Yii 1.1: justintimeimageresizer

Create resized images and thumbnail only first time is needed


This extension resize images and thumbnail only if resized image or his thumbnail not exists. This means that you can upload images without take care of dimensions of "big" image or "thumb". Not only this!!! If you need to change dimensions of all images or all thumb, just change configuration file. When an image will be called. EJustInTimeR will resize it.


Create this structure folders:

        /originals - this is folder of original images
        /big       - this is folder of rezized big image
        /thumb     - this is folder of resized thumb image


Put all images in /images/jitr/originals. If the image to resize is called "italy.png" Just call

<?php $this->widget('ext.justintimer.EJustInTimeR', array(
    'image' => 'italy.png'
)); ?>

By default, it is displayed the thumbnail.


  • Yii 1.1 orvabove
  • PHP 5.3
  • image (yii extension)


Leave images in originals folder. If customer need to change all images dimensions ... just delete images in big and thumb folder. Them will be generated just in time the first time that some one request it.

Display thumbnail

<?php $this->widget('ext.justintimer.EJustInTimeR', array(
    'image' => 'italy.png'
)); ?>

Display big image

<?php $this->widget('ext.justintimer.EJustInTimeR', array(
    'image' => 'italy.png',
    'display' => 'big'
)); ?>

Set title or alt

<?php $this->widget('ext.justintimer.EJustInTimeR', array(
    'image' => 'italy.png',
    'alt' => 'This is alt value =)'
)); ?>

Working on version 2.0

I am working on a new version of this extension. It will be completely rewritten. I'll remove "image" extension dependency, and I'll suggest some trick to use the extension. Also, I hate name "justintimeimageresizer", maybe I'll change it.

Arbitrary sizes

Does it have to only be "big" or "thumb"? What if I have like 5 different sizes, will it work?

Also, would it work with remote HTTP files?

Hey Drini, could you share all of your code?1

Hello DRINI, you mentioned that you made it possible to use the fancybox. Here:Your text to link here... But if I use your code, I get errors that TARGET is not in fanybox. It seems like you have modified also that one. Could you share your changes to the code? Thanks.

Did anybody use this with a lightbox?

Hello out there, this extension is exactly what I was looking for, allowing me to change sizes when ever I want without re-doing all the images. Perfect. My next step is to use something like Fancybox, or PrettyBox.

Is there anybody who can confirm that this works togehter? Or what lightbox-tpyes are you using which are workable for this?

Thanks for any hints and ideas, gb5256

Read the error message

If you read the error message you can see that ejustintimeresizer is redeclaring a class. Just remove this declaration. I please you to add this issue to github so I'll update this extension.
