I am trying to combine all of the images on this page using PHP.

The source code of the page is just a div block surrounding 15 square images.

Is it possible for PHP to combine all of this images together into one so that they look like what they do right now?

Thanks.
Yes it is. You need GD though.
I am pretty sure that my web server has the GD, I just don't know how to use it to combine the pictures.
If it's only filled squares, you may want to look at this: http://ca.php.net/manual/en/function.imagefilledrectangle.php
This sounds rather familiar: http://www.cemetech.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=156688#156688 Smile
Well, I was wondering whether to continue that one thread. Just now I need to combine multiple images into one which is different from the OP in the other thread.
The solution I presented in that thread produces a single large image made up of multiple coloured rectangles, which is what I think you're after.
I want to combine specific images that could have varying lengths. The post that you had in the other thread generated a bunch of randomly colored squares rather than specific ones that I have correlated with the alphabet.

This is for the picture cipher I was talking about earlier and the cipher will convert input text into picture form. I want to make the output (which will be 100 X 5 if the total characters typed in the cipher is 500 and 56 x 1 if the total characters typed in the cipher is 56) become one complete picture.

I guess the real question that I am asking is how could I change, for example, the picture in here into one full picture?
The basic outline to merge multiple images using PHP and GD would be:

1) imcreatetruecolor() of the total output size
2) Repeatedly imcreatefrompng() (or appropriate format), then imcopy() into the output image
3) Either output the final image with headers directly, or save to a file.
Thank you for the input everyone, but I finished my project just about 1 hour ago. I used a similar version of Kerm's suggestion.

Code:

    for ($j = 0; $j < $lines; $j++) {
        for ($i = 0; $i < $cpl; $i++) {
           # echo "Row: " . $j . " Letter: " . $i . " Value: " . $split[($j*$cpl)+$i] . "<br>";

            $src = @imagecreatefrompng("images/" . $split[($j*$cpl)+$i] . ".png");
            @imagecopy($dest, $src, $i * $size, $j*$size, 0, 0, $size, $size);
        }
    }

The reason for the two for loops is for rows and columns.

I'll be posting my project in the Your Projects section soon for feedback.
Yup, that's exactly what I was saying. Smile You omitted the line showing your creation of $dest, but I'm sure it's as I suggested. Well done.
how can i marge two image from this code?????
please help me.

merge image is here upload/merge.png.



Code:

    /*** the maximum filesize from php.ini ***/
    $ini_max = str_replace('M', '', ini_get('upload_max_filesize'));
    $upload_max = $ini_max * 1024;

    /*** a message for users ***/
    $msg = 'Please select files for uploading';

    /*** an array to hold messages ***/

        for($i=0; $i < count($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name']);$i++)

            }
            else

                if(@copy($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'][$i],$upload_dir.'/'.$_FILES['userfile']['name'][$i]))
                {

                }
            }
        }

You're asking a lot and letting us shoot in the dark. This code is for an upload script. So, I'm assuming you want to merge the merge.png image to the file uploaded. Creating a script to merge two images would be as simple as adapting the code above your post to suit your needs.

If you're not familiar with PHP I suggest you look at http://www.php.net and searching what each of the functions do in the code we have here above you. Explore other functions and come up with an idea. Feel free to post your result and we'll be more than happy to aide you. But, as it stands, we have little inclination to help you: you haven't contributed help to other peoples projects, we have no info about the types of things required (is it going to be gif, png, jpg, etc?) and among a myriad of other small things this is a new account. You'll have to work with us and learn as we help you. If your code breaks or doesn't work we - I - expect you to fix it and not run back here and tell us it doesn't work.
