Description

resource imagecreatefromjpeg ( string filename )

imagecreatefromjpeg() returns an image identifier representing the image obtained from the given filename.

imagecreatefromjpeg() returns an empty string on failure. It also outputs an error message, which unfortunately displays as a broken link in a browser. To ease debugging the following example will produce an error JPEG:

Example 1. Example to handle an error during creation

<?php
function LoadJpeg($imgname)
{
    
$im = @imagecreatefromjpeg($imgname); /* Attempt to open */
    
if (!$im) { /* See if it failed */
        
$im  = imagecreatetruecolor(150, 30); /* Create a black image */
        
$bgc = imagecolorallocate($im, 255, 255, 255);
        
$tc  = imagecolorallocate($im, 0, 0, 0);
        
imagefilledrectangle($im, 0, 0, 150, 30, $bgc);
        
/* Output an errmsg */
        
imagestring($im, 1, 5, 5, "Error loading $imgname", $tc);
    }
    return
$im;
}
header("Content-Type: image/jpeg");
$img = LoadJpeg("bogus.image");
imagejpeg($img);
?>
