Error when using readImageBlob

Post by cyriltra »


I'm creating a image using HTML canvas and I upload it into a php script. However, if the image dimensions are too big, I got the following error message:
"Zero size image string passed". But I'm not sure what is the limitation... How can I increase the max image width and height if this is the issue ?

Here is my code:

1) Convert the canvas to a data string (javascript code)

Code: Select all

var dataURL = canvas.toDataURL({format:"jpeg", quality:0}),
strDataURI = dataURL.substr(dataURL.indexOf(',')+1);
then I upload the data using jquery $.post()

2) My PHP script to receive the image string and create the file

Code: Select all

$data = base64_decode($_POST["data"]);

$folder   = "images/";
$filename = uniqid(rand(), true);
$ext      = ".jpg";
$filepath = $folder.$filename.$ext;

$image = new Imagick();
if($image->readImageBlob($data)) {

  // Do stuff with $filepath

I'm using imagick (3.1.0RC2 ) with image magick (6.6.0-4)

Thank you for your help
