I get this gibberish code after I upload an image. What is it and how can I get rid of it?

Recommended Posts

The image uploads fine but I get this weird gibberish code after I submit. It goes away after i refresh the page.

JFIF>CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v90), default quality C    $.' ",#(7),01444'9=82<.342C  2!!22222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222222" }!1AQa"q2#BR$3br %&'()*456789:CDEFGHIJSTUVWXYZcdefghijstuvwxyz w!1AQaq"2B #3Rbr $4%&'()*56789:CDEFGHIJSTUVWXYZcdefghijstuvwxyz?(((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((

Here's my code.

Well, you're serving the response as standard text/html, but for some strange reason, you've then decided to create an empty image and output it with the imagejpeg() function. That's how an image interpreted as HTML looks like.

 

A lot of the code is plain weird. For example, why on earth to you use a transaction for a single query and roll it back when there's an error? Just wait until you've finished all error checking and then insert the data.

it's an old image upload code that I copied from a tutorial and then mixed it with my own. The original code actually created 2 images. One original and the other a thumb image. So I removed that thumb code but it looks like there might be some left and that might be causing it.

 

Yep so this piece of code was causing it. I removed it in all four cases and no more gibbersh code. It's all good now.

$thumb =	imagecreatetruecolor($width, $height);
		imagegif($thumb);
		imagecolortransparent($thumb, imagecolorallocatealpha($thumb, 0, 0, 0, 127));
	        imagealphablending($thumb, false);
	        imagesavealpha($thumb, true);

In terms of why I am using transaction for a single query, i didn't realize it till now.  Some of the other pages have multiple queries that require the transaction so naturally I copied the code.  Thanks for pointing that out.
