Service that provides API to manipulate images.


  • Resize, crop, pad, rotate, show and save images
  • Create image reflection
  • Crop whitespace
  • Sharpen images


Following steps are necessary to get this module working, considering a zf2-skeleton or very similar application:

  1. Run: php composer.phar require webino/webino-image-thumb:dev-develop
  2. Add WebinoImageThumb to the enabled modules list


  • GD 2.0+


  • For example add following code into the controller action, assume example image:

    // We encourage to use Dependency Injection instead of Service Locator
    $thumbnailer = $this->getServiceLocator()->get('WebinoImageThumb');
    $imagePath   = 'public/images/example.jpg';
    $thumb       = $thumbnailer->create($imagePath, $options = [], $plugins = []);
    $thumb->resize(100, 100);
    // or/and

    NOTE: If you don't know how to inject the WebinoImageThumb into action controller, check out test/resources

  • Use reflection plugin:

    $reflection = $thumbnailer->createReflection(40, 40, 80, true, '#a4a4a4');
    $thumb      = $thumbnailer->create($imagePath, [], [$reflection]);
  • Use whitespace cropper plugin:

    $cropper = $thumbnailer->createWhitespaceCropper();
    $thumb   = $thumbnailer->create($imagePath, [], [$cropper]);
  • Use sharpen plugin:

    $sharpen = $thumbnailer->createSharpen();
    $thumb   = $thumbnailer->create($imagePath, [], [$sharpen]);


The options array allows you to customize the behavior of the library a bit. Some of these options are implementation-specific, and are noted as such. So, let's first go over what options are available to us:

Option Name Description Default Value Valid Values
resizeUp Whether or not to scale an image up to the desired dimensions false true / false
jpegQuality What quality to save jpeg files with (how much compression to use, 100 being none) 100 1-100
correctPermissions Whether or not the library should attempt to correct file permissions. This will only work if you set up your PHP to allow chmod operations false true / false
preserveAlpha Whether or not to preserve alpha transparency in PNG files true true / false
alphaMaskColor What rgb color should be used for the alpha mask [255, 255, 255] [0-255, 0-255, 0-255]
preserveTransparency Whether or not to preserve transparency in GIF files true true / false
transparencyMaskColor What rgb color should be used for the transparency mask [255, 255, 255] [0-255, 0-255, 0-255]
interlace When the interlace option equals true or false call imageinterlace null true / false
