Get Width/Height of Image

Last updated on:

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


  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.

Posting Code

We highly encourage you to post problematic HTML/CSS/JavaScript over on CodePen and include the link in your post. It's much easier to see, understand, and help with when you do that.

Markdown is supported, so you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

  function example() {
    element.innerHTML = "<div>code</div>";

There's a whole bunch of content on CSS-Tricks.
