this takes the whitespace out
from
around an image

#ffffff

but can you do
#ffffff - #eeeeee

because it is not working for some images that have (offwhite)
//load the image
$img = imagecreatefromjpeg("http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/413XvF0yukL._SL500_AA280_.jpg");

//find the size of the borders
$b_top = 0;
$b_btm = 0;
$b_lft = 0;
$b_rt = 0;

//top
for(; $b_top < imagesy($img); ++$b_top) {
  for($x = 0; $x < imagesx($img); ++$x) {
    if(imagecolorat($img, $x, $b_top) != 0xFFFFFF) {
       break 2; //out of the 'top' loop
    }
  }
}

//bottom
for(; $b_btm < imagesy($img); ++$b_btm) {
  for($x = 0; $x < imagesx($img); ++$x) {
    if(imagecolorat($img, $x, imagesy($img) - $b_btm-1) != 0xFFFFFF) {
       break 2; //out of the 'bottom' loop
    }
  }
}

//left
for(; $b_lft < imagesx($img); ++$b_lft) {
  for($y = 0; $y < imagesy($img); ++$y) {
    if(imagecolorat($img, $b_lft, $y) != 0xFFFFFF) {
       break 2; //out of the 'left' loop
    }
  }
}

//right
for(; $b_rt < imagesx($img); ++$b_rt) {
  for($y = 0; $y < imagesy($img); ++$y) {
    if(imagecolorat($img, imagesx($img) - $b_rt-1, $y) != 0xFFFFFF) {
       break 2; //out of the 'right' loop
    }
  }
}

//copy the contents, excluding the border
$newimg = imagecreatetruecolor(
    imagesx($img)-($b_lft+$b_rt), imagesy($img)-($b_top+$b_btm));

imagecopy($newimg, $img, 0, 0, $b_lft, $b_top, imagesx($newimg), imagesy($newimg));

//finally, output the image
header("Content-Type: image/jpeg");
imagejpeg($newimg);

What you really want to know is: Are each of the RGB values of the color at this location above 0xEE

btw: imagecolorat returns a index to lookup the color at that location

imagecolorsforindex returns an array RGB of that indexed color.

use something like this
$this_pixel = imagecolorsforindex(imagecolorat($img, $x, $b_top));
if ($this_pixel['red'] > 0xEE and $this_pixel['green'] > 0xEE and $this_pixel['blue'] > 0xEE)
{
  // It's almost white
}

//top
for($b_top=0; $b_top < imagesy($img); ++$b_top) 
  {
  for($x = 0; $x < imagesx($img); ++$x) 
    {
    $this_pixel = imagecolorsforindex(imagecolorat($img, $x, $b_top));
    if ($this_pixel['red'] < 0xEE or $this_pixel['green'] < 0xEE or $this_pixel['blue'] < 0xEE)
       break 2; //out of the 'top' loop
    }
