Hey! We are thrilled to announce the new version of popular media manager for Joomla. Quantum Manager 1.6.0 comes with new features, improvements and bug fixes. Now a new photostock (Pexels) added, you can use Quantum in SP Page Builder and import and export presets!
We have added an integration with another popular photo stock provider - Pexels. Now you can find any photo over this service in a few clicks and crop and resize the photo according to the required dimension.
In some cases you may need to get thumbnail to be used, i.e. in category blog of Joomla articles at the front-end. In the same time a big image should be displayed in full article. Manual generation of 2 image versions take time and using of a 3rd party plugin may not meet your needs. Now the solution is here.
Go to Quantum Manager options > Images tab and below you will find new params.
You can set up various configurations for image resizing process (items). Please have a look at the screenshot below:
As you see, we have created various items with thumbnail size to be used at site administrator's choice.
Now return to the component dashboard. An action button appears in the toolbar when multiple images selected.
After clicking in the thumbnail resizing config name, the resizing takes action - a
_thumbs subfolder is being created and thumbnails to be stored there.
Now it is possible to set custom colors for different file types to be displayed in grid mode.
This is default color for a file.
Let's set custom colors for .png file type.
There are two colors - for the entire folder and for its margin. When you set a file type, do not use dot - there should be png instead of .png.
Enjoy the result
With such an approach, you can highlight the file types which are important for you.
If you are using Quantum Manager at many sites, you may need to copy the configuration and use it at another sites. It is especially actual for profile and permissions params and values.
There are extra Import and Export buttons in the toolbar when you go to component options.
The configuration saves in JSON format.
An integration with another popular content constructor added: now you can edit images via Quantum Manager when you work with SP Page Builder.
After updating Quantum to the latest version 1.6.0 you need to add new MIME types manually to the component configuration:
