PHP
Real-time image resizing, automatic optimization, and file uploading in PHP using ImageKit.io.
​ImageKit's PHP SDK provides comprehensive yet straightforward asset upload, transformation, optimization, and delivery capabilities that you can implement seamlessly in your existing PHP application.
This quick start guide shows you how to integrate ImageKit into your PHP application. The code samples covered here are hosted on Github - https://github.com/imagekit-developer/imagekit-php/tree/master/sample​.​
This guide walks you through the following topics:

Setting up ImageKit PHP SDK

Prerequisites

To use ImageKit PHP SDK, you must be using PHP version 5.6.0 or later with JSON PHP Extension and cURL PHP Extension enabled.

Create a new Project

Let's create a dummy project called sample using composer in a folder.
composer init --name imagekit/sample --type project
It will prompt a few options. Select defaults by pressing enter.

Install imagekit/imagekit using Composer

composer require imagekit/imagekit

Quick Examples

Create an ImageKit Instance

// Import autoloader from vendor
// If not using PSR-4 is not configured in composer.json file for your project
require_once __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';
​
use ImageKit\ImageKit;
// For demonstration purposes, the documentation would use https://ik.imagekit.io/demo as urlEndpoint
$imageKit = new ImageKit(
"publicKey",
"privateKey",
"urlEndpoint"
);

URL Generation

// For URL Generation
$imageURL = $imageKit->url(
[
'path' => '/default-image.jpg',
]
);
echo $imageURL;
// https://ik.imagekit.io/demo/default-image.jpg

File Upload

// For File Upload
$uploadFile = $imageKit->uploadFile([
'file' => 'file-url',
'fileName' => 'new-file'
]);

Generating URL for rendering images

ImageKit provides inbuilt media storage and integration with external origins. Refer to the documentation to learn more about URL endpoints and external Image origins supported by ImageKit.

Using Image path and image hostname or endpoint

This method allows you to create a URL using the image's path and the ImageKit URL endpoint (urlEndpoint) you want to use to access the image.

Example

$imageURL = $imageKit->url(
[
'path' => '/default-image.jpg',
'transformation' => [
[
'height' => '300',
'width' => '400'
]
]
]
);

Response

https://ik.imagekit.io/demo/tr:h-300,w-400/default-image.jpg

Using full image URL

This method allows you to add transformation parameters to an absolute ImageKit-powered URL. This method should be used if you have the absolute URL stored in your database.

Example

$imageURL = $imageKit->url([
'src' => 'https://example.com/default-image.jpg',
'transformation' => [
[
'height' => '300',
'width' => '400'
]
]
]);

Response

https://example.com/tr:h-300,w-400/default-image.jpg
The $imageKit->url() method accepts the following parameters.
Option
Description
urlEndpoint
Optional. The base URL is to be appended before the path of the image. If not specified, the URL Endpoint specified at the time of SDK initialization is used. For example, https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/endpoint/
path
Conditional. This is the path on which the image exists. For example, /path/to/image.jpg. Either the path or src parameter needs to be specified for URL generation.
src
Conditional. This is the complete URL of an image already mapped to ImageKit. For example, https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/endpoint/path/to/image.jpg. Either the path or src parameter needs to be specified for URL generation.
transformation
Optional. An array of objects specifying the transformation to be applied in the URL. The transformation name and the value should be specified as a key-value pair in the object. Different steps of a chained transformation can be specified as different objects of the array. The complete List of supported transformations in the SDK and some examples of using them are given later. If you use a transformation name that is not specified in the SDK, it gets applied as it is in the URL.
transformationPosition
Optional. The default value is path which places the transformation string as a path parameter in the URL. It can also be specified as query, which adds the transformation string as the query parameter tr in the URL. If you use the src parameter to create the URL, the transformation string is always added as a query parameter.
queryParameters
Optional. These are the other query parameters that you want to add to the final URL. These can be any query parameters and are not necessarily related to ImageKit. Especially useful if you want to add some versioning parameters to your URLs.
signed
Optional. Boolean. The default value is false. If set to true, the SDK generates a signed image URL adding the image signature to the image URL.
expireSeconds
Optional. Integer. It is used along with the signed parameter. It specifies the time in seconds from now when the signed URL will expire. If specified, the URL contains the expiry timestamp in the URL, and the image signature is modified accordingly.

Applying Chained Transformations, Common Image Manipulations & Signed URL

This section covers the basics:
The PHP SDK gives a name to each transformation parameter e.g. height for h and width for w parameter. It makes your code more readable. See the Full list of supported transformations.
πŸ‘‰ If the property does not match any of the available options, it is added as it is.\ e.g
[
'effectGray' => 'e-grayscale'
]
// and
[
'e-grayscale' => ''
]
// works the same
πŸ‘‰ Note that you can also use the h and w parameters instead of height and width.
For more examples check the demo application.

1. Chained Transformations as a query parameter

Example

$imageURL = $imageKit->url([
'path' => '/default-image.jpg',
'urlEndpoint' => 'https://ik.imagekit.io/demo/',
'transformation' => [
[
'height' => '300',
'width' => '400'
],
[
'rotation' => 90
],
],
'transformationPosition' => 'query'
]);

Response

https://ik.imagekit.io/demo/default-image.jpg?tr=h-300,w-400:rt-90

2. Image enhancement and color manipulation

Some transformations like Contrast stretch , Sharpen and Unsharp mask can be added to the URL with or without any other value. To use such transforms without specifying a value, specify the value as "-" in the transformation object. Otherwise, specify the value that you want to be added to this transformation.

Example

$imageURL = $imageKit->url([
'src' => 'https://ik.imagekit.io/demo/default-image.jpg',
'transformation' =>
[
[
'format' => 'jpg',
'progressive' => true,
'effectSharpen' => '-',
'effectContrast' => '1'
]
]
]);

Response

https://ik.imagekit.io/demo/tr:f-jpg,pr-true,e-sharpen,e-contrast-1/default-image.jpg

3. Resizing images

Let's resize the image to a width of 400 and a height of 300. Check detailed instructions on Resize, Crop, and Other Common Transformations​

Example

$imageURL = $imageKit->url(array(
'path' => '/default-image.jpg',
'transformation' => [
[
'height' => '300',
'width' => '400',
]
]
));

Response

https://ik.imagekit.io/demo/tr:w-400,h-300/default-image.jpg
400x300 image

4. Quality manipulation

You can use the Quality Parameter to change quality like this.

Example

$imageURL = $imageKit->url(array(
'path' => '/default-image.jpg',
'transformation' => [
[
'quality' => '40',
]
]
));

Response

https://ik.imagekit.io/demo/tr:q-40/default-image.jpg

5. Adding overlays to images

ImageKit.io allows overlaying images or text over other images for watermarking or creating a dynamic banner using custom text.

Example

$imageURL = $imageKit->url(array(
'path' => '/default-image.jpg',
'urlEndpoint' => 'https://ik.imagekit.io/pshbwfiho'
// It means first resize the image to 400x300 and then rotate 90 degree
'transformation' => [
[
'height' => '300',
'width' => '300',
'overlayImage' => 'default-image.jpg',
'overlaywidth' => '100',
'overlayX' => '0',
'overlayImageBorder' => '10_CDDC39' // 10px border of color CDDC39
]
]
));

Response

https://ik.imagekit.io/demo/tr:w-300,h-300,oi-default-image.jpg,ow-100,ox-0,oib-10_CDDC39/default-image.jpg

6. Signed URL

Signed URL that expires in 300 seconds with the default URL endpoint and other query parameters. For a detailed explanation of the Signed URL refer to this Official Doc.

Example

$imageURL = $imageKit->url([
"path" => "/default-image.jpg",
"queryParameters" =>
[
"v" => "123"
],
"transformation" => [
[
"height" => "300",
"width" => "400"
]
],
"signed" => true,
"expireSeconds" => 300,
]);

Response

https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/tr:h-300,w-400/default-image.jpg?v=123&ik-t=1654183277&ik-s=f98618f264a9ccb3c017e7b7441e86d1bc9a7ebb
You can manage Security Settings from the dashboard to prevent unsigned URLs usage. In that case, if the URL doesn't have a signature ik-s parameter or the signature is invalid, ImageKit will return a forbidden error instead of an actual image.
