masking images

Postby gonzrona » Sun Aug 21, 2011 10:30 am

I am making a site where users upload images for their profile. I already have that working just fine. However, I want the users images to be circles. From what I have read I believe that I can not crop an image into a circle, I will have to mask the image to make part of the image transparent. I have really no idea where to start. I would really appreciate it if anyone could point me in the right direction, or maybe even some sample code!!!

depending on the color of your page background, the easiest solution I can think of would be to have a png mask that you can apply to your images just like a watermark.

try this....

Code: Select all

$img1 = imagecreateFromjpeg("image.jpg");
$x=imagesx($img1)-$width ;

$img2 = imagecreatetruecolor($x, $y);
$bg = imagecolorallocate($img2, 255, 255, 255);
imagefill($img2, 0, 0, $bg);

$e = imagecolorallocate($img2, 0, 0, 0);

$r = $x <= $y ? $x : $y;
imagefilledellipse($img2, ($x/2), ($y/2), $r, $r, $e);

imagecolortransparent($img2, $e);

imagecopymerge($img1, $img2, 0, 0, 0, 0, $x, $y, 100);

imagecolortransparent($img1, $bg);

header("Content-type: image/png");
