Simple Image Scaling

Recommended Posts

I am pretty new to PHP, so i don't really know how to do anything beyond the basics and am mostly using code examples to learn my way. However, i haven't been been able to find any examples for what i'm looking to do. I want to take an image (jpg or gif) and scale it so it fits into a pre-sized box. I know there are lots of scripts out there that do this with a file and output to a file.. but i'm looking for something that that takes a web image (http link) and then outputs directly to the browser or returns some sort of image that i can display with <img> tags (i don't know if thats even possible, but would be my first choice). If anyone knows of a script already made to do this or maybe there is a method already in php for this sort of thing that would be great. Thank you for your help.

You'll need PHP compiled with GD support to use its image functions. There is an example of resizing images on the [a href=\"http://uk.php.net/imagecopyresized\" target=\"_blank\"]manual page for imagecopyresized()[/a].
