Crop and resize an image using MiniMagick in Ruby on Rails. Two approaches.
def resize_nocrop_noscale(image, w,h)
w_original = image[:width].to_f
h_original = image[:height].to_f
if w_original < w && h_original < h
return image
end
# resize
image.resize("#{w}x#{h}")
return image
end
def resize_with_crop(img, w, h, options = {})
gravity = options[:gravity] || :center
w_original, h_original = [img[:width].to_f, img[:height].to_f]
op_resize = ''
# check proportions
if w_original * h < h_original * w
op_resize = "#{w.to_i}x"
w_result = w
h_result = (h_original * w / w_original)
else
op_resize = "x#{h.to_i}"
w_result = (w_original * h / h_original)
h_result = h
end
w_offset, h_offset = crop_offsets_by_gravity(gravity, [w_result, h_result], [ w, h])
img.combine_options do |i|
i.resize(op_resize)
i.gravity(gravity)
i.crop "#{w.to_i}x#{h.to_i}+#{w_offset}+#{h_offset}!"
end
img

@maxivak I believe that in the resize_with_crop method, there is a mistake respect to the original code that you mentioned.

The fact that the line 23 in the gravity function there is not always 'Northwest' but the option gravity that we pass, mess up the cropping region. Effectively if you try your code without gravity option, it will set it up that to :center, and the cropping result will be just not around the center but starting from the bottom of the image, and that is weird.
What do you think?

Actually I just think that condition is completely wrong. It shouldn't have any gravity before crop (the gravity anyway is used to calculate the offset). Using a gravity flag that is not fixed as for example the original code 'NorthWest', will just create a lot of trouble in the image cropping: e.g. don't give option will set the option gravity to center, and with the gravity as center before the crop image, it will move it to the bottom.

I believe that you can be without any gravity before the crop, or if you want one just put it as fixed value as 'NorthWest'.

My 2 cents!

Cheers

Awesome script, thanks.

Btw, this didn’t maintain the correct gravity orientation for me when I used this exact code for the resize_with_crop function.

I needed to remove the:

i.gravity(gravity)

line of code to make it work.

Doesn't work properly. Two strings works wrong in my case. Should be:
when :center, :east, :west then [ ((original_height - cropped_height) / 2.0).to_i, 0 ].min
when :center, :north, :south then [ ((original_width - cropped_width) / 2.0).to_i, 0 ].min
