The ImageEditor dialog in RadEditor has been around for about half a year, providing much wanted common image editing capabilities to the editor's end users.

 

 

 This dialog in fact is the front-end of a basic image editing engine that has been built into the Telerik.Web.UI.dll. Some time ago our colleague Todd Anglin suggested that we make the API public so it can be used independent of the editor. Sounded like a good idea - and the coming Q3 2008 will allow you to take advantage of it :)

 And since the functionality is already available in the already released RadControls Futures (which acts as a public beta for the Q3), we have assembled a small, but elegant looking example (thanks to the styling capabilities of RadFormDecorator) that features a basic image editor, being used independently of RadEditor itself.

Here is a how the editor looks like:

The attached project will show you how to:

  • Create thumbnails
  • Use the following image editing options:
    • Opacity
    • Resize
    • Flip
    • Rotate
    • Crop
  • Preview the changes
  • Overwrite the original image
The sample project, featuring Telerik RadControls Futures Q3 2008 Trial can be downloaded here
