Full Installation Guide

    This package use intervention/image to perform image cropping/resizing and generating thumbnails. Since v3.* of intervention/image does not support Laravel by default, the service provider need to be installed with the following scripts. Details can be found here:

     composer require intervention/image-laravel
     php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Intervention\Image\Laravel\ServiceProvider"

    * Do not run these scripts if you use v2.* of intervention/image.

     php artisan route:clear
     php artisan config:clear
