For each image in a library, you can generate thumbnails with different sizes and then choose which size to display on the website. You categorize thumbnail types via thumbnail profiles. You can choose to hide some profiles for specific widgets. For example, you may choose to use only big thumbnails for the Image gallery widget, whereas decide you only need medium thumbnails for the Image widget. Thus, when configuring the Image widget, you have different choices of thumbnail sizes from the choices you have when you configure the Image gallery widgets.
Generally, any thumbnail profile is visible in all the widget designers. To hide a thumbnail profile, you use tags for both the profile and for the specific widget. Say you have a thumbnail profile with a “tag2” tag. To hide the profile from the Image widget designer, you need to make sure the widget tags do not have “tag2” tag listed.
NOTE: To hide a thumbnail profile, both the profile and the widget need to have one or more tags defined.
The following table summarizes the tagging scenarios for thumbnail profiles.
To hide a thumbnail profile for a specific widget, you first set the tag(s) of the thumbnail profile and then make sure this tag is not in the widget tag list. You do this in the Advanced settings section of the Sitefinity CMS backend.
NOTE: If you do not tag a profile, it is visible for all widgets.
NOTE: If you do not tag a widget, all profiles are visible in the widget designer.
