This Zen Cart Image mod uses and your server MUST be compiled with either GD libraries or ImageMagick to generate and seamlessly re-size small, medium and large images on the demand. This Zen Cart addon will also allow you to watermark large images withing your Zen Cart admin, by simply enabling the watermarking feature. You simply upload just one image for generation or you can have different sources for medium and large images. This image tool for Zen Cart also enables you to apply a custom watermark to your images and have medium images when you rollover the smaller image in your Zen Cart - hovering your mouse over a listing smaller image will trigger the rollover popup image in a larger size. This image rollover function for your Zen Cart will add larger images to a rollover of small or medium images which is configurable within your Zen Cart Mod administration.
The Mod includes an admin interface to browse your product images just like you would with the Attribute Manager and upload / delete / add additional images without ever leaving your Zen Cart Admin. Image Handler 2 works fine with mass update utilities such as EzPopulate. No other imaging software will re size and optimize images on the fly like this module for Zen Cart. This module will dramatically increase your store's load speed and enhance your image search results with watermarks.
