we have a requirement to create renditions with fixed size. The problem is that aem always sizes the images along the ratio of the image and so a web enabled image which should be 1200x1200 has only a size of 1200x765 (for example) - which is good and totally okay!
But we need something like cropping an area with fixed size out of the center of the image.
is there any mechanism / workflow which can handle this? Or somebody who has similar problems / requirements?
I think that don´t matches our problem. the limitation gives us only the possibility to make "bigger" renditions.
we need renditions that have the exact size of our requirement.
e.g. an image of 1920x467 should create a rendition of 300x300 (as the real size of the image, not 300x25 for example). so forcing the resize workflow step is no option because the picture will be skewed. so we need another option to crop an 300x300 area out of the image.
