Image Resizer + HTML Editor??

Image Resizer + HTML Editor??

Sorry if I missed this information.

Will Image Resizer work on a page that is updated and formatted by an HTML Editor backend?

I have a client who edits and updates a couple pages on their site with a CMS built with DA and HTML E. They upload full size images and don't seem to want to resize them beforehand.
I know I can setup the Advanced Editor but I was hoping for a more automatic solution for them.

Since the images they use are uploaded at full size (some as large as 4,000 px wide) I wanted to size them all down to around 800 pixels wide automatically so that the page loads faster. And still not interrupt the clients formatting.

I thought maybe this would be a great use for Image Resizer. Could I include it on the public viewable page and set the images to resize to a specific size rather than how each image is set by the HTML? Or will only size them to their specified HTML sizes?

Thanks,
TroyD

No, image resizer will not work within HTML editor in this way. The image would have to be resized in the html or css before image resizer would kick in and optimize it as a smaller image.

You could specify a smaller size with html editor and use image resizer to create a version that would be quicker to download based on the reduced size but you can't simply specify a maximum dimensions and have it resize automatically, but that is an interesting feature request we could consider if it is a common use case people are looking for.

Thats something I would like to see also. When you give clients the ability to edit contenet they often upload images that are way ove the top and then detroy the layouts etc.. So being able to set a max size would be fantastic and I thought IR could do that my mistake.
