Image cache to get any version of an image.

     * Image-cache script to convert and store images on-the-fly to any size.
     * (c) k at
     * You upload a lot of image assets to your site, but will need 
     * several sizes of them for various reasons. For example You'll need a big 
     * resolution version for downloading (original), also a smaller for previewing 
     * to the visitors and even another for an image-list page.
     * This script will create any version of the image using imagemagick and store 
     * it next to the original file. Images already generated are served without 
     * PHP, so You'll see no performance loss.
     * You define ImageMagick commands in this script, giving them aliases.
     * When You need an image converted, You sppecify the command in the URL of the 
     * image. If the image (of this size/version) does not exist yet, this script 
     * will generate it and save it next to the original image. The next time this 
     * image is requested, it will be served from the filesystem, without any 
     * overhead, thanks to the mod_rewrite rule You save into the image folder's 
     * .htaccess 
     * Requirement: ImageMagick installed in the server. See for information.
     * You will also need Apache with mod_rewrite.
     * EXAMPLE
     * Suppose You keep image assets under web/images, and have an image called greenfrog.jpg (size: 1200x1200px)
     * saved under web/images/animals/green/greenfrog.jpg. The image is accessible under
     * One day You realize that You need a 180x180px version of the image on the frontpage.
     * You can upload another variation, but with this script, you can just specify the new size in the URL, like this:
     * To be able to do this, You will need to save a .htaccess file into the 
     * images folder (see below), plus set the ImageMagick command associated with 180x180.
     * (The reson for the latter is security: if You run any command from the URL 
     * You open the door for DOS attacks.)
     * INSTALL
     * - save this script to the root of the images folder
     * - create a .htaccess file next to it, with this content: 
     * <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
     *   RewriteEngine on
     *   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
     *   RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
     *   RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?img=$1 [L,QSA]
     * </IfModule>
     * - specify the commands You want to accept in the commands array
     * - modify the image URL-s to take advantage of the script.
     * - done :)
     * AFAIK all possible DOS attacks are handled (can't generate images forever),
     * plus the script takes care not allow access to files outside the 
     * directory it is saved to.
     * No guarantee or warranty of any kind!
     * TIP ME!
     * If You find this script useful, please consider giving me a tip!
     * Just follow this link to donate: 
    // find the convert command
    // you can hard-code it to make the srcipt faster, example:
    // $convert = '/usr/bin/convert';
    $convert = trim(shell_exec('which convert'));
    // this directory
    $thisDir = dirname(__FILE__).'/';
    // set commands via aliases
    $commands = array(
      '120x120' => '-geometry 120x120', // convert so no dimension is larger than 120px and keep ratio. For more commands see ImageMagick's documentation
    // die if no image is set
    if(!$img = $_GET['img']) die('no img');
    // make the filename safe to use
    //$img = strip_tags(htmlspecialchars($img));
    $img = trim($img);
    $img = str_replace('..', '', $img); // no going up in directory tree
    // get the command specified in the filename
    // example: big_green_frog.thumb150.jpg
    preg_match("/\.([^\.]*)\..{3}$/", $img, $match); // this also means no double commands (possible DOS attack)
    if(!$command = $match[1]) die('no command');
    if(!$commands[$command]) die('command does not exist');
    // get original filename
    // example: big_green_frog.jpg
    $imgFile = str_replace('.'.$command, '', $img, $replaceCount);
    // stop the possibility of creating unlimited files
    // example (attack): abc.120.jpg, abc.120.120.jpg, abc.120.....120.jpg - this could go on forever
    if($replaceCount > 1) die('command specified more than 1 time');
    // die if the original file does not exist
    if(!file_exists($thisDir.$imgFile)) die('original file does not exist');
    // prepare the command
    $preparedCommand = $convert .' '. $commands[$command] .' '. $thisDir . $imgFile .' '. $thisDir . $img;
    // run the conversion
    // redirect the browser to the new image - this is more reliable than fpassthru
    header("Location: http://".$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].dirname($_SERVER['PHP_SELF']).'/'.$img);
