Here's the scenario -
Website has some demonstrative images.
I create these images with the gimp - starting with a jpeg, adding a few
text layers and straight lines.
I then save as xcf in case I ever need to edit.
Then I export to jpeg, resize for thumb and export to jpeg again.
Admin interface to my web face needs to allow for upload of image.
What would be sweet is if I could just upload the gimp xcf in these
cases, and have ImageMagick do the export to jpeg and thumbnail creation.
Advantage of doing it this way - it will allow me to keep the original
xcf on the server along with the generated images.
I'd rather not have any code that spawns a shell, so I can only do this
if the pecl imageMagick module is up to snuff for xcf->jpeg conversion.
Anyone used it? Looks like I'll have to compile it, before I do that I
would like to know if it even is up to the task.
Second possible issue - I don't know how well imageMagick can deal with
an xcf file that uses text layer / fonts. I assume I'll have to install
the font used on the server (Adobe New Century Schoolbook Type 1 - yes,
I have license for it), but if so, how would I specify to ImageMagick
the font path?
Anyone done this sort of thing?
I may just do the export on my home box via gimp and just scp the xcf to
the server so a copy is stored there as well, but it would be nice to
just stick the xcf into a file upload field and just have php do the rest.
