Magic image resize is a content plugin for automatic scaling content images to a web friendly size. Magic image resize does not work destructive. It stores the resized images into .thumb folders inside your image directories. Only the source is replaced. You can still use responsive classes like img-fluid or img-responsive.


img src="images/myLargeImg.jpg" class="img-fluid" data-resize="crop" width="250" height="128"

This will crop a image to exactly 250 x 128 pixels and put it into images/.thumbs/250-128/myLargeImg.jpg

The html Image src attribute will be replaced with the urls to a scaled version in a .thumbs - folder.

Images can be scaled, cropped or filled

  • data-resize="scale": Default value. Scale the Image and keep aspect.
  • data-resize="crop": Crop the and center the image to the exact size. Ignore aspect.
  • data-resize="fit": Fit image to size and fill the rest with background color.

If no special width or height attributes are provided Magic image resize uses the plugin settings.
The plugin will be activated automatically during installation.


Version 1.1: file changes are detected by a fast hash algorithm. If images are replaced by an image with the same name. The thumbs are refreshed automatically.
Version 1.2: Optimized WebP format supported for modern browsers
Version 1.3: WebP scaling support and better handling of illegal file format and invalid images
Version 1.4: Fixed transparency issue with PNG and GIF Files

The document is simple but I cannot follow the steps to make the plugin working. Maybe provide more screenshot.
