Upload and resize to multiple images

Upload and resize to multiple images

Hi

I was wondering if anyone knows a way to use DFP to upload an image but create multiple files from this one upload that changes the size of each picture. e.g.

Upload file A
Upload creates a thumbnail (puts this in thumbnail folder)
Upload creates a medium size image (puts this in medium folder)
Upload creates a large size image (puts this in the large folder)

I dont know if DFP can be changed to do this. I know WebAssist are working on a new DFP but that proberbly wont be for a while.

If DFP cannot do this then does anyone know a program that can? I also want the uploaded file to be instered into a database (just like DFP does using the Server File Name in the bindings)

Also, does WebAssist know when there next DFP will be availiable as I have seen many posts in the forum (mainly in the old forum) for new features, this should be easier now you are only supporting PHP.

Thanks in advance

The development of this product and features is complete. We are completing QA and then it will be released. It will likely still be a month or so before it is publicly available, but it will accomplish the described result if you aren't too pressed for time.

There is a hand-coded example of this in the power store as well.. basiclly you can use the gd2 library to manipulate the images after they are uploaded, but you would have to do it by hand to integrate into DFP v1.

Thanks for the reply Ray,

I am happy to hear that the new version is coming soon. I have been trying to get something like your DFP in other programs but no luck.

I will wait for it to come out now.

Thanks

Carl

There is a DW Extension in DMX zone, called "Smart Image Processor PHP 2"
Link is go?13327
Has some very nice features but you also need Pure PHP Upload 2 from the same company to make it work. So this will cost some $124 for this.

Our extension update to DFP for this functionality is complete and in the testing phase. It should be available soon for php users.

This release will primarily include uploading and creating multiple copies of a single upload with different formats and the addition of a progress indicator while the form is submitting.

We are not working on delete or multiple record updates functionality. I am not at liberty to give release dates, but it is currently in QA and will be released when QA is complete and we have a stable build.
