    Hey All, I am looking for a plugin that allows users to upload their own photos for a custom photo sticker order which has the ability to resize/crop to fit within specified print size etc and see what the proof will look like. I have been looking at this one https://codecanyon.net/item/fancy-product-designer-woocommercewordpress/6318393, but was just wondering if there is any other plugins anyone else has used or if they have any feedback on the one above.

    Hey @Suzabro some thoughts on ways you can attempt this. The plugin you suggest looks great. The demo site shows it working fine. Based on the delay time I got on my Nbn Connection, I think it needs to be on a faster server at least.

    One way is to allow the user to purchase a particular package, via woo-commerce, and then part of the purchase steps, get them to upload their finished image, and add what they want changed etc. But you would basically need to go through a round of revisions with the purchasee. To manually crop etc. Something like using Woo-commerce and gravity forms, with gravity forms uploader plugins. https://woocommerce.com/products/gravity-forms-add-ons/ has the ability to upload inside the custom checkout form.

    Here is another type of uploader for gravity forms, that doesn't use woo-commerce. https://en-au.wordpress.org/plugins/gravity-forms-advanced-file-uploader/ I've also seen similar ones that work with Easy Digital Downloads, If you'd prefer not to use Woo-commerce.

    Another way Is using this plugin in combination with your Woo-commerce. https://najeebmedia.com/wordpress-plugin/woocommerce-personalized-product-option/ This one includes an image upload and crop editor.

    Here is another one. https://en-au.wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-upload-my-file/
    And this one. https://codecanyon.net/item/woocommerce-upload-files/11442983 For this to work, I would pre-create the finished templates with a dotted boundary, in which their image would go, then with the uploader you have a bounding box they need to fit their image into to crop and upload.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I already have the first part working. Customers can select size and upload their image to the order using woocommerce addon. Which works perfectly fine but Was hoping for a system that allows them to do it rather than us having to manually edit photos incase they aren't suitable.

    Will go through all your suggestions. Thanks heaps!
