Get Image Dimensions Given Local File Path


#1

Hi All,

I have an image file (.jpg) that I can open via File.open() and I am
curious
on the easiest way to get the dimensions of this file. I’d prefer this
to
be a ruby/rails way and not a javascript method. Basically, I am
looking
for a way to verify that when a user uploads an image file that it is
not
larger than x by y. I’ve been looking around the web and I’m having
trouble
finding a way to do this. Also, if there is a way to just resize any
image
over some pre-defined size that would work as well.

Thanks in advance,
Ryan

try FlexImage http://beautifulpixel.com/flex_image/index.html

It allows you to crop, resize, etc. checkout the RDoc link above, and
see if that will work for you.

There are RoR plugins that allow you to resize and validate image
uploads. Try the file_column plugin:
