Rails Helper Faux CropFork on Github
This plugins resizes and positions the image inside a container to act as if it had been cropped. It finds the largest centered square area on the original image and fits it into the thumbnail wrapper. You can also pass crop coordinates as you would do with an image processor.
If you rather render the necessary markup from a jquery plugin, check JqueryFauxCrop
Basic Usage: Centered thumbnail
<%= faux_crop( "example_image.jpg", # image path 800, # image width 406, # image height 200 # target size ) %>
Using Crop Coordinates
<%= faux_crop( "example_image.jpg", # image path 800, # image width 406, # image height 200, # target size 40, # crop x offset 140, # crop y offset 130 # crop size ) %>
- Tested on the good browsers and IE8+
- Meant for square thumbnails
- It's not responsive
- This plugin is a just a proof of concept.
