Image Upload

The Server Upload section describes the steps to upload an image to a server. Resizing images in the editor only changes the size displayed in the browser. Changing the physical size of an image occurs on the server side.

Resize Image

The Java SDK uses the Java Thumbnails.Builder.size or Java Thumbnails.Builder.forceSize methods, to resize images before storing them on disk. You can use all the options available for it.

// Use default validation with image resize;
ImageOptions options = new ImageOptions();
options.setResize(width, height, keepAspectRatio);

Complete Example

  new FroalaEditor('.selector', {
    // Set the image upload URL.
    imageUploadURL: '/upload_image_resize',

    imageUploadParams: {
      id: 'my_editor'
