Dynamically Resize Helix Blog Image Upon Upload

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
Greetings,

Could you please consider a way to dynamically resize the main article blog image for those of us using your great (WP-like) Helix Blog Image feature?

There are various plugins (EIR etc) that act to resize images uploaded to Joomla's default Media Manager, and of course JCE's slick way of resizing images, but Helix Blog Image has nothing. So the user/client must manually resize before upload. What an inconvenience and the reason WP is "eating Joomla's lunch". The system does resize for category view based on template Helix settings -- small, thumbnail, medium, large -- so why not for the main article image when using Helix?

Solutions have been discussed here...

Thanks for considering.
Anton

Hi there,

Thanks for your query to sharing with us. Your query is very important to us. Already Helix blog option has image size to crop. Please follow the process to change the Helix blog option image size change.

Hi Toufiq,

The main image for an article, when Helix Blog Image is selected then an image uploaded, does not resize. So if a client uploads a 4mb image at 4000x3000 it remains a 4mb 4000x3000 image. Setting small,thumbnail, medium, and large makes no impact on the main image.

See my client's site at...
https://sainthedwigchurch.com/pastor-s-blog/homily-sunday-aug-18-2019

The main image is "browser scaled" to 1140xwhatever but the actual image remains full size -- and the browser must download the full 4mb. That image in the article above had to be manually resized/optimized to 1140X684 | JPG 200kb.

Hi there,

Thanks for your explanation. There is no way to crop option for the details page image. There is cropping option for the listing page. Helix3 doesn't have this option. Helix ultimate exist this feature.

-Thanks
