Does someone know a good web service to resize images ? Either an open source (PHP/Python/Ruby) application, or a company providing a web service api.

So you're asking for a website?

http://www.picnik.com/ is what Flickr uses.

http://www.shrinkpictures.com/

Are you saying that Flicker does not process its pictures by itself ?

Thanks a lot, picnik seems exactly what I need - user123562 2009-07-24 13:54

Nope. Flickr doesn't have any way to modify images on their site other than rotation - endolith 2009-07-24 16:06

Make your own service at Utility Mill (http://utilitymill.com). Here's one that I wrote that adds a simulated gallery wrap - http://utilitymill.com/utility/Gallery_Wrap_Image. Define your own interface, parameters, processing logic, and you get not only an interactive web service, but you also get a callable API.

It requests username and password.. - Evgeny Veretennikov 2017-09-06 15:58
Yes, the owner of that service was getting spammed to death. I think pythonanywhere might be a more current option - PaulMcG 2017-09-06 16:05

Another alternative is the image processing web service at www.lightspun.com .

PHP provides image resizing support using image magick. Smart Image Resizer is a PHP script ready for use. Look at http://shiftingpixel.com/2008/03/03/smart-image-resizer/

To build your own PHP app, look at http://www.php.net/manual/de/ref.image.php

I know what can be done with PHP or Ruby with ImageMagick or GD but I'm looking for an external web-service api. I don't want this in my web app ! And if I could have resizing on-demand like gravatar as a url parameter or something similar it would be great - user123562 2009-06-16 13:35
I've taken a look at Smart Image Resizer it's a script and I'm looking for a standalone app/service. Thanks for your answer answer anyway - user123562 2009-06-16 13:42
