GD "No JPEG / GIF support" (ImageCreateFromJpeg)
« on: November 02, 2003, 12:50:23 am »

Errors uploading Jpeg or Gif ?

You need to find more info then you ever thought existed about your php installation
make a file with just
Code: [Select]
<?php phpinfo(); ?> in it and view it in your browser from your server (don't forget to delete when done, some see this a security risk if not).
The page says which GD version you have.

Because only those versions fully support JPEG images and Coppermine works with those.

GIF support is only supported in GD 1.6.x or below due to license restrictions.
GIF has also a lower image quality and therefore not supported in Coppermine.
ImageCreateFromGif is not supported untill 7th of July 2004 because then the license is worldwide ended.

GD could also be compiled including GIF support but then you need:
- a compiler
- own server that you can control fully
- latest OS

If not:
Ask your host if they want to install GD 2.x for your site.
There are 2 kinds of users in this world: satisfied and complainers.
Why do we never hear something from the satisfied users?
