Hello.  Okay, I'm setting up a small program to display images at random and i want to give people some simple image code to display in their site that uses something like <img src="http://www.mysite.com/myscript.php">  //this calls the server script (myscript.php) that should actually echo out the appropriate image.

 i will only be storing the URL'S to the images in a database and not the raw image data itself.  so basically the server script will produce something like http://www.somesite.com/images/image1.jpg    ..or gif of course...  i intend the server script to randomly choose a url based on some other criteria but what code do i need to use in the server script "myscript.php" to properly display the image in the clients page??

Thanks!

This should work, you have to change the url to your myscript.php which generates an image.
<?php

function scaleAxis($a, $b){

      //calculate the image axis while maintaining proportion

      return $b / (($a + 1) / $a);

}
 

function scaleImage($width, $height, $maxBoundW, $maxBoundH){

      //tests height vs width and scales the image based on the larger axis

      if ($height > $width){

 

            while ($width + 1 > $maxBoundW) {

                $height -= 1;        

                $width = scaleAxis($height, $width);

            }

           

            while ($height + 1 > $maxBoundH) {

                $height -= 1;        

                $width = scaleAxis($height, $width);

            }

           

      }elseif($width > $height){

             

                  while ($width + 1 > $maxBoundW) {

                      $width -= 1;        

                      $height = scaleAxis($width, $height);

                  }

                 

                  while ($height + 1 > $maxBoundH) {

                      $width -= 1;        

                      $height = scaleAxis($width, $height);

                  }

                 

      }else{

                  while ($width + 1 > $maxBoundW) {

                      $height -= 1;        

                      $width = scaleAxis($height, $width);

                  }

                 

                  while ($height + 1 > $maxBoundH) {

                      $height -= 1;        

                      $width = scaleAxis($height, $width);

                  }

      }

     

      $imageXy['x'] = $width;

      $imageXy['y'] = $height;

     

      return $imageXy;

}
 

// Grab the file from the database or from the directory, then set it as variables

// ; $filetype, $result (which is the file itself)
 

$path = "http://mfr.nizsmo.com/images/logo.jpg"; // YOUR ECHO IMAGE PHP URL HERE!!!

$dimensionX = 96; // adjust dimension as you see fit

$dimensionY = 64;
 

$result = file_get_contents($path);
 
 

      //set the output type

      header("Content-type: Image/Jpeg");

     

      // resize image

      $im = imagecreatefromstring($result);

     

     

      $imageXy = "";

     

      $imageXy = scaleImage(imagesx($im), imagesy($im), $dimensionX,  $dimensionY);  // SPECIFY THUMBNAIL SIZE

     

     

      $imgw = $imageXy['x'];

      $imgh = $imageXy['y'];

     

      // create thumbnail

      $thumb=ImageCreateTrueColor($imgw,$imgh);

      ImageCopyResampled($thumb,$im,0,0,0,0,$imgw,$imgh,ImageSX($im),ImageSY($im));

     

      //display output

      $out = ImagejpeG($thumb);

      print($out);

     

      // clean memory

      imagedestroy ($im);

      imagedestroy ($thumb);
 
 
 

$db->sql_close();

unset($db);
