I would like to build a functionality that gives the user the option to pick a image width and heigt, or for example (small, medium and large) and use these values in my template to crop the image to te specified size.

I have absolutely no clue on how to do this and als haven't found anything on the internet yet.

Does someone know if this is possible and how to do it? Basically it should be a croppedImage function which support variable input.

Thanks in advance.

There a few ways to approach this. Heres one

class UserImage extends Image {

private static $db = array(
'UserHeight' => 'Int',
'UserWidth' => 'Int

public function CroppedUserImage(){
return $this->CroppedImage($this->UserHeight, $this->UserWidth);

Then in a template

<% loop UserImages %>
<% end_loop %>
