Better Image Cropper for Profile Photos

KT Walrus

Recommended Posts

The current image cropper for Profile Photos allows the user to drag and resize a rectangle over a fixed image before cropping the image. This process doesn't work that well for circular cropping as the user has to guess what the cropped rectangle will look like when later displayed. Rather than dragging the cropping rectangle over the image, it would be much better to drag and resize the image over a fixed circle (if profile photos are shown with circular css) or over a fixed rectangle (if profile photos are shown with rectangular css).

I found a jQuery image cropper plugin that gets this UI right.

See Croppie for various demos.

I'd like to see IPS change over to Croppie or some better image cropper UX, especially for profile photos.
