Get Width/Height of Image

If all you have for an image is the URL, you can still find the dimensions:

<?php

  list($width, $height, $type, $attr) = getimagesize("url/to/image.jpg");

  echo "Image width " . $width;
  echo "Image height " . $height;
  echo "Image type " . $type;
  echo "Attribute " . $attr;

?>

    Good snippet. Thanx. My question aside a little bit but… How to set Facebook Canvas Height and Width with jQuery? Native methods do not work sometimes and they only can encrease height but can not decrease.

  • Use Markdown, and it will escape the code for you, like `<div class="cool">`.
  • Use triple-backticks for blocks of code.
    ``` 
    <div>
      <h1>multi-line block of code</h1>
      <span>be cool yo.</span>
    </div>
    ```
  • Otherwise, escape your code, like <code>&lt;div class="cool"&gt;</code>. Markdown is just easier though.
