The last piece of easy to use goodness I have been working on is the photo editing functionality. When PagePlay first launched it would automatically resize your photos to the width of your template and you could edit the title and alternative text, but the photo would just be a resized version of what you uploaded and the thumbnail version would just be square versions of that photo.
The new photo editing toolbar allows you to select which part of the photo you want to use for each version needed on the site. You can choose your thumbnail, your content (standard) version and then when the new pageitems come in such as photobanner you will be able to crop again from the original for them.
So if you are looking for an image cropper and you already know a little about the jQuery library I suggest you give jCrop a look.
I originally wrote this article in November 2008. That’s quite a while back so be sure to check for newer cropping plugins including:
jCrop (still available)
