Most up to date versions

Most up to date versions of image handler modified for current releases of zen-cart can be found in the download section. As I have no time to take care of this project, the zen-cart community has continued to support and keep image handler up to date. This page will still continue to exist though.

Image Handler 2.0

Image Handler2 comes in two different flavours. You can download

Before you install this contribution, please have a look at the documentation and be sure to check out the showcase to get a feeling of how it is supposed to work. If you have an earlier version of IH2 installed, please check out the changelog, too. For deprecated versions of Image Handler (1.x and 0.x series) check out the attic.
