Solving the Problem

It’s always a problem: how can images be constrained to fit the design, make sure it meets minimum/maximum requirements, and still get the part of the image that’s relevant?

Ansel puts you in charge by defining image fields with minimum and/or maximum requirements, aspect ratios, minimum/maximum number of images, and more. This means you don’t need to worry if images are the right size when content editors do their work — Ansel makes them the right size.

Define the settings that are needed for any given field or location and your design and front end will look right every time.

Users Rejoice

End users can now upload any image with the peace of mind that nothing about the design or front end will break in any way. The image constraints have been defined and their image will live within those constraints.

And what if the action of the image they want to use is not in the frame? No problem. Use the crop lasso to select the correct portion of the image!

Twig Templating with Ease

Ansel uses a pattern familiar to anyone who uses Craft. The “Criteria Model”. Ansel’s Image Criteria Model behaves like Craft’s Entry Criteria Model in every meaningful way. This means you can create loops through your site’s images, get the first, the last, the count, and practically anything else you can think of doing.

Ansel and Assets

Ansel saves its images using Craft’s native Assets. And when you work with Ansel images in Twig, everything that’s available to you through an Asset in a Twig template is available to Ansel Images as well.
