The pure PHP graphics library
This library implements input, output and processing of raster images in pure PHP, so that image processing extensions (Gd, Imagick) are not required.
This allows developers to eliminate some portability issues from their applications.
- Format support includes PNG, GIF, BMP and the Netpbm formats (See docs: File formats).
- Support for scaling, cropping, format conversion and colorspace transformations (See docs: Image operations).
- Pure PHP: This library does not require Gd, ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick extensions.
- PHP 7.0 or newer.
zlibextension, for reading PNG files.
gfx-php with composer:
composer install mike42/gfx-php
The basic usage is like this:
<?php use Mike42\GfxPhp\Image; $img = Image::fromFile("colorwheel256.png"); $img -> write("test.gif");

This project is open to all kinds of contributions, including suggestions, documentation fixes, examples, formats and image processing algorithms.
Some ideas for improvement listed in the issue tracker. Code contributions must be releasable under the LGPLv3 or later.
As a small project, we can't do everything. In particular,
gfx-php is not likely to ever perform non-raster operations:
- vector image formats (PDF, SVG, EPS, etc).
- anything involving vector fonts
This repository uses test files from other projects:
- Imagine, which wraps available libraries.
