I am working on an application that requires users to upload images. Most of the users are every day folk and do not use image edit software. It would be great if the image uploader had a crop feature. This would allow me to let the user crop their image in the browser and upload with minimal user skill. This would solve my two issues at the moment. 1) the file sizes are too large - image uploader will take care of that issue. 2) The images have additional background picture information that needs to be cropped out ?

It is the second issue of cropping an image that needs to be addressed. Does the image loader offer any basic image edit functions for me to allow the user to crop an image?

I want these basic image edits/crops to take place on the client side and then uploaded. This will optimize my image upload needs.

Thank you for your time, Jack.

I have been looking at various products all weekend and found something that addresses my needs. activexobjects.com has an upload with edit feature that will work for me, although they do not appear to be developing anymore on this product. I feel if you could meet this need that I would rather buy from Aurigma.

I have checked and tested many of these image uploader components over the past week and keep coming back to this one for what seems to be better developer coding and true optimized bandwidth. Some of the products I have been testing use AJAX and want you to upload a large file to the servers and then edit/reduce them. This does not save me on the actual image bandwidth utilization. This product will help me for most of the browsers hitting my site. I just wish I my users could crop an image when using this component and then upload. This would be a tremendous savings on image bandwidth for my site. :)

I am also wanting this too.

Image uploader has a thumbnail resize function which can do the trick, but it put the word thumbnail in its name. would be good if we can remove this.

It is not that I want my users to resize the image. This would essentially just shrink the image. I want my users to be able to crop just the image data that is important in the picture and remove the rest. This would reduce the overall file size before the compression code before upload, optimizing the whole process. I invision a floating rectangle on a single image that the user gets to size and locate over the image they want to crop and upload just that data as the final image. I understand that this can only happen on one image at a time. Maybe this could be called Image Crop Uploader and be a separate product altogether.

Hello,

quacka:

You have just to save files with any other name in your upload script. For example if you want to save the first thumbnails with indexed names (1.jpg, 2.jpg and so on) here is the code:
Code:
for (int i = 1; i <= fileCount; i++)
{
//…
	//Get first thumbnail (the single thumbnail in this code sample) and save it to disk.
	HttpPostedFile thumbnail1File = Request.Files["Thumbnail1_" + i];
	thumbnail1File.SaveAs(Server.MapPath(galleryPath + "Thumbnails/" + i + ".jpg"));
//…
}

drano:

There is a control named Aurigma Image Upload Wizard which allows the user to select a file (one at a moment), crop/resize it and then upload to the server. The online demo will be available at the nearest time (we are working on it now). If you want more information about this product feel free to write to sales@aurigma.com.

Thanks Alex but we need to preserve the original file name.

That new wizard would be interesting only if we can select multiple files.

Hello,

Here is the code to save thumbnails to the "Thumbnails/" folder with the original file names:
Code:
for (int i = 1; i <= fileCount; i++)
{
//…
	HttpPostedFile sourceFile = Request.Files["SourceFile_" + i];
	string fileName = GetSafeFileName(Path.GetFileName(sourceFile.FileName));
	// Another variant:
	// string fileName = Request.Form["FileName_" + i];
	// Get first thumbnail (the single thumbnail in this code sample) and save it to disk.
	HttpPostedFile thumbnail1File = Request.Files["Thumbnail1_" + i];
	thumbnail1File.SaveAs(Server.MapPath(galleryPath + "Thumbnails/" + fileName));
//…
}

Thanks guys. I wrote my own activex component with VB6 for this purpose. I will still look at your product when it is ready as I am interested if you create a java one as well for other platforms. Thanks again, Jack.

It would be great to add some client-side image improvement.
I suggest auto levels - this tool can help in 90% cases with the poor quality images.

Hello,

At present time Image Upload Wizard allows Crop and Resize effects only. In future versions we will add another effects support. We are going to post the Image Upload Wizard Sample next week.
Sincerely yours,

Hello,

Wizard sample is ready to be shown but there are some problems with installation under IE 6.0 so we are making some changes now to fix this issue. I have made some screenshots to show how it looks like now.

Crop feature is not available in the recent version of Image Uploader. It was implemented in fork of main branch (so called "Image Uploader Wizard" project).

We plan to implement it after version 6.0 release.

When will the new version of Image Uploader with the crop option be available?

Will the new wersion include automatic cropping? I am asking about the sixth option "Crop" in ImageUploader.UploadThumbnailFitMode, which would crop thumbnails into the exact sizes of ImageUploader.UploadThumbnailWidth and ImageUploader.UploadThumbnailHeight.
