Typically images are organized in galleries, that offer a thumbnail collection to the content manager in order to keep the selection as simple as possible.
OpenCms from version 6 features integrated image scaling and resizing. This way it's easy to manipulate commonly used image formats like JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIF etc. to make sure the output in a template is always of the required size, to generate thumbnails in overview lists and more. Additional image processing filters like "add drop shadow to image" are also available.
Optionally, images that are uploaded to the virtual file system of OpenCms by content editors can be automatically rescaled to a definable maximum size in the OpenCms configuration.
Template developers can use the OpenCms taglib or API to have full control over images in JSP templates or other dynamic pages showing processed pictures.
