Does anyone know if it is possible to integrate Liferay and ImageMagick in such a way that someone could upload an image and have imagemagick automatically create multiple versions of the image in different sizes and then put them in Liferay's document and media folder?

Thanks,

Brian

It's already supported, even w/o imagemagick.

Check out portal.properties to see how you can define the alternate sizes that Liferay should use when adding images.

Thanks. That would be great to configure that.

However, I just went through portal.properties and didn't find anything that seemed to enable or configure this option. I also read

http://www.liferay.com/documentation/liferay-portal/6.1/user-guide/-/ai/images

and couldn't find any information on it. Does anyone know what property controls this?

Look for the ig.image.custom1.max.dimension comment that is in the portal.properties file. Basically it looks like it doesn't do width/height scaling, just scaling to a max dimension (of either height or width). It applies to all images loaded into the image gallery...

I think that will work great!

Here is some additional documentation I found for anyone who finds this in the future...
