Save Post and populate field with image

  • This is not an issue.

    But I am not knowing how to develop my idea with ACF.
    I know that I have to use acf_save and wp_image_editor to achieve this though.

    wp_image_editor is documented and so of course by WP.

    I got two fields for image-object, with the names of:

    I want only for the user logged in to upload a standing wine-bottle into the ‘img-standing’. And the horizontal image should be done automatically through the wp-image-editor and then set to the ACF-field ‘img-horizontal’.

    I could also use CSS to make rotation, but I dont want to go that way as it is for now in this application. I rather rely on the images being accessible as files.

    Thanks for any input.

  • Hi @hejamartin,

    Thanks for the post.

    I would recommend you make use of the PHP function imagerotate() to rotate the image and then save back the rotated image as a new file.

    The code would look like so:

    //define image path
    // Load the image
    $source = imagecreatefromjpeg($filename);
    // Rotate
    $rotate = imagerotate($source, $degrees, 0);
    //and save it on your server...

    For loading the newly created image, you can make use of the acf/load_field filter after storing the image object in a $variable.
