Is there a way to resize an image using the com.day.cq.wcm.foundation.Image class? I wanted to extend the foundation image componet and have it resize to a specific height and width. Is there a way to change the size of the image before you call image.draw(out) ?
Try using ImageHelper to get a resized layer & then apply
You also don't want to insert you resizing efforts prior to calling the image.draw method. The draw method doesn't actually render the image, it draws the HTML img tag that your components print out. If you were to use the ImageHelper to get the layer and resize it that would not actually change the size of the image.
Now that img tag will contain a URL to the image, and that URL will generally look something like this (unless you have customized your image components):
This URL is going to trigger a script or servlet that will be responsible for rendering the image. In the example above because the textimage component extends the parbase component and because URL includes the img selector it will end up triggering the servlet at /libs/foundation/components/parbase/img.GET.java. If you go into CRXDE Lite you can go to this file and look at the source code of this servlet and see an example of how it uses the layer to resize the image if that author edited the image in the smart image widget.
You can also see example of servlets that resize and image ot specific preset sizes (as you want to do) you can look at /apps/geometrixx-outdoors/components/product/image/thumbnail.GET.java and /apps/geometrixx-outdoors/components/product/image/nav.GET.java.
So what you would want to do is something like this:
That should result in an image URL that looks like /path/to/your/page/_jcr_content/par/textimage/image.bar.jpg/132394752 0848.jpg
Those steps aren't tested - so I may have missed something or mistyped something, but it should point you in the right direction.
