$base_img_dir = "uploads/images/";
$full_image=$base_img_dir.'no_image.gif';
 
if (!file_exists($base_img_dir.$_GET['img']) || $_GET['img']=="" ) {
   $full_image=$base_img_dir.'no_image.gif';
   $_GET['w']=120;
   $_GET['h']=90;
   
}
else { $full_image=$base_img_dir.$_GET['img']; }
 
list($width, $height, $type, $attr) = getimagesize($full_image);
 
switch($type){
	case "1":
	$img_in = imagecreatefromgif($full_image);
	break;
	
	case "2":
	$img_in = imagecreatefromjpeg($full_image);
	break;
	
	case "3":
	$img_in = imagecreatefrompng($full_image);
	break;
	}
 
//$img_in = imagecreatefromjpeg('spaw2/uploads/images/'.$_GET['img']) or notfound();
 
 
 
$img_out = imagecreatetruecolor($_GET['w'], $_GET['h']);
imagecopyresampled($img_out, $img_in, 0, 0, 0, 0, imagesx($img_out), imagesy($img_out), imagesx($img_in), imagesy($img_in));
 
switch($type){
	case "1":
	header("Content-type: image/gif");
	imagegif($img_out);
	exit;
	break;
	
	case "2":
	header("Content-type: image/jpeg");
	imagejpeg($img_out,NULL, 100);
	exit;
	break;
	
	case "3":
	header("Content-type: image/png");
	imagepng($img_out);
	exit;
	break;
	}

The code snippet appears to be something related to resizing static images, so it is not applicable.  You would probably want something that does readfile() from a hidden source, but I must admit I have never tested such a thing.

What have you tried so far?  What kinds of results or errors did you see?
