Working with FLY

I have been working with FLY, to no avail.

I am trying to develop a script that will take a user's selected image and not only upload it to a directory, but also create a smaller version thumbnail image, ON THE FLY, and place the thumb in a thumbs directory.

I have gotten as far as being able to take in a user's image and upload it to the server, now I need to make the darn FLY portion of the script work to make the thumbnail image.

Hi there, I have used fly to create dynamic images in the form of postcards online, comprising of textures, stamps pictures etc.

Its difficult to fully answer your question without knowing how you have called "fly" within your script.

However, the commands you need to use within fly to resize the image is "copyresized x1,y1,x2,y2,dx1,dy1,dx2,dy2,filename.gif" where the first 4 parameters relate to the clipping of the source image, the next 4 parameters relate to the new size of what was clipped, and filename.gif is the destination file.

Ensure that you are calling the program correctly, and perhaps just create an example script file which does the above with a sample image to ensure that you are calling fly correctly (outside of your script, i.e. on the command line).
