    Resize and crop images

    Can anyone recommend a really easy to instal and use script (preferably cheap or free) that allows you to resize and crop an image and which can be integrated into a cms. If it allowed upload that would be a bonus.
    The cms will be used by someone who is unfamiliar with image manipulation.

    The image has to be a particular ratio as it is for a slideshow.

    Any suggestions would be really appreciated.

    You may need to find something tailored for the CMS you are using. What one is it?

    Often an off the shelf CMS will have native functionality, or a plugin, for doing something like this. There are editors you can use like CK Editor, but I don't think you can crop and resize images like that. So what you want is a plugin that can be integrated into any CMS that has this feature.

    A quick Google brought up JCrop, a jQuery script that it seems you can use for this purpose.

    This is the site: Jcrop - Deep Liquid

    And here's a video demo: jCrop Demo

    I'm sure there must be more options out there, though.

    There seem to be a lot of JQuery based scripts that can do this but the problem I am finding is that whereas they allow the user to crop and resize, they either are difficult for a novice computer user to use or don't allow the crop tool to retain a ratio.

    Not sure how you can do crop with PHP but I use these 2 classes in my project for uploading and image resizing.

    Uploading: PHP: File Upload Script (HTML Form + PHP Handler Class)
    Image Resizing: PHP: Resize Image and Store to File

    Really easy to use. Hope they help.
    I blog about making websites, technically.
    Online image converter - all formats that you can think of.
