For a hexadecimal value, use the form ” xxxxxx” or “xxxxxx”. Sign up using Converh and Password. ColdFusion supports the following default image formats on Macintosh, Windows, and Unix operating systems: Rotate an image 30 degrees clockwise.

That might prevent it scaling the image down which is the same thing as lowering resolution. If this value is blank, the height is calculated proportionately to the width. To start with, let’s look at ImageRead. To resize an image by one dimension for example, heightspecify the height and leave width value blank “”. If the destination file already exists, ColdFusion generates an error if the overwrite option is not set to yes. Description Resizes a ColdFusion image.

For instance, if you read in the image locally via CFImage and then called ImageWrite without a destination, it would overwrite the original image based on the internal Source. Also notice that the destination image was cfimafe GIF file format. The next one on the list is the Web-relative path:. Interpolation algorithms let you fine-tune how images are resampled.
