Description

This function creates thumbnails from images. The function saves the new thumbnail images in a thumbnails subdirectory inside the original directory. The system prepends thumbnail filenames with tn_ (for example, tn_picture.jpg).

Warning:

cPanel API 1 is deprecated. Do not use this function. Instead, we strongly recommend that you use the following newer functions:

Important:

In cPanel & WHM version 76 and later, when you disable the WebServer role, the system disables this function. For more information, read our How to Use Server Profiles documentation.

Examples 


 LiveAPI PHP Class
$cpanel = new CPANEL(); // Connect to cPanel - only do this once.
$image_thumbnail = $cpanel->api1('ImageManager','thumbnail',array('images.jpg','10','10')); // Call the function.


Note:

For more information, read our Guide to the LiveAPI System.

 LiveAPI Perl Module

 cPanel Tag System (deprecated)


Warning:

In cPanel & WHM version 11.30 and later, cPanel tags are deprecated. We provide this example to help developers move from the old cPanel tag system to our LiveAPI system. We strongly recommend that you only use the LiveAPI system to call the cPanel APIs.
