    Hi Telerik

    We are planning to develop an image component that stores the uploaded image in the database in stead of storing it on disk (like Microsoft Content Management Server). With this component the administrator of the website doesn't have to think of a name for the image and where to store it on disk. The image gets a unique ID to reference it.
    I looked at the Roadmap for v3.2 and saw the plan for developing a Photos & Documents Module. What is meant by creating a library? Does this module support the functionality we want to develop?

    Kind regards

    Hi Luc Baeten,

    The functionality you want will be completely covered by the new module which we will release with version 3.2. The module will be able to store not only images, but also documents, videos and flash files. Of course, you will be able to create specific libraries for images only. You will be able to edit metadata for every image and the images will be stored in the database. You will have public controls to retrieve these images from the database and also Dialogs to include them in your Generic Content items, blogs and news. We would be glad to know in details what else you expect from such a module. Don't hesitate to throw any ideas at us, so that we can better address your needs in the next release.

    Sincerely yours,
    Slavo

    Hello Slavo

    That sounds great. When can we expect version 3.2?

    I developed an own Image control (look at http://www.milestre.nl/English/News/Latestnews/Sitefinity_Image_Control_Designer.aspx for a description) that makes it very easy to Select and upload the image, Preview the image, Unlimited resize the image etc.
    If that is also functionality you are going to support in version 3.2 I will stop with extending the functionality of this control with crop, rotate, flip etc.

    Kind regards

    Hello Luc Baeten,

    Version 3.2 is coming out in the end of January. As for crop and rotate functionality, we do not plan to support it. We will not have a separate Image control for the new module, only a control listing a collection of items. We will, however, provide selectors, which you can use in other controls to select items from the library (similar to the url selector to select CMS pages). So, you can continue extending your control and when the new module is out, you can enable it to retrieve data from the module.

    Best wishes,
    Slavo
