Displaying full size image in the interface instead of thumb in the admin


Using the image tag, are there ways change the display so that the redactor could see a full size image in the interface? I would like to display this image along with a script so that the editor could easily find the coordinates of a point in the image.

I've managed it once to do this in an app I created by changing the display property for the admin thumb, but this time, I have to do this for the needs of the classic page and of course, without touching the core.

Thank you in advance

Best regards

Anything that happens in Redactor is really out of scope of what we're doing in Perch. Your best bet might be to look into writing a Redactor plugin.

If you wanted to do it outside Redactor, you could look at writing a field type to extend the default image field type with the extra functionality.

Sorry, I didn't mean to transfer the image through Redactor, but through perch:content type=image

So the latter part of my answer stands - you'd need to build a field type.
