I have a post type which contains custom fields for uploading images of different types for a portfolio site. For example: (logos, websites, print-ads, etc...).
I plan on uploading images of all different sizes and aspect ratios, but I need to have a smaller size (thumbnail) of a specific (and different) size for each image type. I also need functionality to crop these thumbnails manually.
Logo thumbs -> 200x200
Website thumbs -> 450x200
print-ad thumbs -> 200X400 etc...
I've been toying with a couple plugins: Post Thumbnail Editor, Multiple Post Thumbnails; but these seem to be buggy in WP-3.3 and they don't appear to do exactly what I want anyway
I can, of course, just upload 2 different versions of each image, and use the crop tool in the backend to get them to the right size, but I would love a more elegant approach.
So I guesse what I am really looking for is some advice.
- Should I keep fighting with existing plugins and try to get something working?
- Should I give up and use the dirty (upload 2 versions of each) approach?
I would be willing to spend the weekend on it (10-15 hours) if need be.
