    Image Resizing using ImageResizer

    We've included another open-source project in 2SexyContent - the (probably) best image resizing tool available to asp.net today. The ImageResizer is from Imazen, all is documented on http://imageresizing.net/. Here just some basic samples so you understand the potential and how to use it. Raphael also wrote a blog how to use this with tokens and razor.

    Original Image

    This is the 5 MB original image.

    Simple Thumbnails

    (shrink to max width 200 or max height 200).



    Constrained Two Ways

     ?h=200&w=200 (creates a 200x200 pic w/white space)

     ?h=200&w=200&mode=pad (creates a 200x200 pic w/white space, same as no mode)

     ?w=200&h=200&mode=max (creates an image that's 200 wide)

     ?w=200&h=200&mode=stretch (200x200, distorted)

    Cropped - The best Choice for Precise Designs


      ?w=200&h=200&mode=crop (ensure full 200x200, cuts rest, like facebook)

    ?w=200&h=200&mode=crop&anchor=middleleft (or topleft, topcenter, topright, middle..., bottom...)

    Enlarge if Necessary

    ?w=200&h=200&mode=crop&scale=both (or down, canvas - here not visible because pic too big)

    Change Background Color if not Transparent (jpg)

      ?w=200&h=200&bgcolor=ff0000 (or any other color for non-PNG, non-GIF)

    Using in your Templates

    ...is super trivial. First example is Tokens, second is Razor

    • [Content:Photo]?w=200
    • @Content.Photo?w=200
    • [Content:Screenshot]?w=700&h=300&mode=crop
    • @Content.Screenshot?w=700&h=300&mode=crop
