From this article https://davidwalsh.name/create-image-thumbnail-php
function make_thumb($src, $dest, $desired_width) {

	/* read the source image */
	$source_image = imagecreatefromjpeg($src);
	$width = imagesx($source_image);
	$height = imagesy($source_image);
	
	/* find the "desired height" of this thumbnail, relative to the desired width  */
	$desired_height = floor($height * ($desired_width / $width));
	
	/* create a new, "virtual" image */
	$virtual_image = imagecreatetruecolor($desired_width, $desired_height);
	
	/* copy source image at a resized size */
	imagecopyresampled($virtual_image, $source_image, 0, 0, 0, 0, $desired_width, $desired_height, $width, $height);
	
	/* create the physical thumbnail image to its destination */
	imagejpeg($virtual_image, $dest);
}

Here is my teaching example...
<?php // demo/image_thumbnail.php
/**
 * RESIZE AN IMAGE TO FIT INSIDE A DEFINED TRANSPARENT SPACE
 * USE CASE: <img src="image_thumbnail.php?i=your.jpg&w=150&h=100" />
 */
error_reporting(E_ALL);


// ACQUIRE THE ARGUMENTS - MAY WANT SOME SANITY TESTS HERE?
$thumb_w   = !empty($_GET["w"]) ? $_GET['w'] : 600;
$thumb_h   = !empty($_GET["h"]) ? $_GET['h'] : 400;
$image_url = !empty($_GET["i"]) ? $_GET['i'] : trigger_error("Missing GET argument 'i' for Image URL", E_USER_ERROR);;

// CREATE THE THUMBNAIL IMAGE RESOURCE AND FILL IN TRANSPARENT
$thumb = imagecreatetruecolor($thumb_w, $thumb_h);
imagesavealpha($thumb, TRUE);
$empty = imagecolorallocatealpha($thumb,0x00,0x00,0x00,127);
imagefill($thumb, 0, 0, $empty);

// GET ORIGINAL IMAGE DIMENSIONS
$array = getimagesize($image_url);
if ($array)
{
    list($image_w, $image_h) = $array;
}
else
{
    trigger_error("NO IMAGE $image_url", E_USER_ERROR);
}

// ACQUIRE THE ORIGINAL IMAGE
$image_ext = explode('.', $image_url);
$image_ext = end($image_ext);
$image_ext = trim(strtoupper($image_ext));
switch($image_ext)
{
    case 'JPG' :
    case 'JPEG' :
        $image = @imagecreatefromjpeg($image_url);
        if ($image) break;

    case 'PNG' :
        $image = @imagecreatefrompng($image_url);
        if ($image) break;

    default : trigger_error("UNKNOWN IMAGE TYPE: $image_url", E_USER_ERROR);
}

// GET THE LESSER OF THE RATIO OF THUMBNAIL H OR W DIMENSIONS
$ratio_w = ($thumb_w / $image_w);
$ratio_h = ($thumb_h / $image_h);
$ratio   = ($ratio_w < $ratio_h) ? $ratio_w : $ratio_h;

// COMPUTE THUMBNAIL IMAGE DIMENSIONS
$thumb_w_resize = $image_w * $ratio;
$thumb_h_resize = $image_h * $ratio;

// COMPUTE THUMBNAIL IMAGE CENTERING OFFSETS
$thumb_w_offset = ($thumb_w - $thumb_w_resize) / 2.0;
$thumb_h_offset = ($thumb_h - $thumb_h_resize) / 2.0;

// COPY THE IMAGE TO THE CENTER OF THE THUMBNAIL
imagecopyresampled
( $thumb
, $image
, $thumb_w_offset
, $thumb_h_offset
, 0
, 0
, $thumb_w_resize
, $thumb_h_resize
, $image_w
, $image_h
)
;

// SHOW THE NEW THUMB IMAGE
header('Content-type: image/png');
imagepng($thumb);

// RELEASE THE MEMORY USED BY THE RESOURCES
imagedestroy($thumb);
imagedestroy($image);

Here is a similar teaching example, showing how to resize and crop an image.  You can see it in  action on my server, here:
https://iconoun.com/demo/image_resize_and_crop.php
<?php // demo/image_resize_and_crop.php
/**
 * Resize an image proportionally
 * Crop to specified size

 * https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28982826/resizeing-PHP-image.html
 */
error_reporting(E_ALL);

function resize_and_crop($original_image_url, $thumb_image_url, $thumb_w, $thumb_h, $quality=75)
{
    // ACQUIRE THE ORIGINAL IMAGE: http://php.net/manual/en/function.imagecreatefromjpeg.php
    $original = imagecreatefromjpeg($original_image_url);
    if (!$original) return FALSE;

    // GET ORIGINAL IMAGE DIMENSIONS
    list($original_w, $original_h) = getimagesize($original_image_url);

    // RESIZE IMAGE AND PRESERVE PROPORTIONS
    $thumb_w_resize = $thumb_w;
    $thumb_h_resize = $thumb_h;
    if ($original_w > $original_h)
    {
        $thumb_h_ratio  = $thumb_h / $original_h;
        $thumb_w_resize = (int)round($original_w * $thumb_h_ratio);
    }
    else
    {
        $thumb_w_ratio  = $thumb_w / $original_w;
        $thumb_h_resize = (int)round($original_h * $thumb_w_ratio);
    }
    if ($thumb_w_resize < $thumb_w)
    {
        $thumb_h_ratio  = $thumb_w / $thumb_w_resize;
        $thumb_h_resize = (int)round($thumb_h * $thumb_h_ratio);
        $thumb_w_resize = $thumb_w;
    }

    // CREATE THE PROPORTIONAL IMAGE RESOURCE
    $thumb = imagecreatetruecolor($thumb_w_resize, $thumb_h_resize);
    if (!imagecopyresampled($thumb, $original, 0,0,0,0, $thumb_w_resize, $thumb_h_resize, $original_w, $original_h)) return FALSE;

    // ACTIVATE THIS TO STORE THE INTERMEDIATE IMAGE
    // imagejpeg($thumb, 'thumbs/temp_' . $thumb_w_resize . 'x' . $thumb_h_resize . '.jpg', 100);

    // CREATE THE CENTERED CROPPED IMAGE TO THE SPECIFIED DIMENSIONS
    $final = imagecreatetruecolor($thumb_w, $thumb_h);

    $thumb_w_offset = 0;
    $thumb_h_offset = 0;
    if ($thumb_w < $thumb_w_resize)
    {
        $thumb_w_offset = (int)round(($thumb_w_resize - $thumb_w) / 2);
    }
    else
    {
        $thumb_h_offset = (int)round(($thumb_h_resize - $thumb_h) / 2);
    }

    if (!imagecopy($final, $thumb, 0,0, $thumb_w_offset, $thumb_h_offset, $thumb_w_resize, $thumb_h_resize)) return FALSE;

    // STORE THE FINAL IMAGE - WILL OVERWRITE $thumb_image_url
    if (!imagejpeg($final, $thumb_image_url, $quality)) return FALSE;
    return TRUE;
}


// USE CASE
echo '<a target="_blank" href="images/image_600x374.jpg">Original 600x374</a><br/>';
