PHP - Image transparency with resize

(I originally posted this article on this PHP website.)


I've made a very simple script that will retain transparency of images especially when resizing.

NOTE: Transparency is only supported on GIF and PNG files.

Parameters:

$new_image = image resource identifier such as returned by imagecreatetruecolor(). must be passed by reference
$image_source = image resource identifier returned by imagecreatefromjpeg, imagecreatefromgif and imagecreatefrompng. must be passed by reference

<?php

function setTransparency($new_image,$image_source)
{
$transparencyIndex = imagecolortransparent($image_source);
$transparencyColor = array('red' => 255, 'green' => 255, 'blue' => 255);

if ($transparencyIndex >= 0) {
$transparencyColor = imagecolorsforindex($image_source, $transparencyIndex);
}

$transparencyIndex = imagecolorallocate($new_image, $transparencyColor['red'], $transparencyColor['green'], $transparencyColor['blue']);
imagefill($new_image, 0, 0, $transparencyIndex);
imagecolortransparent($new_image, $transparencyIndex);

}
?>


Sample Usage: (resizing)

<?php
$image_source = imagecreatefrompng('test.png');
$new_image = imagecreatetruecolor($width, $height);
setTransparency($new_image,$image_source);
imagecopyresampled($new_image, $image_source, 0, 0, 0, 0, $new_width, $new_height, $old_width, $old_height);
?>
