I have a library of CF Apps I need to migrate from Windows to Linux and I use CFX_IMAGE in several spots to show image dimensions and file size.  Because this is a dll will is still work on Linux?  If not, is there something else I can use to grab image dimensions and file size in CF on Linux?

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure you would need to find a Linux version.

I doubt u wld find lnux version - as i had a talk with the creator of this tag & he mentioned they dont have linux version of it YET ! ...

Alternative : U'll need to write a java class file that does the image resizing for u & proceed with that ...

Yeah cfx_image is only windows, but there is a lot of interest for a linux version out there and so I bet there may be something out there that does what you want - just when you do a search look for the features you want and not "cfx_image" and be sure to include "Linux" in the search

I have had success using <a href="http://www.imagemagick.org/">ImageMagick</a>, called from CF via CFEXECUTE. ImageMagick IDENTIFY will provide both filesize  & dimensions.

Documentation on ImageMagick IDENTIFY is at http://imagemagick.org/www/identify.html .

To get filesize you might do something like this:

<CFEXECUTE NAME='PathToImageMagick/identify' ARGUMENTS='-format "%b" myimagename.gif'></CFEXECUTE>

For width x height, something like this:

<CFEXECUTE NAME='PathToImageMagick/identify' ARGUMENTS='-format "%w x %h" myimagename.gif'></CFEXECUTE>
