External images in Joomla 4 media manager

Why DPMedia?

Our main developer Allon Moritz was the team lead of the new media manager for Joomla 4 and the architect of the external provider API. That's why we can deliver the most trusted external service integration for the Joomla 4 media manager.

What next?

Please read the Concept of image service provider integration article to make yourself familiar with the setup and architecture of the storage plugins. We have also a Concept of image editing plugins article where you will find more information how to enhance image editing features. In Concept of context aware media access you will find all information how to work in context across all cloud adapters.

Are you a developer?

Do you want to benefit from DPMedia in your extensions? The easiest way is to use the standard core media field to let user select media data in your extension. This media field loads the media manager including DPMedia.

If only the external filesystem plugins like Google Drive or Dropbox are of interest, then extensions can load them through the core media manager plugin event onSetupProviders or by loading the \Joomla\Component\Media\Administrator\Provider\ProviderManagerHelperTrait.
