imagejpeg

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

imagejpegOutput image to browser or file

Description

bool imagejpeg ( resource $image [, string $filename [, int $quality ]] )

imagejpeg() creates a JPEG file from the given image.

Parameters

image

An image resource, returned by one of the image creation functions, such as imagecreatetruecolor().

filename

The path to save the file to. If not set or NULL, the raw image stream will be outputted directly.

To skip this argument in order to provide the quality parameter, use NULL.

quality

quality is optional, and ranges from 0 (worst quality, smaller file) to 100 (best quality, biggest file). The default is the default IJG quality value (about 75).

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Examples

Example #1 Outputting a JPEG image

<?php
// Create a blank image and add some text
$im imagecreatetruecolor(12020);
$text_color imagecolorallocate($im2331491);
imagestring($im155,  'A Simple Text String'$text_color);

// Set the content type header - in this case image/jpeg
header('Content-Type: image/jpeg');

// Output the image
imagejpeg($im);

// Free up memory
imagedestroy($im);
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

Example #2 Saving a JPEG image

<?php
// Create a blank image and add some text
$im imagecreatetruecolor(12020);
$text_color imagecolorallocate($im2331491);
imagestring($im155,  'A Simple Text String'$text_color);

// Save the image as 'simpletext.jpg'
imagejpeg($im'simpletext.jpg');

// Free up memory
imagedestroy($im);
?>

Example #3 Outputting the image at 75% quality

<?php
// Create a blank image and add some text
$im imagecreatetruecolor(12020);
$text_color imagecolorallocate($im2331491);
imagestring($im155,  'A Simple Text String'$text_color);

// Set the content type header - in this case image/jpeg
header('Content-Type: image/jpeg');

// Skip the filename parameter using NULL, then set the quality to 75%
imagejpeg($imNULL75);

// Free up memory
imagedestroy($im);
?>

Notes

Note: JPEG support is only available if PHP was compiled against GD-1.8 or later.

Note:

If you want to output Progressive JPEGs, you need to set interlacing on with imageinterlace().
