The ImageRead function performs the same operation as the cfimage read action . However, you cannot use the cfimage tag to read and create. You can use the cfimage tag to perform common image manipulation operations as a border; captcha; convert; info; read; resize; rotate; write; writeToBrowser. The other day, I needed to do some on-the-fly conversion of PNG image files to JPG format in ColdFusion. This was part of stop-gap measure at.

Of course, there is a hack to get around this: Notice that to do this, I am specifying the source of the image the image object we created and the output format of JPG. But, before we get into that, let’s just quickly touch upon these new features as a whole.

ColdFusion supports the following default image formats on Convsrt, Windows, and Unix operating systems: Color getCurrentGraphics – returns: I am grouping these cfimmage together because I am sure what the difference really is. The name of the ColdFusion image object that we are writing to disk.

The next input type is a URL sha-wing! You cannot display a GIF image in a browser. Quality and performance differ based on image type and converf size of the source file. The higher the blur factor, the more blurred the image also, the longer it takes to resize the image.

Poor image quality with highest performance. I don’t know how they handled that one since I thought Prodigy owned the patent on that or something sillybut it’s good to see that we have a huge variety of image formats that we can read and cgimage to. You can perform the following tasks with ColdFusion images: This argument is optional if the Source attribute of your image is available.


Converting images

Here, we are going to read an image from congert URL and save it to disk: If you specify false default or omit the argument, the Base64 is written to the file without any headers. Valid values are fractions that range from 0 through 1 the lower the number, the lower the quality.

The following example shows how to retrieve all of the information about an image: String, boolean – returns: Specify one of the following levels of text distortion: I would like to know more about how CFFileServlet works and specifically how often that directory is cleaned out.

Graphics2D getCurrentImage – returns: You can control the thickness of the border and its color. Most of you are not going to care about this one all that much, but for those of you who are interested in the underlying Java methods of the coldfusion.

The name of the ColdFusion image object you are going to write. Enter a six-digit value, which specifies the RGB value.

CFImage Functionality is Just Awesome!

String getHeight – returns: On the flip side, however, I do like this for the very reason that the image request is not going to the ColdFusion server. Samuel Dealey 1 7. To overcome this, you can set the Overwrite attribute to true defaults to false – this will overwrite any existing files of the same name.

Notice that the destination path is not an absolute server path – it’s a path relative to the current Web page. Sorry that this went longer than intended, but this introduction only scratched the surface. Now that we have a general overview of what kind of new and exciting image manipulation features are available in ColdFusion 8 and how many image types can be utilized, let’s get into the meat of this part of the tutorial: The following table describes the algorithms and their named equivalents based on average test results: When it comes to functions, if you want to read in Base64 image data, you have to use the ImageReadBase64 function: Therefore, if you are in an included template, you might get files stored in unexpected places if you don’t fully grasp this concept.

cfimage Code Examples and CFML Documentation

Dump out this struct. If you want to actually read the image into a ColdFusion variable in the form of the coldfusion. If I can just figure out why that image is 5 pixels off.

You can use the write action to change the quality of a JPEG image to reduce file size. While this reads the image into memory, if you CFDump it out, you’ll get the same output as if you were dumping out the INFO action result. Creates a ColdFusion image that can be manipulated by using image functions. The first part will cover basic reading and writing of images using CFImage and the related cfimzge manipulation functions. The following example shows how to reduce the size of an image and display it in the browser: Quality of the JPEG destination file.

The next input type is a Base64 encoded string.
