Hi all,

I must be losing it cause I can't seem to get the hang of using gd - having spent 2 days reading the manual and various articles/posts/tutorials I'm just a tad confused about the functions I need to use.

What I'd like is a simple roadmap to follow (not code) so I can sort it out myself, so if someone could point me in the right direction it'd be great.

Here's what I'm doing (nothing complex) -

I'm uploading a jpeg using a form - I'm saving it to a dir as well as writing a url to db so I can display it - this works just fine, no trouble there.

What I'd like to plugin is a way to resize (and compress) to 2 different sizes. So now I'll save 2 images and 2 urls.

What would be the process I need to follow i.e. the flow of functions?

Thanx in advance.

I can't give you a roadmap, but I can give you guaranteed working code as created by lixlpixel. It works "straight out of the box" - [a href=\"http://fundisom.com/phparadise/php/image_handling/image_upload_and_resize\" target=\"_blank\"]http://fundisom.com/phparadise/php/image_h...load_and_resize[/a]
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.

Thanx for that Andy - with a bit of tweaking it'll do just what I need. [img src=\"style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/smile.gif\" style=\"vertical-align:middle\" emoid=\":smile:\" border=\"0\" alt=\"smile.gif\" /]
