ThumbnailCreator - CodeCanyon Item for Sale


Ad: Bluehost hosting

A simple library that can create thumbnails from various file types, by use of ThumbnailProviders. Easily extendable with your own ThumbnailProviders.

Out of the box it can create thumbnails from Text files and image files as well as watermarked images. Also to add a provider just created a PHP class that implements IThumbnailProvider to add your own ThumbnailProvider.

ThumbnailProvider is easy to use, it’s as simple as this.

 <?php include "ThumbnailCreator.php"; $thumbCreator = new ThumbnailCreator(); $thumbCreator->createThumbnail("textfile.txt", "textFileThumb.png"); $thumbCreator->createThumbnail("imagefile.jpg", "imageFileThumb.jpg", 128, 128);?>
