Why does my file not resize?

I am trying to upload and resize a file. Can you tell me why my file does not resize. It uploads fine but the resize does not work.
if (isset($_FILES['image'])) {
echo "hello";
mkdir("../../property_images/$property_id/", 0700);
list($width, $height, $type, $w) = getimagesize($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name']);
$imageinfo = getimagesize($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name']);
echo $width=$imageinfo[0];
echo $height=$imageinfo[1];
$newwidth = 300;
$newheight = 200;
// Load
$thumb = imagecreatetruecolor($newwidth, $newheight);
$source = imagecreatefromjpeg($_FILES['image']['tmp_name']);
// Resize
imagecopyresized($thumb, $source, 0, 0, 0, 0, 400, 300, $width, $height);
	$ftmp = $_FILES['image']['tmp_name'];
	$oname = $_FILES['image']['name'];
	$fname = "../../property_images/$property_id/".$_FILES['image']['name'];
	if(move_uploaded_file($ftmp, $fname)){
// do something

You probably need to do a imagejpeg($thumb, 'path/to/your/new/thumb.jpg') in order for a thumbnail file to be stored.

It might also be that for the $source image, you need to use the image ?fter you moved it using move_uploaded_file, rather than before.

What warning or message do you get at this stage that tells you that thumbnailing fails?

Kind regards

in line 7 you should use douple quates if you are to put vriables inside string
also, try this function to resize jpg pics, through to it image source ($_FILES['image']['tmp_name']) , where to save the new created image, desired width and height can be either automatically calculated keeping aspect ratio or you can specify it
function resizePic ($src,$target,$width,$height=0){
	$allowedPics = array('.jpg','jpeg');
	$ext = strtolower(substr($src,strrpos($src,'.')));
	if (in_array($ext,$allowedPics)){
		$srcImage = ImageCreateFromJPEG ($src);
		$orginalW = imagesx($srcImage);
		$orginalH = imagesy($srcImage);
		$ratio = $orginalW/$orginalH;
		$quality = 60;
		$height = (!$height) ? $width/$ratio : $height;
		$image  = ImageCreateTrueColor($width,$height);
	} else {
		die ("unsupported image");
resizePic($_FILES['image']['tmp_name'] ,$_FILES['image']['name'],300);
