PWT Image 1.2.0 released - New features, improvements & translations

Friday, 20 July 2018

We are pleased to announce the availability of PWT Image 1.2.0. We keep improving PWT Image by adding new features, improvements, fixes and translations. Joomla image management is getting better and better!

In this version, we have added several new features and options for the image cropper. You can now use zoom buttons that also allow you to crop outside the selected image. For the area outside the image, you can configure a background color that will be used to fill the background. 

Furthermore, we have made improvements and fixed several reported bugs. We could also add the Catalan, Dutch, French and Thai translations thanks to the translators of our extensions!

Test how PWT Image works!

On our demo website, you can test all of our extensions. Create an article and select the images under the "Images and links" tab of the article edit screen to see PWT Image in action.
