'Transforms' menu in Image and News Item to perform image transformations

Project description


Replaces the “Transform” tab in ATImage with a corresponding “Transform” menu in the “View” tab. The menu is available also for ATNewsItem.


  • Menu available for Image and News Item
  • Performs image transformations with AJAX to prevent reloading the page
  • Degrades gracefully in non-JavaScript browsers
  • i18n support by using atcontentypes and plone i18n domains.
  • Tested in Plone 3.3.5 and Plone 4.0


  • Add collective.atimage.transformmenu to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

    eggs =
  • Tell the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to install a ZCML slug:

    recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
    zcml =
  • Re-run buildout, e.g. with:

    $ ./bin/buildout

You can skip the ZCML slug if you are using Plone 3.3 or if you are going to explicitly include the package from another package’s configure.zcml file.
