Crop an image in Touch UI page properties



Is there a way to use the image crop tool on an image that is displayed inside a page's Touch UI page properties dialog? I have AEM pages where an image has been dropped into a dropzone in a page properties tab, and there is a need to crop the image to a specific dimension. In other words, the image is visible when you open a page's page properties, and doesn't rely on an Image component that has been dropped onto the page. This feature is available in Classic page properties but I don't see how this is done in Touch page properties. I am familiar with how to configure the crop tool in the _cq_editConfig.xml for a component, but I can't find any info on how to configure the crop tool in Touch page properties.

I'm not aware of any OOB configuration/solution.

A custom solution would be to overlay/create your own component/widget and plugin into "Thumbnail" tab or create a new tab itself based on your requirements.

You may overlay this and register your custom dialog/component to the tab -

/libs/wcm/foundation/components/basicpage/v1/basicpage/tabs/thumbnail utilizes granite/ui/components/coral/foundation/form/fileupload
