Resizes uploaded images and creates multi-size images automatically

Easy Image Resizer is an essential tool for Joomla!, designed to automatically adjust the resolution of images uploaded via the Media Manager or any third-party extensions. This functionality is particularly beneficial when images are uploaded without prior offline processing and are too large in resolution.

In addition to optimising image dimensions, Easy Image Resizer significantly reduces the file size of your images. This profoundly impacts your website's performance, resulting in substantial improvements in page loading times.

The plugin seamlessly integrates into your workflow, executing automatically when images are uploaded via the Media Manager, the 'Image' button in edit mode, or image upload forms facilitated by third-party extensions. By automatically resizing your images, Easy Image Resizer ensures that your website remains efficient and user-friendly, regardless of the volume or source of your image uploads.

  • + Subscriber Interface: The plugin has been rewritten to utilise the subscriber interface, enhancing its integration and performance capabilities.
  • + Improved Pro Security Token validation check. The Pro package contains a token file with an individual security token linked to the user account that is checked against the validation server for authenticity. If the file is missing or the token is invalid, you cannot edit the settings and use the extension. The Pro Security Token field has been extended to handle incorrect tokens and blocked accounts. If you encounter an error message related to the token, download the Pro version with your Pro subscription from the linked download page and install it again!
  • Attention: The Pro extension will not work correctly if the token file or custom field is missing or modified. Never edit or remove the files to ensure correct functionality.
