This project will serve as an add-on to Drupal 7's Media module, to allow users to generate different versions of an image without having different variations of an image in the library.
For instance, if you want to be able to crop an image in different ways in different parts of the site without having several crops on the same image cluttering up your library, this module can help you do that. Ultimately, it will provide instance-based transformations of images, allowing you to specify the following attributes when rendering the image:
- Horizontal or vertical flipping
- ImageCache Action-based presets
- Server-based scaling
Development will start on editing transformations on inline images (in the WYSIWYG browser) and once that is completed, will continue to transformations with field-based Media instances.
I only have limited time to work on this, however work is being done. For details regarding how this project came to be, click here #969284: Media Image Transform (formerly Cropping).
