When you resize it as you do, with the <img> height and width attributes, you are essentially leaving it up to the browser to resize it.
Predictably, Internet Explorer does a horrible job at this, while the other major browsers do a pretty good job resizing them.

If you want to ensure that the image is scaled smoothly, you can have PHP resize the image. The GD extension offers the imagecopyresamp led function, which does an excellent job resizing images. (See the documentation for examples on how to use it)

Note that image processing is a very resource intensive task, so if you frequently display you images resized, you should save the resized image to the server's file-system and serve it from there, rather then resize it for every request.

  1. <?php
  2. $query = "SELECT * FROM photo";
  3. $result = mysql_query ($query) or die('query error');
  4. $count = 0;
  5. while ($line = mysql_fetch_array($result, MYSQL_ASSOC)){

if you want to echo the image from DB (that is, you have the image itself stored there (as binary data)) you need a script of its own that fetches the image, applies any changes you want (e.g. resizing) and gives out the result.

This article about Uploading files into a MySQL database using PHP
might help you. It discusses a great way to handle image files, although it might not directly answer your "resizing" question. Just throwing it out there as a reference.

Thanks Atli ;)

Resizing images 'on the fly' (whenever you pull them from a database, etc) will eat into your resources like a fat kid into some delicious cake. When a photo is uploaded, use the GD extension that Atli linked to, and then save a seperate copy of the resized image. That way, you're saving resources, but sacrificing a small amount of HDD space.

Line 7, 8 should have {curly brackets}:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. if($width > $height) {$biggestSide = $width;}
  2. else {$biggestSide = $height;}
Other than that I can't see anything big... Will look again later if noone has replied.

Not true in this case; because the conditional statement only has one statement within it, curly brackets can be omitted.

Interesting. I had a feeling that was the case, but wasn't 100% sure. Anyway, I use them all the time for consistency. Thanks for the tip. Suggestion withdrawn.

Hi. I run a website for my band, and the other guys want an image gallery. I'm thinking it would be nice and easy, if we could just upload a jpg into a dir called "gallery/". When the client clicks the "gallery" link, a cgi script could search the gallery/ dir, and create thumbnails of any jpeg images that don't already have a thumbnail associated with them. The script could then generate a page of clickable thumbnails. A few questions:
