This package provides an easy to use class to manipulate images. Under the hood it leverages Glide to perform the manipulations.

Here's an example of how the package can be used:

	->modify(['w'=> 50, 'filt'=>'greyscale'])


You can install the package through Composer.

composer require spatie/laravel-glide

In Laravel 5.5 the service provider and facade will automatically get registered. In older versions of the framework just add the service provider and facade in config/app.php file:

'providers' => [


'aliases' => [
    'GlideImage' => Spatie\Glide\GlideImageFacade::class,

You can publish the config file of the package using artisan.

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Spatie\Glide\GlideServiceProvider"

The config file looks like this:


return [

     * The driver that will be used to create images. Can be set to gd or imagick.
    'driver' => 'gd',


Here's a quick example that shows how an image can be modified:

	->modify(['w'=> 50, 'filt'=>'greyscale'])

Take a look at Glide's image API to see which parameters you can pass to the modify-method.


You can run the tests with:

composer test
