Imagecrop 5.x-1.0 is out

A first official release of imagecrop is out today. This module uses the power of imagecache 2 which let other modules define their own image actions. Imagecrop enables an action where you can crop your images with a javascript toolbox as long as a preset has the javascript crop action. The main difference with projects like eyedrop or imagefield_crop is that it doesn't provide it's own widget to upload images, instead it just 'hooks' into image modules/fields. Supported modules so far are image, imagefield and node_images. The first release has been tested in a production environment for about 2 months now and suffers no real bugs anymore except some browser caching problems now and then on IE, so this is also a call for reviewers and other smart people to test and (hopefully) submit patches! I've prepared another screencast to see it in action on the image and node images module.

Of course, a better way than looking at a screencast is to download it yourself and test it! Patches are even better. Some suggestions: browser caching problems, hook_imagecrop so your own custom module can benefit from it etc..

oh yay, this looks great!

Hopefully, I can properly kill eyedrop which never really got out of prototype due to my aweful js skills and lack of time. Great to see you are leveraging the jquery_interface project too.

I look forward to having a play.

Install the latest dev version (new release 5.x-1.1 will be out in a few weeks), that fixes the problem. You'll have to disable and enable the module again.

Question: are there any docs, and is there a way to force a square. I thought it might be by holding the shift key down, but that seems to force the dimentions of the image.

Thanx -
