Cropping Thumbnails
Location - Sets

When adding a new set, under the sub-section "Add Preview Thumbnail" you'll see a checkbox marked "Select and Crop Thumbnail." If this box is checked, clicking the Add/Edit Entry button at the bottom of the page will then load the Select a Thumbnail to Crop page.

When on the main Sets listing page, next to each set you'll see the word "Thumbs." Click this and on the following page, click "Select and Crop a Thumb from This Set" to load the Select a Thumbnail to Crop page.

The resulting page is a grid of small preview thumbnails representing each image in the selected set of photos. Clicking a thumbnail will load the Thumb Cropper utility page. Here you will see options for changing the image ratio, coordinates and pixel dimensions.

By default the cropper is setup to capture thumbnails in a size that corresponds to the Preview Thumb Height and Width specified on the Setup page.

On the Set Preview page, clicking + Crop Thumb will load the Thumb Cropper utility page.
Here you will see options for changing the image ratio, coordinates and pixel dimensions.

Cropping the photo will overwrite the existing thumbnail image. This action cannot be undone.

Priority Fields:
The priority field is used to assign priorities to preview thumbnails. Priorities can be used to determine the listing/display order of thumbnails on a page. We also use priority to manage multiple thumbnail sizes. For example, there might be a large and small thumbnail that represents each set. The priority value lets us display the correct sized photo in the intended location on a site.
