Ali’s Thumbnail Plugin

Filed under: — Carthik @ 11:19 am

Ali’s Thumb-in-post plugin allows you to include some fancy tag+info and the GD library to create thumbnails for a picture, when the thumbnails does not already exist.
<thumb>fullsizeimage.jpg?cap=This is a caption.</thumb>
in your post will create a thumbnail of fullsizeimage.jpg complete with the caption “This is a caption”.
It resizes gifs, jpegs and pngs, as it uses GD (GD’s resizing looks kind of ugly at times, I should say). I do not know if lets you decide the size of the resized image.
Neat, eh?

  1. The resizing can look ugly if imagecreate() is used. If you use imagecreatetruecolor() resizing will be smooth, but GD > 2.0.1 is required.
