ResizR: Online image manipulation

Category: Showcase

Resizr is a simple one page image resizing tool that lets you upload a file or give a URL to the file to resize and/or rotate.

You will instantly recognize the Script.aculo.us effects as they Effect.Appear before your eyes.

A “live preview” of the image you’d be generating would be helpful (client-side), then the button (which though amusing the first time, doesn’t need the YFT effect when clicked) could return the server-processed image.

Another tool that will do this is the Iconator Resizer. It’s not as slick, but still does a good job. http://animator.iconator.com/resizulator.php

Agreed. There’s no reason they couldn’t do it for both the resize and rotate operations.

Unfortunately the don’t support anything other than JPEG. But it’s handy if you’re in a rush and want to resize a photo.

I think it’s mostly a waste of time, but sometimes you find yourself on a stripped-down public terminal with only the browser available.

Ew, this thing is kind of overflowing with yellowfade =\

Ooohhhhh… WOW… GDLib or Imagemagick… a basic PHP call to it… with a scriptaculous interface…

Haven’t seen that a million times before…. have we?

Personally.. I’d have put drag-handles on the corners and let them resize it that way..

On MouseUp… get ImageMagick (or whatever) to re-render the image and load it into the page (to get rid of the un-antialiased ‘jaggies’)

I’m not saying it doesn’t look nice.. I’m not saying it doesn’t function well… all I’m saying is… I could build this in half-a-day, effect, back-end script and all… it really is nothing special.

[…] Parece que utiliza los efectos de Script.aculo.us. Una opción interesante cuando no tenemos disponible un editor en la computadora. [Vía Ajaxian] […]

Hey there, there’s also my website, also called Resizr. I do much of the same thing as the aforementioned site, but my site accepts PNG, JPG, and GIF images and outputs in all three, as well. There’s also a realtime preview of image size.
