Img field leveraging WP Post Thumb sizes? Possible?

  • Using ACF Pro a ton right now. Wondering about leveraging the WP Post Thumb sizes as a selectable return value.

    For instance if I have a custom size, and I want the admin to be able to select that size, or I want the return url to be that size no matter what, that would really helpful. Has anyone done anything like that?

    I know that programmatically I can set a custom image to return a specific size by using: wp_get_attachment_image_src. This is fine in general but, in a more flexible env, if the size I notate in the field description isn’t followed then the user has to crop an image, which saves a new image to Media and this grows to be out of control…

    It would be cool if we could specify a return size on an image or let the user select from a dropdown which thumb size to return.

    I might not be understanding correctly, but I’m not sure why you aren’t just doing this as part of your template file. That seems to be where this type of thing would belong.. You set up your custom image sizes, customer uploads a photo, WordPress makes all the respective sizes, and then you simply call the right size in your template file.

    <?php $theimg = get_field('grid_image'); ?>	
    <img src="<?php echo $theimg['sizes']['customsizehere']; ?>" alt="<?php echo $theimg['alt'] ?>" />	

    If I’m missing something, can you clarify a bit more?
