How would I go about uploading and resizing a transparent PNG, GIF image using PHP? I have a script but it only works with JPG images and of course JPG images do not support transparent images.

The image also needs to maintain it's transparency when resized.

Thanks in Advance!

<?php
//header ("Content-type: image/jpeg");
/*
JPEG / PNG Image Resizer
Parameters (passed via URL):

img = path / url of jpeg or png image file

percent = if this is defined, image is resized by it's
          value in percent (i.e. 50 to divide by 50 percent)

w = image width

h = image height

constrain = if this is parameter is passed and w and h are set
            to a size value then the size of the resulting image
            is constrained by whichever dimension is smaller

Requires the PHP GD Extension

Outputs the resulting image in JPEG Format

Thanks for the code sample, I will test it out!

actually, I myself use it and its really working..

Hi, - great script -btw,
.... but :D

@ImageJPEG ($thumb,$thumb_file);

will create only a JPG thumb image.
If i have a PNG image file to resize (with transparent background), it will get me a JPG image as result - with black background.

I modified the function above to the one:

@ImagePNG ($thumb,$thumb_file);

but, still having a black background on the result PNG image ( I want to have the same transparent background as the initial file)..

Can you help me with that ?!

Resize image to the 200x200 and 50x50 and keep orginal image
