
and horizontal images are each scaled with width or height to 120 pixels.
maximum width/height (image):
This setting set the maximum size for the images in the lightbox. If a
rectangular image is opened, in this example the lightbox open in a 800x800 size. IMPORTANT: If the picture
is vertical or horizontal too, the image will be not distorted, but scaled with only one value, width or height of
800 pixels.
Read-More-Function (only for ImageSizer 3.0):
When you click a picture over a "read more" function in the
content, it will be first show you the content behind the „read more“, before open the lightbox. Only when the
entire content is displayed, the image can be opened in a lightbox.
