Good extension

This is perfect for if you have users that upload images into content pages and their images are sometimes too big. You can size the images right in the browser. No need to ask users if they have a photo editor installed on their computer.

I subscribed to the JCK Editor site primarily so I could use this plugin. Once I got everything installed I discovered that this plugin's U/I is inconsistent with the rest of the editor and it doesn't respect the editor's security settings. It does not use the extended file browser (which I also subscribed to get) and, even worse, it completely ignores the security settings you put in place such as restricting uploads to use folders. Several users are inquired about this on their forums and the replies have been "we are working on it" but the replies are quite dated.

Owner's reply: Dear Rgabbard, We have taken note of your review and have now tied this plug-in into the editor’s core “User Folder” option, which is what I think you are talking about when you mentioned security.

This plugin comes with its own image manager which is used for uploading and editing images. Admittedly, Its GUI is not accessible via the image plug-in (as the other file managers are) but nerveless is still a very useful plug-in of the editor.

As this has been misunderstood, I have added a note about this on the listing and now will release this plug-in to the community for free as a gesture of goodwill.
