  • Ask Ben: CFImage And Dynamic Image Compression With File Size Limits

    Posted on Sep 13, 2010 at 4:16 PM

    Zachary: Unless I'm missing something, maybe you just need to increase the timeout variable for the template running the code. (cfsetting requesttimeout) Another thought might be to get the dimensions and if much more than your default size, do a major resize first, then start looping for desired ... read more »

    @Nathan, If I understand the question, it's quite easy. (In my app, I make a thumb right after the last save of the full file.) Since you have the image object (In Ben's code--"photo") you just do another ImageScaleToFit (or whichever function for your needs) on the photo object; then do a "write... read more »

  • Learning ColdFusion 9: Implicit Struct And Array Usage

    Posted on Jul 13, 2009 at 10:34 AM

    This isn't really about cf9, but the implicit struct creation. I've avoided implicit struct use because of way that cf makes the keys uppercase (same as when use dot notation as creation method prior to ability to do implicit).

Rather than give the generalizations ... read more »

    I tried a bit more today and nothing that would indicate any trend. Must just be too many variables at work. Your file size stuff makes the most sense--until perhaps, someone comes up with a way to read quality directly. Thanks for all the help! Will post again if I find anything of interest on thi... read more »

    Thanks, Ben, for ongoing thought on this. Checked a bit to see if cfimage data was any different on a lower quality image than higher one. Nothing different, so nothing to read there that might give info. Building on your filesize idea, I tried to see if any trends that would show up among various ... read more »
