1 image_example.module image_example_image_styles_alter(&$styles)

Implements hook_image_styles_alter().

Allows your module to modify, add, or remove image styles provided by other modules. The best use of this hook is to modify default styles that have not been overridden by the user. Altering styles that have been overridden by the user could have an adverse effect on the user experience. If you add an effect to a style through this hook and the user attempts to remove the effect it will immediately be re-applied.
