Edit images directly in Joomla. After installing/activating the plugin in Joomla, an new “Edit Image” link has appeared below every image in the Media Manager. The “Edit Image” link has also been added to the lightbox that´s shown when clicking on the image icon below the article text editor in backend and frontend editing.
Some of the features:
Image resizing and cropping with drag and drop.
Support for PNG, GIF and JPEG images.
Image effects like grayscale and contrast.
Image transparency is kept
Language support (possible to add your own language file, currently translated to: Arabic, Brazilian portuguese, Bulgarian, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Latin american spanish, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian (latin), Slovak, Spanish and Swedish).
Every action it´s done with Ajax.
From version 2.0 image rotating and effects doesn´t require that GD is bundled with PHP. But then image rotating and effects will run much slower. So it´s still recommended to use the bundled version of GD.
