Hello, I've had a head scratcher here.. so well using

$this->strOriginalImagePath = rawurldecode($strPath);

to pass to

$this->arrOriginalDetails = getimagesize($this->strOriginalImagePath);

which getimagesize() some timse it fails to find the path ... it's been hard to pin down but I think it's spaces and ' and things like that, which is why I was using rawurldecode().. but on the sites that have that issue this works just great...

$this->strOriginalImagePath = str_replace(" ", "%20", $strPath);

why would this be the case?  How can I insure that from site to site, server to server that this will work?

$strPath is a url atm... "/uploads/image/img.jpg"

Hope this is a simple fix...
