wannabe21 Posted May 1, 2014 Share Posted May 1, 2014 Hi, This is my first post and I would like to kick it off with a question I am trying to write a function that grabs the most relevant image from a website, however I encounter a few problems for which I need a bit of help for. To get into what I am trying to accomplish I suggest reading the article on : shareaholic This article describes quite in depth what you should do to grab the most relevant image from a website. Most functionality as described in that article are functional in my own program. just 32KB of images are fetched to get the headers so that i can calculate the width & height and aspect ratio. the array is sorted, big on top, small on bottom All OG Meta tags and Twitter Tags are found and stored in an array todo: compile a list of most used DIV ID for content, wordpress is using 'content' and other CMS's 'main' . etc etc With the information I should be able to grab the most relevant image from most websites, BUT... The thing that I encounter is that the biggest image is not always the most relevant image plus some ad images on certain websites have the perfect aspect ratio and are quite big, so I get wrong results. Did anyone here ever tried to do the same thing? and if so, how did you work around 'my' problem? Perhaps my approach is totally not correct.
