Image Magazine

ImageMag lets you arrange different images into several nice layouts.

Project Description

it is inspired directly from this article :
http://alistapart.com/articles/magazinelayout

ImageMag content type acts both as a folder and as an image.

you populate it with 2 to 4 images, and optionnaly select a layout.

options include width, background color, padding and margin, and layout mode

ImageMag then merges the images into a layout while keeping the aspect ratios.

You can then use and call your ImageMag as a standard ploneImage, this means you can :

  • use instance/image_thumbnail, instance/image_large, and so on suffixes to call its different sizes
  • call it directly from kupu to illustrate your articles (see readme.txt)
