Image re-sizer's dynamic folder creation...

Image re-sizer's dynamic folder creation...

Hey Guys the folder creation system in Image re-sizer needs some refinement....

The location of the folders automatically generated by image re-sizer makes the site extremely cluttered, and puts them in a lot of different places when you use the extension many times in a site... a simple dialog box with directory placement would be ideal, so the images could be managed easier, or simply create a "common directory" that image re-sizer will always find and use.
The reason I suggest this is that if you happen to be using image re-sizer for dynamically generated things, the folders and images remain in directories that don't need to remain on the server... to be able to set a script to remove these files similar to removing session files on the server becomes very difficult to maintain.

I use a cron job and a delete script to empty the image_cache folder every day. I can specify a specific folder within the image_cache folder if I choose.

If you're not familiar with this would be happy too send it to you?

All the best
