exif_thumbnail

(PHP 4 >= 4.2.0, PHP 5)

exif_thumbnailRetrieve the embedded thumbnail of a TIFF or JPEG image

Description

string exif_thumbnail ( string $filename [, int &$width [, int &$height [, int &$imagetype ]]] )

exif_thumbnail() reads the embedded thumbnail of a TIFF or JPEG image.

If you want to deliver thumbnails through this function, you should send the mimetype information using the header() function.

It is possible that exif_thumbnail() cannot create an image but can determine its size. In this case, the return value is FALSE but width and height are set.

Parameters

filename

The name of the image file being read. This image contains an embedded thumbnail.

width

The return width of the returned thumbnail.

height

The returned height of the returned thumbnail.

imagetype

The returned image type of the returned thumbnail. This is either TIFF or JPEG.

Return Values

Returns the embedded thumbnail, or FALSE if the image contains no thumbnail.

Changelog

Version Description
4.3.0 The optional parameters width, height, and imagetype all became available.
4.3.0 May return thumbnails in the TIFF format.
