ImageField that crops images that do not fit the expected ratio

Project Description

This will resize all images to the dimensions you specify, but instead of stretching, it will scale the images and crop the overhang.

For some examples how to configure CroppingImageField and result pictures see docs/examples.txt or the Project page on

To use the field:

from croppingimage.field import CroppingImageField

    name = 'image',
    long_edge_size = 600,
    short_edge_size = 450,

    # use this if you don't want portrait images to scale to (450x600) (see docs/examples.txt)
    force_format = 'landscape',

    sizes= {'large'  : (600, 450),
            'medium' : (300, 225),
            'thumb'  : (125,  94),},
    widget = ImageWidget(label= "Image",)

This will create an attribute called “image” with the sizes thumb, medium, large as given.

This will be accessible as object/image, and the sizes as:

  • object/image_thumb
  • object/image_medium
  • object/image_large
