Introducing ImageWizard


(Will Woodgate) #1

ImageWizard simplifies your handling of images in Stacks, by combining over a dozen different stacks into just one. With ImageWizard you can quickly apply gorgeous image filters, rollover animation effects, rounded corners, shadow effects, hyperlinks, simple captions, Pinterest sharing buttons, retina image support, inset borders and a whole range of other beautiful embellishments. ImageWizard uses a bare-minimum of underlying source code, so not to burden page loading. Images and associated caption content are marked-up semantically using HTML5 figure tags; providing exceptional search engine optimisation and compatibly with the broadest range of web browsers possible.

ImageWizard is compatible with both Stacks 2 and Stacks 3. ImageWizard has been developed to replace the following stacks, which are now considered obsolete: Deli, Figure, Placeholder, GrayScale, GrayScale2, ImageRoundr, Pinnr, Pinable, RollFade, ImageLabelr and Protector. If you previously purchased one of these stacks, you may be entitled to a free copy of ImageWizard, by getting in contact with proof of purchase attached.

The product page for ImageWizard showcases a number of examples, together with an overview video, all stack documentation and the opportunity to download and install a free demo version of the stack.

Another highly configurable, full featured stack, at an amazingly low price from stacks4stacks.
Nice one Will.

I came to say what Ric said - very nice stack, lots and lots of features, and an amazingly low price. Of to your store I go!

Oh, although I didn’t see it mentioned, the images can be warehoused!!! Score!

Cheers,

Dave

Thanks for the kind words!

Yes ImageWizard can use images you drag and drop into Stacks, warehoused images (stored online), placeholder images from placehold.it or the sample lake reflections image which is useful for quickly testing the stack with. I honestly could not imagine using an image stack that did not support warehoused images - it is an absolutely crucial feature to have.

A cool trick is that if you’re using warehoused images and enabled the retina images option (in the advanced settings, if your RapidWeaver theme does not have retina image support already) we detect retina displays viewing your website. If a retina display is detected, we look for hi-res @2x versions of your images in the same folder, and swap-out the standard resolution images with the hi-res images. This way, people viewing you images on retina displays can see beautifully clear and crisp images at their very best. I’m using the opensource retina.js plugin, which I still find to be the best solution for retina images in RapidWeaver.
