Create thumbnail from image with PHP

Everybody who has a webpage where it is possible to upload images (for example a member picture for member profile) knows this problem: Digital cameras in these days creates pictures with high resolution but also with a big file size. Most pages forbid to upload pictures like this and restrict the size of the picture files.

You can create a good workaround for that. One version is to store the original file and create an additional thumbnail, the other way is, to store only the thumbnail, if you have less space on your webserver.Read More

PDF creation by PHP

I tried a lot to create PDF files by using PHP frameworks. For Java I’m using iText, but there is no interface to use iText by a PHP server. So I googled a lot and there are several frameworks to create these files. I tried them all an my opinion is, that domPDF is the best one, becase it is the easiest of all to use.

To create a PDF by domPDF, I only have to create a normal HTML page. This page I have to give to the renderer of domPDF and this renderer creates a PDF file out of this HTML code which is a one to one copy of the HTML page.Read More
