Creating image sizes


In This Guide

After a user uploads an image, Brightspot crops out various regions depending on the context. For example, in the context of an author’s bio page, the crop region is typically large; in the context of a byline, the crop region is typically small.

The easiest way to instantiate image sizes is in a theme’s configuration file _config.json; for details, see Image sizes. You can also instantiate image sizes using the classes ImageSize and ImageSizeBuilder.

Example 1: Listing image sizes by display name

ImageSize imageSize = ImageSize.builder()
    .internalName("landscape-large-50x50")
    .displayName("Landscape large 150x100") 
    .width(150) 
    .height(100)
    .build();
  • Sets the image size’s display name to Landscape large 150x100.
  • Sets the image’s aspect ratio to 1.5:1 (= 150 ÷ 100). At run time, Brightspot lists all image sizes by aspect ratio in the image editor. If you have another image size with the same aspect ratio, such as 300 × 200, Brightspot lists it with all other image sizes having aspect ratio 1.5:1.

Example 2: Listing image sizes by group name

ImageSize imageSize = ImageSize.builder()
    .group("Rectangles") 
    .width(200)
    .height(100)
    .build();
  • Assigns this image size to a group Rectangles. At run time, Brightspot displays in the image editor only one thumbnail for all image sizes with the same group name.
