Resize images in editor

0.08MB. Updated 2020-08-02. Only supports Anki 2.1.x.

This add-on allows the user to resize an image with just a click and drag in the editor. Please visit the GitHub page to see the entire list of features. I created a walkthrough video for the add-on in both English and Français. This video from AnKing also demonstrates this add-on as well as other ways to resize images. The development of this add-on was supported by a Kickstarter.

Excellent add on, love it. Needs a few touches though.
1) I am using it with the batch editing add on and if i add photos through it and then resize them i am not able to delete them if i want
2) I cant move photos backwards and upwards in the field by hitting backspace. If i try doing that the photo gets deleted.
Maybe you can do the resizing option a Toggle on-off with a shortcut so that you can move and delete the photo as if the add on isnt there.Anyways you know best.
Thanks and keep up the good work

I love the idea but it only works about 1/3 of the time. I usually have to resize the images several times before it actually sticks :(

Automatically resizing my images, for this is ruining my decks!! Awesome add-on but I can't take it anymore, I have to delete it.

Very useful addon!
I have been looking for an addon that can resize images by dragging in the editor for ages. Thank you.
on 1590229358
Great, does what it is supposed to. Fully recommended; five stars!

Small caveat:

* if one copies/pastes images from the card browser back into the add dialogue, then the addon may add <div> and <br> tags, which most people probably don't want there

How to toggle the 'draggable borders' off/on:

* if you want the 'drag-borders' to disappear, simply open/close the HTML Editor — now you can use the keyboard's delete key to get rid of unwanted <br> tags between your images

* if there no longer are 'drag-borders' and you want them to re-appear: select all -> cut -> paste

Great add on. However ever since adding I've had a few images from older cards disappear. I've deleted a number of add ons and no change has happened so can't ve certain if it is this add on / if this problem can be reversed

Very good addon but I have a problem, in mobile (ipad and iphone) the images do not keep their size, they appear in their original size.
Maybe I am doing something wrong?
Comment from author
I do not own either iphone nor ipad, so I am sorry, I can't test (unless users are ready to buy me one :p)

Recent version was supposed to have solved the problem for Android, So I would have hoped it worked on iphone too. I'll double check a week-end.

WOW! Thank you so much for making this.

Love how I can resize images with just my trackpad!
on 1585588030
I've posted a issue on github, thought i'd post here as well.
Images are showed as one image per line (as such). Is there a way to have multiple images appear on one line?
Comment from author before post was edited
Thank you. No idea who you are, sorry if I don't answer with a proper greeting.
This is not the way this add-on is supposed to work. It means there is a problem. Can you please post the bug report on github so we can discuss about it, and I can try to figure out why it does that.

Difficult to resize multiple images - have to drag around instead of specifying pixel dimensions
Comment from author
Yeah, that's clearly not the point of this add-on. It's description should make it clear that it's related to dragging image. You already have plenty of add-ons to deal with the kind of action you want, such as https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1593969147

Another awesome add-on from Arthur 👍
on 1584915902
Thanks a lot man for the time you put. Is there anyway to preserve the image size for mobile apps when using this add-on?
on 1584391626
Saves time and works great.

Really helpful!

It doesn't work as soon as I open and try to add a card.
I need to change the note type! and from then on it starts to work!
Is it happening just with me?

If I click to change note type and choose the same note type, in this case it starts to work as well!
Comment from author
Can you please post a bug report on github. I have no idea what is going on and would need to be able to discuss with you to get more information to understand and correct it.
on 1582658454
It's like I dies and went to heaven
on 1582592359
It's a wonderful idea.
however,bugreport:after installing this add-on some of my pcitures are crashed to a lump which is so small and obscure,and also,if this add-on can implement function like resizing pictures in MS word?Drag its border can be more convenient,but this add-on doesn‘t show border/box-line clearly.
have uploaded a new issue on github.
------------it works well
Comment from author before post was edited

Your idea has been followed. You can now see some border when the image is resizable. Did you update the add-on recently ? Most of the crash did disappear.
on 1582561646
Thank you so much Arthur for this add on !
works perfectly ! so usefull
on 1582479416
Awesome stuff!!
on 1582478456
Masterpiece! Being able to resize during review, too, would be AWESOME
on 1582453332
Brilliant idea and excellent execution!
I would love to see the ability to not only resize freely, but also to choose exact size (for example: 500px height).
I still prefer the combination of ImageResize + Image Style Editor, because I like most of my pictures at 500px height, and if I have more than 1 picture in the extra field, I can have all of the pictures the same height so they all look fit together nicely side by side.
I hope you'd consider adding the option to choose size in percentages, pixels....etc
But well done! Brilliant add-on, nonetheless x
Comment from author
I am sorry, but I've no clue what you are asking for. I can not imagine how this would work in practice. What is the way you expect to use this add-on. In particular, what would you do that you can't already do with "Image style editor".
on 1582321548
Long-awaited. Thank you so much for this!

Also huge thanks to AnKing and r/Anki for supporting your Kickstarter.

A little buggy, but not bad. I don't like this method because it creates unnecessary inline styles in the elements and results in images with 98px width while others from the same template are set to 112px width. When these images are lined up in the reviewer, they look dis-uniform and that sets me off. Then I waste my time trying to resize each image. Quite disruptive indeed. Perhaps add a size hint as the image is being dragged and resized? I took a different approach here: https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/949067586
Comment from author
Can you please post the bug report and feedback on github ? Because it's hard to discuss here.
What bug did you have ? The feedback you give looks more like feature request than like feedback.

"Unnecessary inline style", are you speaking of adding width and height ? They are necessary. The whole point of the add-on is to add size constraints.

What do you call a "size hint" ?
If you want to add the same size to every image, you can probably use CSS in the card style. And you already have the add-on https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1593969147 which allows you to enter the width you want manually. But anyway, the add-on is here to allow the user to manually resize and but the size they feel to be natural. It seems that it's not what you are looking for, so it makes sens that add-on is not to your taste.
You can hire me to add settings or create an add-on to your taste if you want. But right now I'm not even sure what this add-on would be

The single most needed add-on.

Game changer

Game changer, I cannot wait to see the feature of being able to resize during review https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/385888438 and for it to be able to change all the other images in different note types!!!
on 1582158633
Awesome add-on
