Uploading Images from Frontend and Resizing

    Hello all.

    I've been working with a great plugin for the last few days which help reduce the size of my images and thus help speed up my site - fantastic. It is http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/imsanity/

    Now, it automatically resizes images for ones uploaded to posts and pages, or directly to the media library, but not for images uploaded from the frontend via a gravity form. I have to manually resize these using the bulk resize image function with the Imsanity plugin.

    I raised this with the plugin developer, and he mentioned the wp_handle_upload function which would enable both Gravity Forms and Imsanity to talk to each other. Is this possible?

    Here is the discussion http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-imsanity-resizing-images-automatically-from-frontend-uploads?replies=2

    Thanks. Gavin.

  2. I've brought this issue to the attention of the developers.

    However, right now, you could use the gform_after_submission hook to run the bulk resize functionality on the uploaded images.

  3. I would be hesitant to reuse one of WordPress' hooks as that might have negative side-effects. It would work nicely for this scenario, I agree, but it may not work so well for others that don't intend to change the files uploaded from Gravity forms.

    Hi Alex - could there not be an option added to the File Upload field. I'm no coder so haven't a clue myself :)

  5. This feature does seem useful. I will bring it up to the team and see if it is something we can add in the future versions.
