Edit images directly in Joomla. After installing/activating the plugin in Joomla, an new "Edit Image" link has appeared below every image in the Media Manager. The "Edit Image" link has also been added to the lightbox that´s shown when clicking on the image icon below the article text editor in backend and frontend editing.

Some of the features:
Image resizing and cropping with drag and drop.
Support for PNG, GIF and JPEG images.
Image resizing.
Image effects like grayscale and contrast.
Image rotating
Image transparency is kept
Language support (possible to add your own language file, currently translated to: Arabic, Brazilian portuguese, Bulgarian, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Latin american spanish, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian (latin), Slovak, Spanish and Swedish).
Every action it´s done with Ajax.

From version 2.0 image rotating and effects doesn´t require that GD is bundled with PHP. But then image rotating and effects will run much slower. So it´s still recommended to use the bundled version of GD.

Thanks for the developer, easy to install and simple user interface, i recommend it.

This is a very useful image tool and it integrates with the joomla media manager. I will probably get the pro version to make use of the extra features. Well done guys!

PHP Image Editor

Been using this image editor for a while. The only quirk I have found is the image sizing of transparent png files. One always end up with a black background after a resizing. Otherwise, this have been a pretty good extension.

Owner's reply: Hi there!

I have now released a new version: PHP Image Editor Lite Joomla. It keeps transparency for both png and gif images. Maybe you whould consider a new rating now? :)

I have been looking for an extension like this for a long time! I've tried others, but just after 5 minutes I'm impressed with the extension. The free version gives a basic user exactly what they need a way to upload an image, resize, and save. If you need more features you can buy the pro version for about $20 bucks (USD).

Message to the developer: Anyone that complains about this extension are just haters! Just like it's almost guaranteed that the sun is going to come up everyday, HATERS will HATE everyday. Great job and do not let any negative reviews bother you.

I installed the "pro" version and I am blown away. Fantastic job! Easy install, and very intuitive. I do a lot of websites for folks who are not super savvy and tools like this just make it so much easier for them to maintain their own stuff without calling me! Nicely done!

The ultimate aid

Now my community members can do even more for themselves - no longer any need to send me their pics to crop, re-size, edit for them.

So easy to install and use - excellent and so much needed - thanks.
