Web Wash: How to Crop Images using Crop API, Image Widget Crop and Focal Point in Drupal 8

Planet Drupal - 18 April 2017 - 10:00am
If you’ve done any Drupal site building, I’m sure you’ve experienced this issue. You create an image style with the “Scale and crop” effect and everything is going great until an editor uploads an image with a different aspect ratio. Now instead of images getting cropped correctly, they’re getting cut in half, or the top part is chopped off, and images are not displaying nicely. You could fix this problem by tweaking the image style to handle different aspect ratios, but it’ll never be the perfect solution. The best option is to crop image directly in Drupal, and this is what you’ll learn today. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to avoid these situations by using Crop API. Now, Crop API doesn’t offer any interface on its own; it’s just an API. The two modules that provide an interface are Image Widget Crop and Focal Point. We’ll take a look at these modules in detail, in this tutorial.

Why I care about the Drupal drama

There’s been a lot said and written about the most recent drama in the Drupal community, quite a few people have asked me why I care. This is hard to answer without sounding flippant in 140 characters, so I’ve taken the time to write another blog post about the topic. This one a little less angry and more reasoned than the first.

Planet Drupal - 18 April 2017 - 8:22am

Attendees to Baltimore's DrupalCon 2017 should check out Xeno Media Strategist Jim Birch's presentation, Bootstrap Paragraphs, on April 26 at 10:45am.

In it, you will learn how to combine the power of the world's most popular front end framework, Bootstrap with Drupal Paragraphs, the powerful module that allows content creators to build layouts and structured pages.

Using the Bootstrap Paragraphs Drupal 8 module, you'll be able to create Bootstrap features like Accordions, Carousels, Modals, Tabs, and Multi-column layouts.  We'll also demonstrate how to harness the power of Drupal referencing Text, Images, Contact Forms, Blocks, and even Views!  We will also review how the module adds different widths and backgrounds which can be modified in the Drupal theme layer.

This presentation will review:
  • Why use the Bootstrap framework?
  • Why use the Paragraphs module?
  • What goes into the different types of bundles?
  • How we add width and background options
  • How to override, and build on top of the defaults
Learning Objectives & Outcomes:

Attendees will come away learning how to build a site using the Bootstrap Paragraphs module, how to customize it in their own themes, and how to use the module as a baseline to develop their own Paragraphs bundle types.
