Get image size in pixels

Trying to figure out if CF has any way to capture the size (width and height) of an image in pixels--without using any special custom tags or other special means.  CFFILE doesn't seem to get the job done on this.

I have seen other questions on the site, but my account seems to be acting funky and i cannot access the answers (it just brings me to a credit card page when i click on the link to view the detail of the search result).


Thanks!

I've been using the code below, not sure where i got it.  Will work on gif's and jpg's as far as I know:

<cfobject type="java" action="create" name="jtk" class="java.awt.Toolkit">
<cfobject type="java" action="create" name="jimg" class="java.awt.Image">
<cfset jimg = jtk.getDefaultToolkit().getImage("C:\full\path\to\image.gif")>
<cfoutput>
       #jimg.getWidth()#
      #jimg.getHeight()#
</cfoutput>

Hi mcarr1,
I do not think so you can do it without custom tags.

you can not do this byuing just cffile tag
speshal has kind of given you the solution...

but for it to work u need the class file created in java.
You  will have to install it using cf admin and then use it...

There is no other way to do it in CF ...

i am using some java code VERY similar to speshal's solution (based on same java commands) so please note that the code might not work with all JPGs. i guess it probably depends of the compression of the file, or something different.

i used it to calculate images from different sources and some images return "-1" for getWidth and getHight, so you should take care.

as far i know there is no other possibility, but i am quite sure that there are similar solutions based on Microsofts COM Objects.

speshal: do you have any idea where one could find the class file for that code?

Thanks for the effort.

Seems like Macromedia should look into this capability for future versons, since it would really help to have the ability to check, say, a banner to make sure it is of a certain size.

When you are using Coldfusion MX 6.1 (guess, 6.0 is also ok), the JRE classes are already included, since Coldfusion is completely buid on Java Enterprise Server technology.

Yes, I am using Coldfusion MX 6.1 as well, and already had the classes.  You can dowload sun's jre or jdk which contains the java.awt classes at http://java.sun.com.
