Fly Dynamic Image Resizer

Omschrijving

Check out the Github Repository ♥

One of the biggest problems theme developers face is the problem of multiple image sizes. When you upload an image in the media library, WordPress automatically creates thumbnails based on all the image sizes you have defined using add_image_size() whether you want to use them or not. So the vast majority of the images in wp-content/uploads directory are a waste, and are never used. This is not the optimum way of creating image sizes.

With this plugin, you can create as many image sizes as you want without the guilt of unnecessary image sizes taking up your disk space!

This is because the images created using this plugin are dynamically created when the image is called for the first time, rather than when it is uploaded. You can also delete the cached images for each image individually, or all the cached images.

How this plugin works

  1. You either define an image size in your code using the fly_add_image_size() function, or directly call the image size in the code
  2. The admin uploads the image in the media library, but the fly dynamic images are not created
  3. The user visits the page for the first time, and the image is dynamically created and is stored
  4. The user visits the page again for the second time, and the stored version of the image is served

Handleiding

Here are some functions and example code to get you started!

fly_get_attachment_image_src( $attachment_id, $size, $crop )

  • attachment_id (integer)(required) : The ID of the image attachment
  • size (string/array)(required) : Either the name of the pre-defined size defined using fly_add_image_size, or an array with the width and height. Ex: array( 500, 500 )
  • crop (boolean/array)(optional) : Whether the image should be cropped, or the crop position

Returns an array:

array(
    'src' => string,
    'width' => integer,
    'height' => integer
)

 

fly_get_attachment_image( $attachment_id, $size, $crop, $attr )

  • attachment_id (integer)(required) : The ID of the image attachment
  • size (string/array)(required) : Either the name of the pre-defined size defined using fly_add_image_size, or an array with the width and height. Ex: array( 500, 500 )
  • crop (boolean/array)(optional) : Whether the image should be cropped, or the crop position
  • attr (array)(optional) : An array of attributes. Ex: array( 'alt' => 'Alt text', 'title' => 'Title text', 'class' => 'my-class', 'id' => 'my-id' )

Returns a HTML IMG element string:

<img src="http://yoursite.com/wp-content/uploads/fly-images/10/your-image-500x500-c.jpg" width="500" height="500" alt="Alt text" />

 

Example 1: Pre-defined Image Sizes

In this method, you define as many image sizes as you want in your functions.php file.

if ( function_exists( 'fly_add_image_size' ) ) {
    fly_add_image_size( 'home_page_square', 500, 500, true );
    fly_add_image_size( 'home_page_square_2x', 1000, 1000, true );
    fly_add_image_size( 'cropped_top_left', 1000, 1000, array( 'left', 'top' ) );
}

Now, lets get the post thumbnail using the image sizes we just defined:

<?php echo fly_get_attachment_image( get_post_thumbnail_id(), 'home_page_square' ); ?>

Here’s another way you can do this:

<?php $image = fly_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id(), 'home_page_square' ); echo '<img src="' . $image['src'] . '" width="' . $image['width'] . '" height="' . $image['height'] . '" />'; ?>

Let’s get the image from our example above which has a crop position defined:

<?php echo fly_get_attachment_image( get_post_thumbnail_id(), 'cropped_top_left' ); ?>

 

Example 2: Dynamic Image Sizes

Lets get the post thumbnail using some dynamic image sizes:

<?php echo fly_get_attachment_image( get_post_thumbnail_id(), array( 500, 500 ), true ); ?>

Here’s another way you can do this:

<?php $image = fly_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id(), 'home_page_square', array( 500, 500 ), true ); echo '<img src="' . $image['src'] . '" width="' . $image['width'] . '" height="' . $image['height'] . '" />'; ?>

Lets get the post thumbnail cropped from the bottom right:

<?php echo fly_get_attachment_image( get_post_thumbnail_id(), array( 500, 500 ), array( 'right', 'bottom' ) ); ?>

 

A note on Crop Positions

Crop positions are set using an array. The first parameter of the array needs to be the x-axis crop and the second parameter needs to be the y-axis crop. This feature will not work the other way around.

For example:

fly_get_attachment_image( get_post_thumbnail_id(), array( 500, 500 ), array( 'right', 'bottom' ) ) Will work! 🙂

fly_get_attachment_image( get_post_thumbnail_id(), array( 500, 500 ), array( 'bottom', 'right' ) ) Will not work! 🙁

Beoordelingen

Very, Very Useful!

Since it generates images upon request, another hidden benefit for me has been being able to .gitignore the folder with the generated images. The source images still get added at three different sizes in the media library (which is still useful for things like internal images for blog posts), but a large portion of the images just get ignored by the repo but then re-created by the server when requested.

A true necessity

I’ve been hacking together solutions like this for years. So glad that someone took the time to craft a great and reliable tool like this.

Many thanks and keep up the great work!

Extremely helpful!

this plugin is really easy to use and extremely helpful when creating custom themes.

it deserves 5 stars without hesitation!

thank you for developing it!

Man, you are the best!

Junaid Bhura, thanks a lot for the plugin!

PS I really don’t know why WP itself doesn’t process images that way.
