Here follows the php code to process post data.

The code contains image extension and size  verification as well as uploading and resizing image.


// This variable is used as a flag. The value is initialized with 0 (meaning no error found) 
and it will be changed to 1 if an errro occures. If the error occures the file will not be uploaded.

// checks if the form has been submitted
//reads the name of the file the user submitted for uploading
// if it is not empty
if ($image)
// get the original name of the file from the clients machine
$filename = stripslashes($_FILES['image']['name']);

// get the extension of the file in a lower case format
$extension = getExtension($filename);
$extension = strtolower($extension);
// if it is not a known extension, we will suppose it is an error, print an error message
and will not upload the file, otherwise we continue

if (($extension != "jpg") && ($extension != "jpeg") && ($extension != "png"))
echo '<h1>Unknown extension!</h1>';
// get the size of the image in bytes
// $_FILES[\'image\'][\'tmp_name\'] is the temporary filename of the file in which
//the uploaded file was stored on the server


//compare the size with the maxim size we defined and print error if bigger
if ($sizekb > MAX_SIZE*1024)
echo '<h1>You have exceeded the size limit!</h1>';

//we will give an unique name, for example the time in unix time format
//the new name will be containing the full path where will be stored (images folder)
$copied = copy($_FILES['image']['tmp_name'], $newname);
//we verify if the image has been uploaded, and print error instead
if (!$copied)
echo '<h1>Copy unsuccessfull!</h1>';
// the new thumbnail image will be placed in images/thumbs/ folder
// call the function that will create the thumbnail. The function will get as parameters
the image name, the thumbnail name and the width and height desired for the thumbnail

}} }}

//If no errors registred, print the success message and show the thumbnail image created
if(isset($_POST['Submit']) && !$errors)
echo "<h1>Thumbnail created Successfully!</h1>";
echo '<img src="'.$thumb_name.'">';
