I have a client who wants 4 different sized images available (small, medium, large, original) for every image loaded into an Image Library within Sitefinity. This is because they see different sizes for blogs, news items, page content, viewing a larger image, and downloading the original image.
I understand that there is a list of thumbnail images that are available through the file type .tmb but that is just one image.
I also understand that Sitefinity uses a list of thumbnails but only populates one.
Is it possible to have more than 1 thumbnail associated with an image? How can I do that programmatically?
Currently, I have intercepted the 'Executing' event and I create the different sized images and save them in the same library with a different filename suffix (ex. __sm, __med, __lg). I don't particularly like this method mainly because the image library is bloated with 4 times the # of images visible.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
