Automatically manipulate images on your web server

Why manipulate images on the server?

  • Automatically crop and resize images to reduce the admin overhead of uploading multiple sizes.
  • Watermark or otherwise manipulate images to protect copyright.
  • Automatically extract front covers from PDFs to create thumbnails.

Managed image library
The Populate CMS features an image library. All uploaded images are stored in here and are automatically resized into each size required e.g. thumbnail, nail and supersize. These can then be manually cropped if required. Completing this optimisation of each image size improves delivery of the pages by only delivering images at the size required, this helps with SEO by keeping the page load time as low as possible.
