Image Cache

ImageCache allows you to setup presets for image processing. If an ImageCache derivative doesn't exist the web server's rewrite rules will pass the request to Drupal which in turn hands it off to ImageCache to dynamically generate the file.


  • Install and enable ImageAPI module
  • Install one of the ImageAPI toolkits (preferably GD)
  • Clean URL support or Private Files (more info)
