WideImage, an object-oriented PHP image library
WideImage is an object-oriented library for image manipulation, written in/for PHP 5∞
. It's a pure-PHP library and doesn't require any external libraries apart from the GD2 extension∞
. Most of the code is unit tested with Simpletest∞
, and also being actively used on a few projects
with no serious problems reported since first public release (alpha 1, March 2007). It's released under GNU LGPL 2.1∞
, which effectively means you're allowed to use it in a commercial project for free.
The library focuses on often-used image operations and ease of use. It provides a simple and unified way to loading
images from/to files, strings, database and even URLs (load only, must be enabled in PHP). Supports the most common image formats
, with more formats on its way
This is basically how easy it is:
This example loads an image from a PNG file, resizes it to 50x30, and saves it to a JPEG file.
- Supported image formats
- Simple examples (load, resize, crop, save)
- Loading images (from file, database, URL, gd handle)
- Saving images (to file, database, gd handle)
- Image operations (resize, crop, rotate, mask, sharpen, merge, draw text ...)
