The following script will easily allow you to resize images using PHP and the GD library. If you’re looking to resize uploaded images or easily generate thumbnails give it a try

Usage Save the code from the ‘the code’ section below as SimpleImage.php and take a look at the following examples of how to use the script. The first example below will load a file named picture.jpg resize it to 250 pixels wide and 400 pixels high and resave it as picture2.jpg

<?php
   include('SimpleImage.php');
   $image = new SimpleImage();
   $image->load('picture.jpg');
   $image->resize(250,400);
   $image->save('picture2.jpg');
?>





<?php
 
/*
* File: SimpleImage.php
*/
 
class SimpleImage {
 
   var $image;
   var $image_type;
 
   function load($filename) {
 
      $image_info = getimagesize($filename);
      $this->image_type = $image_info[2];
      if( $this->image_type == IMAGETYPE_JPEG ) {
 
         $this->image = imagecreatefromjpeg($filename);
      } elseif( $this->image_type == IMAGETYPE_GIF ) {
 
         $this->image = imagecreatefromgif($filename);
      } elseif( $this->image_type == IMAGETYPE_PNG ) {
 
         $this->image = imagecreatefrompng($filename);
      }
   }
   function save($filename, $image_type=IMAGETYPE_JPEG, $compression=75, $permissions=null) {
 
      if( $image_type == IMAGETYPE_JPEG ) {
         imagejpeg($this->image,$filename,$compression);
      } elseif( $image_type == IMAGETYPE_GIF ) {
 
         imagegif($this->image,$filename);
      } elseif( $image_type == IMAGETYPE_PNG ) {
 
         imagepng($this->image,$filename);
      }
      if( $permissions != null) {
 
         chmod($filename,$permissions);
      }
   }
   function output($image_type=IMAGETYPE_JPEG) {
 
      if( $image_type == IMAGETYPE_JPEG ) {
         imagejpeg($this->image);
      } elseif( $image_type == IMAGETYPE_GIF ) {
 
         imagegif($this->image);
      } elseif( $image_type == IMAGETYPE_PNG ) {
 
         imagepng($this->image);
      }
   }
   function getWidth() {
 
      return imagesx($this->image);
   }
   function getHeight() {
 
      return imagesy($this->image);
   }
   function resizeToHeight($height) {
 
      $ratio = $height / $this->getHeight();
      $width = $this->getWidth() * $ratio;
      $this->resize($width,$height);
   }
 
   function resizeToWidth($width) {
      $ratio = $width / $this->getWidth();
      $height = $this->getheight() * $ratio;
      $this->resize($width,$height);
   }
 
   function scale($scale) {
      $width = $this->getWidth() * $scale/100;
      $height = $this->getheight() * $scale/100;
      $this->resize($width,$height);
   }
 
   function resize($width,$height) {
      $new_image = imagecreatetruecolor($width, $height);
      imagecopyresampled($new_image, $this->image, 0, 0, 0, 0, $width, $height, $this->getWidth(), $this->getHeight());
      $this->image = $new_image;
   }

Resizing images with PHP

This looks as if you've copy pasted it from somewhere. Also, you didn't mention what exactly you needed help with. Without effort from your end, I'd doubt anyone (including me) would be particularly willing to assist. Or, did you actually intend to post this in the code snippets section?

Hmmm. You've copied the code from the link you provided - but forgot to include the author's details. Please do not copy a big bit of code wholesale from another site and post it here. That's a no-no.
I can understand if you're happy about the code - I like GD too :)
