Hi

I upload gifs which I want to convert and save as jpgs. I do this:

...
$image = @imagecreatefromgif($filename);
if($image)
{
  $image_p = imagecreatetruecolor($new_width, $new_height);
  imagecopyresampled($image_p, $image, 0, 0, 0, 0, $new_width, $new_height, $width, $height);
  imagejpeg($image_p, $filename_tn, 100); // 100% quality
}

Will that do the job, or is something else needed?

Thanks

Hi,  that should be sufficient

the colour looks right, the conversion looks right and saving the jpeg looks right.

The only thing I would consider is if you are uploading these to be converted - why not convert the $_FILE to a jpeg on the fly rather than saving the gif to file and then re sampling it?

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

How would I do that?

well - you have $image

= imagecreatefromgif($filename)

you should just be able to point it to the uploaded file

= imagecreatefromgif($_FILE['uploadedFileName']);

and the rest of the script would remain the same
