TITAN CMS - Image Size Availability

An image size is defined by its name. The name is the value of the <Image> tag. The image must be a valid XML element name.

Overview

An image size is defined by its name. The name is the value of the <Image> tag. The image must be a valid XML element name. That is, it must begin with a letter, contain only letters and digits and have no spaces.

Steps
  1. Select the Titan Administration module.
  2. Click + for File Piles in left navigation tree.
  3. Click your File Pile folder.  *The right pane details for the file pile will display.
  4. Scroll to Image Size Availability.
  5. Enter the Image Size Availability.
    1. *Example:
      1. <Image Size="160" PhotoSmall="1" Freeform="1">Small</Image><Image Size="320" PhotoMedium="1" Content="1">Medium</Image><Image Size="640" PhotoLarge="1" Link="1">Large</Image><Image Width="80" Height="80" Clip="Max" Browse="1" Thumbnail="1">Thumbnail</Image>
  6. To define the physical size of each image size, use the following attributes on the <Image> tag:
    1. Size when specified indicates the pixel length of the largest dimension. The secondary dimension will be determined to maintain the original aspect ratio.
    2. Height indicates the height dimension of the image size. Ignored if Size is specified.
    3. Width indicates the width dimension of the image size. Ignored if Size is specified.
    4. Clip is used if both Height and Width are specified and the aspect ratio of Height to Width does not match the original image. In that case which ever dimension is specified here will be clipped (cropped) to avoid distorting the image. Case sensitive values are Height, Width, or Max (e.g., use the largest dimension).
  7. The following attributes must be assigned to one and only one image size. As described below, each of the following attributes is used to indicate that a given image size should be used in the specified location within the workstation. If you declare more than one image size for a given attribute, which size will be used is undefined; failure to assign an attribute to a given image size will result in workstation errors.
    1. Freeform when set to 1 indicates that this size should be the default size dropped into the Freeform editor.
    2. Browse when set to 1 indicates that this size should be the default size displayed within the ContentMgmt's Results tab.
    3. Content when set to 1 indicates that this size should be the default size displayed within the ContentMgmt's Content tab.
    4. Thumbnail when set to 1 indicates that this size will be the default size for the File Picker dialog used by the Properties tab
    5. PhotoLarge, PhotoMedium, PhotoSmall when set to 1 indicates that the size should be the default size used by the Photo Block.
  8. Note: Changing this setting will only affect images uploaded or modified after the change. To make the change retroactive, you must run the Rebuild Image Sizes background task across your file pile. Since this change is a global system change you must manually restart your background service before you run the Rebuild Image Sizes background task.
