UPDATE

Product Image Cropping Module
You can now easily crop all your images within Opencart. This keeps all your product images exactly the same aspect ratio.
For example, choose the size of thumbnail that you'd like all images on the site to use, then when you upload an email you get the option to use the image cropper. Then simply choose which part of the image you'd like to use as the thumbnail and hit save. All images that use the image cropper will now be the exact same aspect ratio.

This extension has now been made and is working fully.
If you'd like it please email support@candidsky.com. The first 10 people to email me can have it for free.

Cheers
Tom

So you want to crop the images rather than pad them?

Yes... I think I know what you mean.

Basically some of my images are squares, some are not, so they arent uniform on the page and don't look neat at all.
What I want to do is simply take the middle square of the original image and crop off the rest, creating a square image for each product thumbnail.

What do you think?

Yeah it's possible to do, you just have to kind of reverse the image resizer tool, work out the trimming needed, and save that as the cache image

Is there currently a module that would handle this. I'm shocked that nobody else has enquired about this feature.

Not that I'm aware of (but I've only been using OC since May ;))

How long would it take a fine module writer like yourself to come up with something robust that would do this?

Where are you based?

This would be a very welcome addition. Different image sizes often destroys the most well laid out site.

This module is now complete.
We haven't added it to the Opencart Store yet, but email me and we'll arrange an installation for you.
