Saturday, 20 October 2018

We are pleased to announce the availability of PWT Image 1.3.0. In this version, we're introducing two new plugins: PWT Image for Joomla Custom Fields & PWT Image for RSForm!Pro. Profiles can now also be assigned to specific Joomla content categories. 

PWT Image for Joomla Custom Fields

With this new plugin you can now use PWT Image as a Joomla Custom Field. Select the PWT Image profile that needs to be used and add the fields to any content that supports the Joomla Custom Fields system. Editors will enjoy adding images without the need of image cropping software.

PWT Image for RSForm!Pro

Have you been struggling with user-submitted images in your RSForm!Pro forms? Do you need your users to submit images with a specific ratio and size? You will love the PWT Image plugin for RSForm!Pro. With this integration, you can make image handling within your forms user-friendly, and force people to submit images based on your specifications.

Users can select an image from their computer and crop the image to the configured ratio. When uploading the image will be resized and stored at the location set in the PWT Image profile settings.

Assign profiles to specific content categories

Another great new feature of PWT Image is the new option in the PWT Image profiles to assign a profile to one or more specific content categories. In this way, you can use multiple image profiles for your content and use different ratio and sizes depending on the content category.
