You can see example at the existing image component by adding more aspect ratios using the "cropConfig" node. Please reference one under - "/libs/cq/packaging/components/pack/definition/dialog/items/tabs/items/tab3/cropConfig". In this manner, you can add in more option and specify the required height/width.
I don't seem to have that path in my CQ installation. Is there a documentation page that outlines this feature? Can I make it so that the crop aspect ratio is mandatory or automatically applied to an image with the ability to change the crop location later?
I think you can modify the workflow model to apply aspect ratio & some custamization to apply later. I will do little research to see if it exists in cq 5.5 & to confirm if it is lacking documentation for this feature.
Creating a different renditions (or different size images) at the time of uploading dam asset can be achieved by modifying the
existing DAM workflow.
Follow the given steps to modify DAM workflow.
- Go to workflow console
- Go to Models Tab
- Find "DAM Update Asset" workflow and edit the workflow It will take you to the detailed page.
- Find "Thumbnail creation" process step, Double click on it
- A dialog will open; Go to Second Tab (Process). There you will find "Arguments" for aspect ratios of images
- Here you can specify Aspect Ratio at which you want to auto crop the dam assest while uploading.
- Click Save.
These steps are same for both the CQ version 5.4 and 5.5 .
It seems that when I use the thumbnail creation it will crop the entire image to fit into that aspect ratio. The image will have extra white space on the top and bottom if I try and crop to an protrait landscape rather than cropping out the image.
