Image Processing with PHP

by , Sep. 04, 2010 at 09:09 PM

Scripts: PHP, MySQL

Have you ever asked yourself how you can process images for your website or your images API like Flickr and so on?
I have been using third part software , namely Photoshop, Gimp, Inkscape,... to resize or other image processing capabilities from those software.
Since i ve found the way to manipulate directly my images in PHP with no need of Photoshop.
I am not saying that Photoshop, Gimp,... aren't good. No they are pretty good to work with.
But PHP with gd enabled is also good, you can perfom much with this feature.

I have written a class which helps me to process my images. When I upload any image of any format or size, I don't need to manually check
weither the size or the format are good or not.
My class does all the job me. It takes the source file of the image, determine its size, its format before it resizes it and crop it to the
needed size provided to it.

With this class I can also apply watermark to my pictures and copy to it for instance an copyright image.
It works for me as fine.

In combination with Ajax, i use that class to retrieve an image from my webserver to be displayed on this site. When a next button
or prev button is clicked, ajax tries to connect to the server to get a next or prev. image that you see on my site.
For some websites with a slide show with several tens of true colored picture get a problem of the bandwidth for your site.
Using the technics of ajax, you can solve that problem, because pictures are big in bytes than text.

If you want to test for yourself this great class. You need to include this class in your PHP file and instantiate an object of this, before you can call upon the defined methode and its public properties. For this raison, I've synthesized an PHP example so that you can test it and see its perfomance. You can further extend this class and add your own methods in other to enrich it.

Here is code test:

  1. <?php
  2. require_once 'Image_Processor.class.php';
  3.  
  4. $path_to_save_in = "/folder/";
  5. $img_proc = new Image_Processor($_FILES['file']['tmp_name'], 0, 0, $path_to_save_in);
  6. $img_proc->getImageWidth();
  7. $img_proc->getImageHeight();
  8. $img_proc->Resize(600, 600);
  9. $img_proc->Crop(520,242);
  10. $saveAs = "Filename" . $img_proc->getImageType();
  11. $img_proc->Save($saveAs);
  12. ?>

 

Have you any problem using it? Let tell it! Have fun!

Salut Joannes,
Quand j'ai programmé ce système, je l'ai codé supportant l'englais seulement. Bientôt, je vais l'étendre pour pouvoir supporter d'autres langages(Internationalization & Localization).
Toute fois, merci pour votre commentaire.
