Extension for ColdFusion Builder to create Base64 strings of images to be used in CSS and image tags. Using base65 data strings instead of image calls reduced the network overhead to load web pages. This is especially helpful when dealing with phones or other devices that may have low bandwidth.

This extension works a few different ways:

1: Selecting an image will result in returning a base64 string of that image.
2: Scan a directory of images and process them all as a batch.
3: Select a file such as a css document and it will scan the file for images and process them.
4: Create an image from scratch. This option is more for crating background image bars but can create other things as well.

Update: V2.1

1: Added the ability to process cfm and html files.
2: Corrected some generation errors.
3: Added auto refresh of directory when processing a
4: Corrected timeout issue when trying to load remote images.

Note: file scanning assumes images are paths are relative to the file being scanned. Also, if you are behind a proxy server and the images are remote the extension will not be able to call them in.
