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.

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.

Now, not only is it super easy to grab images, it’s super easy to convert image types. But, before we get into that, let’s just quickly touch upon these new features as a whole. The Base64 data does not require headers to be used. I think it’s an awesome feature, but I’m not sure I like having to rely on mappings and tying in with settings external to the ColdFusion application server.

String getWidth – returns: We have looked at most of these types above. String, int, int, coldfusion.


Notice that to do this, I am specifying the source of the image the image object we created and the output format of JPG.

I don’t generally deal with these sorts of objects: I am grouping these two together because I confert sure what the difference really is. We don’t have to perform actions just on new images; we can perform them on existing image objects:.

The convert and write actions require a destination. The following example shows how to reduce the size of an cfimmage and display it in the browser: If you choose to use them, you do so at your own risk and discretion. Specify an integer for the value. Also notice that the destination image was a GIF file format. It’s not just important that the resultant covert is image data, it’s also important that the last thing in the URL be the file name.

The first part will cover basic reading and writing of images using CFImage and the related image manipulation functions. Let’s quickly cover writing images. CFImage provides us with tag-based access to only a small subset of the image functionality including:. Border thickness in pixels.

Quality and performance differ based on image type and the size of the source file. To specify the height or width in pixels, enter the integer, for example, Create the directories in the path before you specify the file.

String getClass – returns: When reading in an image, the source of the image can be any one of the following: The next one on the list is the Web-relative path:.


You can specify a specific interpolation algorithm by name cnvert example, hammingby image quality for example, mediumQualityor by performance for example, highestPerformance. I would like to know more about how CFFileServlet works and specifically how often that directory is cleaned out.

These return comma-delimited lists of the file types that ColdFusion can deal with. The following example shows how to change image quality to. No more are we, as developers, chained to third-party products. Values between 00 and FF are allowed.

Converting images

It does perfectly put the page together with no pixels being off Convertt is required, otherwise ColdFusion won’t know which headers and conversion algorithm to include. When it comes to writing images using ColdFusion 8 image functions, there are basically two options: However, WriteToBrowser actually returns the image inline to the page.

For example, using a URL with this query string: Image data typeuse the action “READ”: If I look in the root of my ColdFusion 8 test account, there is no such directory. This will read in the binary image into an object of coldfusion.
