NAME ^

Catalyst::View::GD::Thumbnail - Catalyst view to resize images for thumbnails.

SYNOPSIS ^

    Create a thumbnail view:

        script/myapp_create view Thumbnail Thumbnail

    Then in your controller:

        sub thumbnail :Local :Args(1) {
                my ($self, $c, $image_file_path) = @_;

                $c->stash->{x}     = 100;    
                # Create a 100px wide thumbnail

                #or

                $c->stash->{y}     = 100;    
                # Create a 100px tall thumbnail

                $c->stash->{image} = $image_file_path;        
                $c->forward('View::Thumbnail');
        }

DESCRIPTION ^

Catalyst::View::GD::Thumbnail resizes images to produce thumbnails, with options to set the desired x or y dimensions. Uses the GD image library for those who are already using something more advanced than Imager.

Options

The view is controlled by setting the following values in the stash:

image

Contains the file path for the full-size source image.

This is a mandatory option.

x

The width (in pixels) of the thumbnail.

This is optional, but at least one of the x or y parameters must be set.

y

The height (in pixels) of the thumbnail.

This is optional, but at least one of the x or y parameters must be set.

Image formats

The generated thumbnails will always be produced in the same format (PNG, JPG, etc) as the source image.

Catalyst::View::GD::Thumbnail uses the Image::Resize module to crop and resize images, so it accept any image format supported by Image::Resize: bmp, gif, jpeg, png, xbm, xpm.

Please see the Image::Resize documentation for more details and installation notes.
