- Adds an Image Editor link near the image widget allowing the user to rotate, flip, blur, compress, change contrast & brightness, sharpen, add drop shadows, crop, resize an image, save as, and apply sepia. Was the first attemp to enhance Plone image editing options but, let’s face it, who wants to use a user interface à la GIMP these days?
- Integrates Aviary, FotoFlexer and Pixlr into Plone. Unfortunately, Aviary support was broken when we test it and it was the only service we wanted to use. On the other side, creating a new package with support only for Aviary allow us better control of its features.
- Allows images to be manually cropped using Jcrop, a jQuery image cropping plugin. This package aims to be THE cropping solution for Plone that just works ™. Unfortunately, the package only use case is cropping on the scales given by plone.app.imaging and not on the original image.
