Advanced Image Manipulation for EE5, EE6, and EE7
JCOGS Image is a simple to use tag based image processing add-on for ExpressionEngine 5, 6 and 7. It is fast, efficient and provides a range of image manipulation options that go beyond those available within EE’s built in image processing services.
Version 1.4 is a major update to the JCOGS Image add-on. For a complete list of the changes introduced for this version see the add-on’s changelog entry. The key new features in this version comprise:
JCOGS Image unlocks a simple upgrade path for existing EE5 and EE6 for sites developed using the CE-Img add-on.
Although based on a completely new image processing code base, JCOGS Image has been designed to have strong compatiblity with CE Image parameters and functions: in many cases it is possible to upgrade an existing site without loss of function simply doing a search / replace to update the tag name used: for example changing
Please Note: A few CE Image functions are not replicated (e.g. ASCIIart) and for some uses (e.g. the pixelate filter) there are some small differences in the output produced. See the documentation for more details.
As of version 1.4.0 JCOGS Image’s minimum plaform requirements have changed.
allow_url_fopen is enabled on the server it is being used on - at least for a short while to allow for license validation to occur. Once validated JCOGS Image will operate normally on servers where this directive is disabled, but with this directive disabled Image will be unable to retrieve remote images.
Note: For use on systems running ExpressionEngine 5 or that need to run php 7.4 or 8.0, you are recommended to use JCOGS Image 1.3.20 (included in distribution zip file); a version that is capable of operating on platforms meeting these lower specifications. As with version 1.4.0, to operate version 1.3.20 your server will need to have some version of the GD/GD2 library installed and the php directive
JCOGS Image support is first class - if you have questions about using JCOGS Image or encounter any kind of issues, JCOGS Design provide rapid and (hopefully) helpful support!
JCOGS Image is regularly updated both to introduce new features and fix bugs. Check out the changelog to see what has happened recently.
