I'm reviewing Silverstripe for use in the NHS (national health service) in the UK.
I'm concerned about simplicity for users and performance, so I'm testing out the resize image functions on a few different opensource CMS's. This, Joomla, Drupal, maybe one other.
I tried the standard files and images tab. Worked OK, but was sad that you couldn't specify the pixel size manually and rather had to drag the corner anchors which could take half a dozen attempts to nail the correct pixel width.
Ideally I would like something akin to the facebook image uploader (I know its a java clientside thing), but I could imagine lots of instances where users are trying to upload 3, 5, or 10mb images up for the intranet/internet. This might kill our bandwidth and server-space.
Is there a module that has a client-side resizing tool? So we could limit images to a max of say 600px wide or high...
I thought I saw mention of a flash uploader too.
p.s. the right-hand side image uploader failed to do anything when I clicked the 'upload' link. Tested FFÂ£ and IE7.
