Requirements:

  • SWS Extensions v2.7.3 or more recent: https://sws-extension.org
  • Imagemagick: This is to generate smaller cached images for fast loading all the image thumbnails of the projects. When you set an image for the project you can browse and select a large image that is 4000 pixels for example but we only need 500 pixels or less to display a small thumbnail. You can define the size of the thumbnail in the settings page. It uses magick command internally to resize the image to a cached copy in your settings folder.. Windows and MacOS users can download it from https://imagemagick.org  Linux users, use your favourite method to install imagemagick package. Or read more on the website about installing on Linux.
