The "Image Crop and Resize" plugin adds to CKEditor the possibility to easily Crop and Resize the images when the user inserts them into the editor.
When the user adds a new image to the editor using any of the methods provided by the SimpleUploads plugin (toobar button, drag & drop, paste from the clipoard or quick upload tab) they will get a dialog to crop that image one set of dimensions that you have configured. This way those huge pictures that they upload from their cameras/phones now will fit correctly and will weight just a few Kb instead of several Mb.
In order to send the new images to your server, this plugin requires that you have correctly installed in your server the SimpleUploads plugin (can be purchased as a bundle with a discount)
