Image Handler 5 (Zen Cart 1.5.5+)

This version of Image Handler supports Zen Cart versions 1.5.5 and later and has been tested with PHP versions up to 7.1. The installation has changed to a more "drop-in" mode with no automatic removal of files on successful install.

This plugin enhances Zen Cart images by adding a handler to offer automatic resizing of images, caching thumbnails, and more. You can upload multiple sizes of an image from the Admin image handler page.

See the plugin's GitHub repository ( for additional information.

Note: The plugin's processing has also been validated with Zen Cart 1.5.6 (in its current beta form). When installed on ZC 1.5.6 and later, there are neither core-file overwrites or template-override changes!
