All Refinery's images are stored in one place, the images plugin.
Images and other file uploads are handled using Dragonfly
Using a Thumbnail Size in Your View
Say I want to have a thumbnail of size 400x300 I would collect that image out of the database and apply it like this in my view:
<%= image_fu @image, '400x300' %>
image_fu is a command we have created that automatically adds width and height attributes to the
generated image so that web browsers render your pages more smoothly as they know in advance how big
an image is going to be before it is fully downloaded.
If I wanted to replace all the images inside a content section without the user having to resize images
in the editor then I would use the built in
content_fu command like this in my view:
<%= content_fu @page[:body], '400x300' %>
content_fu is a command we have created that automatically changes all images with the url /system/images to use a particular size.
This makes it easy to protect your pages from having gigantic images inserted into them that blow out the design.
