Timthumb Image Cropping On/Off

TimThumb is a popular image cropping plugin by Darren Hoyt that has been built into this theme. It’s utilized within the homepage slideshow and the Portfolio. This means that you can put any size image in and it will cropped and scaled by your server to fit into your website.

However, as most people that have used TimThumb know, there are rare occasions that some of smaller web hosting companies do not have compatible servers or have security issues that block methods that TimThumb uses.

Also, while many people like the ease of uploading an image and having it re-sized for them, many people that have the capability to edit their images prefer to have more control over what shows up on their website. They like to get their image cropped and looking perfect before uploading.

That’s why a convenient on/off feature has been added into the theme’s Theme Options page.
