Centering watermark

Hey guys,

   $middle_y = ($canvas_h / 2) - $overlay_h; // $canvas_h is the original picture height, $overlay_h is the overlay height
   $middle_x = ($canvas_w / 2) - $overlay_w; // $canvas_w is the original picture width, $overlay_w is the overlay width
   imagecopymerge($canvas_img, $overlay_img, $middle_x,$middle_y,0,0, $overlay_w, $overlay_h, $Opacity);

Now, I want to center the overlay over the image...and I thought my math logic would/should work, but it does not.

And also, a function that will generate a thumbnail as well, but portioned to size, so it does not appear distorted.

try:
 $middle_y = ($canvas_h  - $overlay_h)/ 2;
 $middle_x = ($canvas_w - $overlay_w) / 2;

Thank you much CosminB, could you help me with the second part as well? Like a thumbnail generator that constrains sizes much like Photoshop Image Size function, so it does not look distorted.

From what I understand you want to keep the aspect ratio and have a maxium width or height:
<?php
$oldHeight = null; //you'll have to obtain this values
$oldWidth = null;
$maxWidth=200;
$maxHeight=200;
if ($oldHeight > $oldWidth)
{
  $newHeight = $maxHeight;
  $newWidth = round($oldWidth*$newHeight/$oldHeight)
}
else
{
  $newWidth = $maxWidth;
  $newHeight = round($oldHeight*$newWidth/$oldWidth)
}
//next you'll have to resize the image using this dimmensions
?>
