If your website allows users to upload photos, image cropping/resizing functionality certainly comes in handy. But users might not have access to image manipulation tools like Photoshop, so by providing a cropping/resizing feature you can allow users to upload photos from any device (e.g. tablets or phones) without them having to worry about the the final size. Furthermore, you can create different versions of the same image and also allow users to crop specific portions of uploaded picture.
In this article I’ll show you how to create an image cropping tool with the help of the ImageMagick PHP extension. This tutorial assumes that you already have the extension installed, so if not then be sure to read the manual.
