Image::GD::Thumbnail - produce thumbnail images with GD
# Load your source image
open IN, 'E:/Images/test.jpg' or die "Could not open.";
my $srcImage = GD::Image->newFromJpeg(*IN);
# Create the thumbnail from it, where the biggest side is 50 px
my ($thumb,$x,$y) = Image::GD::Thumbnail::create($srcImage,50);
# Save your thumbnail
open OUT, ">E:/Images/thumb_test.jpg" or die "Could not save ";
print OUT $thumb->jpeg;
This module uses the GD library to create a thumbnail image with no side bigger than you specify.
The subroutine create takes two arguments: the first is a GD image object, the second is the size, in pixels, you wish the image's longest side to be. It returns a new GD image object (the thumbnail), as well as the x and y dimensions, as (integer) scalars.
None by default.
