How to crop the image using native php?

Recommended Posts

Well, it's not actually cropping, but resizing function that I wrote and I have been testing it out on my website. So far it's been working like I expect it to. Though I imagine you could modify the script to do cropping?


function imageResize($imageSrc, $imageWidth, $imageHeight, $newImageWidth, $newImageHeight): GdImage|bool
    $newImageLayer = imagecreatetruecolor($newImageWidth, $newImageHeight);
    imagecopyresampled($newImageLayer, $imageSrc, 0, 0, 0, 0, $newImageWidth, $newImageHeight, $imageWidth, $imageHeight);

    return $newImageLayer;

function resize($file_temp, $new_file_name, $thumb = false): bool
    $sourceProperties = getimagesize($file_temp); // Get image sizes:

     * Determine if it's a thumbnail or large image then
     * resize the images accordingly.
    $old_width = $sourceProperties[0];
    $old_height = $sourceProperties[1];

    $new_height = null;

    if ($thumb) {
        $new_width = 300;
        $newImageHeight = ($new_width * $old_height) / $old_width;
        $newImageWidth = $new_width;
    } else {
        $new_width = 1200;
        $newImageHeight = ($new_width * $old_height) / $old_width;
        $newImageWidth = $new_width;

    $temp = '../' . $new_file_name; // folder is nested one down from root:

    $imageType = $sourceProperties[2];// Determine what type of image (png, jpg or gif):

     * Use Switch statement to resize the image and save it to the correct folders
    switch ($imageType) {

        case IMAGETYPE_PNG:
            $imageSrc = imagecreatefrompng($file_temp);
            $tmp = imageResize($imageSrc, $sourceProperties[0], $sourceProperties[1], $newImageWidth, $newImageHeight);
            imagepng($tmp, $temp);

        case IMAGETYPE_JPEG:
            $imageSrc = imagecreatefromjpeg($file_temp);

            $tmp = imageResize($imageSrc, $sourceProperties[0], $sourceProperties[1], $newImageWidth, $newImageHeight);

            imagejpeg($tmp, $temp);

        case IMAGETYPE_GIF:
            $imageSrc = imagecreatefromgif($file_temp);
            $tmp = imageResize($imageSrc, $sourceProperties[0], $sourceProperties[1], $newImageWidth, $newImageHeight);
            imagegif($tmp, $temp);

            echo "Invalid Image type.";
    return true; // Return true to signal that image was resized:
