Some of the images on my site will be used in multiple sizes and aspect ratios. I would like for the client to only have to upload one version of each image (the original size) and have the site automatically size and crop the images according to the location requirements. However, one of the aspect ratios is a very wide and short image (let's call it a "banner"). I am able to get CE Image to display the image in the proper dimensions, but it crops off the bottom and top of the image and saves a strip from the middle. Most of the time that's just fine, but some of the images don't lend themselves well to that particular cropping (subject matter is off-center). Right now, I got around this by adding an additional file field for the client to crop the image manually and then upload it for the page banner. Is there a way instead to do this with only one image being uploaded but allowing the client to specify the region of the image to use for the page banner? Something like jCrop? Is there an add-on that with this feature?
I am using Assets and CE Image.
