I am using imagegallery module.

an admin user who does not know much about image manipulation uploaded a load of HUGE images that broke CMS and main site. I know that i can increase memory in _config.php but I just wondered if there was a way to optimize these images on upload to avoid this problem. I dont think there is.... but just in case.

Otherwise I guess I will have to teach them how to use photshop :)

You would use the onAfterUpload() hook for that. Unfortunately, Uploadify doesn't trigger that hook, but I will add in that change today, because it should do so.

Silverstripe tips, tutorials, screencasts, and more.

Hey Unclecheese.

that is great. I will definately utilize this once done... much appreciated and should help the editors of the site i built a lot.

I don't suppose you could let me know when you have done this? Otherwise I will check out Uploadify over the next week or so.

Top man!

Hi Guys,
Have you been able to come up with a solution for this?

I basically have the same issue. I'd like to just upload images that are over 5mbs but automatically reduce the filesize to 3mbs.

Is there a way to do that?
