In my child Theme I have set my custom image with
add_image_size( 'big', 1500, 1000 )
I left out the crop parameter, but it is [false by default] anyway.
I want to make this a variable option.
I have just written a plugin that displays all the registered image sizes (including WP's thumbnail, medium and large sizes) plus my custom size.
With checkboxes I do
update_option($_size."_crop", true) for WP's image sizes and
global $_wp_additional_image_sizes; $_wp_additional_image_sizes[$_size]['crop'] = true for my custom size.
The thumbnail, medium and large work all fine but I can't get to override the default false $crop parameter from
var_dump($_wp_additional_image_sizes;) on my plugin page the boolean displays true, but when I upload a new image it is like
add_image_size() wins over my plugin?
When I set
add_image_size( 'big', 1500, 1000, true) in functions.php everything works like I want, but I want to make it an option to switch between hard and soft cropping - from my plugin options page obviously.
