Simplify the way your editors may upload their images: no complex local procedure needed, let TYPO3 automatically resize down their huge images/pictures on-the-fly during upload (or using a scheduler task for batch processing) and according to your own business rules (directory/groups). This will highly reduce the footprint on your server and speed-up response time if lots of images are rendered (e.g., in a gallery). Features an EXIF/IPTC extractor to ensure metadata may be used by the FAL indexer even if not preserved upon resizing.
This release prevents a crash when creating new resize rules in TYPO3 v8. Details on https://forge.typo3.org/projects/extension-image_autoresize/wiki/IMAGE_AUTORESIZE_181
