  • Tag support
  • Version control for your media
  • Image editing features, including resizing and cropping
  • Ability to publish/unpublish media with reference-checking
  • Support for TinyMCE, TV's, ContentBlocks
  • Meta data for images out of the box: id, version, filename, version, author, dimensions (original + cropped image size), category, tags)
  • Unlimited additional meta data (like TV's for images!)

Installation, migration and beta notice

Installation

  1. Install the package through package management by uploading the latest version from the _packages folder.
  2. You have to enable the Media Manager per MediaSource. Go to the top-menu "Media" -> "Media Sources" -> "Create property" and set the Textfield value to "1" 
  3. Now enable it per user by editing a user: "Manage" -> "Users" -> Edit a user -> "Settings" -> "Create new" and set the key and/or name to "media_sources_id" and set the value to the ID of the Media Source you just enabled.

That's it, have fun!
