Don't Understand How To Use Image Resizer

Don't Understand How To Use Image Resizer

Have read this and this and watched this and I still don't understand how to use Image Resizer.

In it's simplest procedure when I pick Resize By as "Fit To Box" I would image another field would display for me to put those dimensions in but it does not. I have gone ahead and kept the defaults and click ok and a small image of 32 by 32 will display. Don't know where that size comes from or how to modify it.

If I try to put an image (say w=485 by h=576) and then click on Image Resizer and try to pick "Fit to Box" I don't get the ability to pick a size. It still retains the larger image. I don't get how to make it smaller.

Also, how would you use Image Resizer for many items on the same page that you want to have all at same small size?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed some light on this subject.

the used by image resizer is set on the image tag.

you first add an image to your page and set the height / width or both.

<img src="path/to/image.jpg" height="32" width="32" />

then apply image resizer to the image tag,

when the page loads, it will generate a new copy of the image using the dimensions in the image tag

OK - I have done that on my own and by what you mention, and if I view image in browser it shows the small size but if I right click on image and go to "View Image" that displays in another browser it still shows the small size and not the original.

I'm not understanding how Image Resizer is any better then just putting the original image on page and modifying the size to something smaller (or creating thumb sizes). When I do put original on page and set size to something small and view in browser and right click, image displays in another browser and it shows original size.

Is their another video that can actually show step-by-step the process of using Image Resizer for singular image and a page that uses many images that you would like to be the same size?

image resizer creates a new copy of the image based on your dimensions automatically and that is the file used by the page.

when you right click and open the image, you are opening the newly created resized image.

you say:

  I'm not understanding how Image Resizer is any better then just putting the original image on page and modifying the size to something smaller (or creating thumb sizes).  

using the original large image and changing the size still loads the large image to the client, the client has to download the large image.

using a thumbnail is preferred.

image resizer automatically generates that thumbnail for you.

if you use the same image on multiple pages all with differant sizes, than you would need to manually generate the thumbnails. say you decide to change the size on one page, you need to generate another copy of the image.

using image resizer does this for you automatically rather than you having to create the thumbnails.
