Library WideImage (lib_wideimage)

Is a famous PHP library for manipulating images. WideImage is a lot better than TimThumb for that job,.

Note that Joomla 2.5&160; though JImage support images manipulations, this new extension will let you the choice to use JImage or WideImage. It support both!

Note that Joomla 2.5&160; though JImage support images manipulations, this new extension will let you the choice to use JImage or WideImage. It support both!
Attention JImage do not support manipulation of remote file. If your articles, in introtext or fulltext,&160; have images not located on your Joomla host, it will be better to use WideImage.
Due to an error in the Joomla platform < 11.4, you can not install twice (update) the extension&160; com_cedthumbnails, in Joomla 2.5 this is running correctly in all previous version you’ll get this error: JLibraryManifest::$libraryname already in Tracker http://t.co/LPhupqnk. A workaround is to run the sql query delete from xx_extensions where name = ‘’wideimage” and type=’library’; before updating.&160;
