image upload and resize

i have a few questions...  below is my current code for resizing my images


my first question would be what would be the best size to use for a profile picture/avator ??  at the moment is have $modwidth = 200; but if i have a long picture then it looks too big..if you upload a picure nearly in all perportions then it looks great... is there anyway to make it more perpotionate or anything?

my second question would be how could i stop anything but images beeing uploaded?

3rd;y is there any more enhnace ments any 1 can suggest?

Hello Mahdii7,

Take a look at pathinfo() to extract the extension.



<?php 
 
$path_parts = pathinfo("/www/htdocs/index.html"); 
 
echo $path_parts["dirname"] . "\n"; 
echo $path_parts["basename"] . "\n"; 
echo $path_parts["extension"] . "\n"; 
 
?>

ermm for some reason with the below code it says Extension: jpg is not allowed! :S:S
      // Adding extension verification
                                $allowed_ext = "|jpg|png|gif|jpeg|svg|bmp|";
                                if (!strpos($allowed_ext, "|".$file_ext."|")) die("Extension: $file_ext is not allowed!");

I bet it's a case issue


if (!strpos($allowed_ext, "|".strtolower($file_ext)."|"))


oh it's NOT a case issue

if (strpos($allowed_ext, "|".strtolower($file_ext)."|")!==false)

---
strpos was returning 0 (first position of the string), that's different than false (not found)

i chnaged it to if (strpos($allowed_ext, "|".strtolower($file_ext)."|")!==false) and i still get Extension: jpg is not allowed!

this is one of those LOL moments

normally I think

if (good extension)
{
  do something
}

but you want your program to die

so let's reverse the logic
$allowed_ext = "|jpg|png|gif|jpeg|svg|bmp|";
if (strpos($allowed_ext, "|".strtolower($file_ext)."|")===false) 
  die("Extension: $file_ext is not allowed!");
