imagecopymergegray

(PHP 4 >= 4.0.6, PHP 5)

imagecopymergegrayCopy and merge part of an image with gray scale

Description

bool imagecopymergegray ( resource $dst_im , resource $src_im , int $dst_x , int $dst_y , int $src_x , int $src_y , int $src_w , int $src_h , int $pct )

imagecopymergegray() copy a part of src_im onto dst_im starting at the x,y coordinates src_x, src_y with a width of src_w and a height of src_h. The portion defined will be copied onto the x,y coordinates, dst_x and dst_y.

This function is identical to imagecopymerge() except that when merging it preserves the hue of the source by converting the destination pixels to gray scale before the copy operation.

Parameters

dst_im

Destination image link resource.

src_im

Source image link resource.

dst_x

x-coordinate of destination point.

dst_y

y-coordinate of destination point.

src_x

x-coordinate of source point.

src_y

y-coordinate of source point.

src_w

Source width.

src_h

Source height.

pct

The src_im will be changed to grayscale according to pct where 0 is fully grayscale and 100 is unchanged. When pct = 100 this function behaves identically to imagecopy() for pallete images, except for ignoring alpha components, while it implements alpha transparency for true colour images.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
