Ever wished you could be able to upload your images, and didn’t care about manually resizing it? If yes, here is a real time saver: A php script that can resize your images “on the fly”.
To achieve this recipe, follow these simple steps:
- Get the script and save it on your computer (I assume you named it timthumb.php)
- Use a FTP program to connect to your server and create a new directory called scripts. Upload the timthumb.php file in it.
- Once done, you can display images like this:
<img src="/scripts/timthumb.php?src=/images/whatever.jpg&h=150&w=150&zc=1" alt="" />
In other words, you just have to call the timthumb.php file and pass your image as a parameter. same goes for desired width or height.
That’s all. What a real life saver this script is!
Thanks to Darren Hoyt for this awesome script!
