Implements class.upload into Yii framework.

Class.Upload written by Colin VEROT (

This PHP script uploads and manipulates images very easily. The perfect script to generate thumbnails or create a photo gallery! It can convert, resize and work on uploaded images in many ways, apply effects, add labels, watermarks and reflections and other image editing features. You can use it for files uploaded through an HTML form, a Flash uploader, or on local files. It uses the GD library. This script is released under the GPL Version 2. If your project is not GPL, commercial licenses are available.

$img = Yii::app()->imagemod->load($_FILES['form_field']);
if ($img->uploaded) {
    $img->image_resize          = true;
    $img->image_ratio_y         = true;
    $img->image_x               = 50;
    $img->file_new_name_body = md5($img->file_src_name);
    if ($img->processed) {
      echo 'image resized';
      $img->clean(); //delete original image
    } else {
      echo 'error : ' . $img->error;
