Grayscaling images causes mangled image + segfault – PHP

Posted by: admin February 22, 2020 Leave a comment

Q(Question):

[php] /**
* Class for grayscaling image
*
* @author Phil Powell
* @version 1.2.1
* @package IMAGE_CATALOG::IMAGE
*/
class ImageGrayscaleGenerator extends ImageResizeComponents {

/
*———————————————————————————————————————————————————-
This class exists due to the rather poor performance of the
imagecopymergegray() command
Borrowing code snippet from http://us3.php.net/manual/en/functio…ymergegray.php
first line comment
Will perform actual grayscaling of image one pixel at a time.

$image_width, $image_height);
$igg->makeGray();
$igg = null;
}
[/php]

Whenever I run this class to grayscale an image, I wind up with the
resulting image being horribly mangled to the point of its original
format completely irreparable, furthermore, I wind up with an Apache
segfault and having to reboot the server to correct the problem.

Um, why?

ok, throw the class away.

this ‘explanation’ is totally off the charts as to being wrong. follow that
up with the magical ‘global $sections’ and you’ve got icing for the cake.
not to mention this class will leak like a fucking screen used to pan gold.
there is color allocation for every pixel, there is a count/sizeof operation
on this allocation inside a loop. next, it uses color averaging to derive
gray. last but certainly not least, this class totally ignores the fact that
images have alpha layers. do i dare mention that this class doesn’t clean up
after itself? it relies on YOU to destroy the images IT creates among other
niceties.

for all the ‘performance’ reasons the brain-dead author gives for creating
this beast, he shows far more neglect in his code…which by default will
run more slowly that imagecopymergegray() since it isn’t part of php native
code! plus, as you’ve already seen, it fucking blows up.

i’d look up imagecopymergegray() on php.net and see how the commenters there
are performing grayscale operations. they at least have the math
approximations for calculating gray a better match than ol’ phil here.

btw imho, any class that simply has procedural code (simply a set of
similar/related functions) should be singletons. this is a perfect example.
i’d have named the class ‘imaging’ and given an interface called
getGrayscale…

$igg = imaging::getGrayscale($image);

all the height/width shit can be discovered via the one arg $image and
nothing else in that class needs to be stored by the object instance. that
may be just me, but as far as i am concerned, i’m already waaaay past strike
three here.

You struck out. imagecopymergegray() fails as well, produces a total
non-image with segfault just as much as anything I have done. So much
for your brilliant cocky strategy. Try again.

well <as he scratches his head>, it kind of warns you NOT to use the code,
as in solving your current problem will not solve the others you will have

BALL TWO.

i said look at the commentor’s code and see how they grayscale. i have an
imaging class. it is my code. i’m not giving it to anyone as it brings me a
great deal of consulting work. you present me with code, and i’ll tell you
what’s wrong with it. that’s the way it goes here. and did you not catch
that that is EXACTLY what i did here.

i don’t care if gawd herself wrote it, it is STILL shit. glad to see though
that PHIL makes an EXACT COPY of SOMEONE ELSE’S code, then puts HIMSELF AS
THE AUTHOR when he (YOU) present it here. no wonder the commented
explanation shows complete lack of understanding of how references work. you
don’t understand the code you copied.

BALL THREE.

you post as ‘comp.lang.php’ not as PHIL (author of the shitty class).
knowing this know, both of us, does the code change somehow such that it
isn’t shitty…enough where i should justifiably refrain from calling it
shitty? having seen that this is NOT PHIL’S code in the first place (thanks
for outting yourself with the link), i can only be MORE correct in the use
of "brain-dead" since you try to pass it off as your own.

BALL FOUR…i can take my base now.

keep racking ’em up, PHIL.

hey genious, here’s an RBI:

foreach (
array(
$section ,
‘newImage’ ,
"${section}_width" ,
"${section}_height"
)
as $val
){ $this->$val =& ${$val}; }

what do you intend to do with this lil’ gem, eh? you do realize you’ll get
the same results by just:

$this->val =& "${section}_height";

ahhh, so when you plagerized the functionality, you copied it
incorrectly…i see.

Sorry, Steve. I agree with comp.lang.php. You added absolutely nothing

I’m glad he got this fixed in spite of your immature language and attitude.

Thank you, Jerry, very nice to hear this! Unfortunately no I never
did solve the problem; I am still not capable of grayscaling an image:

/**
* Make the image grayscale
*
* @access protected
*/
function makeGray() { // VOID METHOD
global $section;
for ($i = 0; $i <= 255; $i++) $colorNDX[$i] =
@imagecolorallocate($this->$section, $i, $i, $i);

for ($y = 0; $y < $this->{$section . ‘_height’}; $y++) {
for ($x = 0; $x < $this->{$section . ‘_width’}; $x++) {
$ndx = @imagecolorat($this->$section, $x, $y);
$red = ($ndx >16) & 0xFF;
$green = ($ndx >8) & 0xFF;
$blue = $ndx & 0xFF;
//$ndxColorArray = @imagecolorsforindex($this->$section, $ndx);
//$avg = floor(($ndxColorArray[‘red’] + $ndxColorArray[‘green’] +
$ndxColorArray[‘blue’]) / 3);
$col = $red * 0.299 + $green * 0.587 + $blue * 0.114;
@imagesetpixel($this->$section, $x, $y, $colorNDX[$col]);
}
}

//@imagecopy($this->newImage, $this->$section, 0, 0, 0, 0,
// $this->{$section . ‘_width’}, $this->{$section .
‘_height’});

}

No image is ever produced in spite of the code produced.

==================

I’m sorry, I thought you found a fix for it.

I looked at the code, but unfortunately I’m that great with the image
functions.

A couple of things I do see. First of all, you shouldn’t use a global
($section). Anything you need you should pass to the function or the
class itself.

Also, in your constructor you’re saving things in $this->$val, which is
incorrect in two counts. It should be $this->val, and you never defined
$val in your class. No idea what the code would do in this case.

And I’m not sure just what you’re trying to accomplish in the foreach()
loop in your constructor. If you’re trying to use this to create
variables in your class, that’s the hard way to go about it, and the
values you’re defining are temporary and will disappear at the end of
the function. Rather, you should just define them as members of the
class (probably private).

Also, I’m not sure what’s in $section, but I think you’re trying to get
the width and height of the image.

As for your makeGray() function –

You should first define $colorNDX as an array, i.e.

$colorNDX = array();

Your if statement following the for loop is unnecessary – you already
know it’s an array of 256 elements because you just created it. And the
following nested for statements are referencing variables which don’t
exist any more.

These are just off the top of my head, and may not be correct. But I
did find our class to be pretty hard to understand.

as i pointed out, it seems an attempt to dynamically create the class
interface names. nothing else makes sense.

hmmm…sounds familiar. ๐Ÿ™‚

so we agree that global $section is magic. i suppose you didn’t read my
initial response.

| As for your makeGray() function –
|
| You should first define $colorNDX as an array, i.e.
|
| $colorNDX = array();

that only matters if he’s displaying notices. otherwise he is dynamically
filling $colorNDX as an array type with allocated colors – he just doesn’t
check to see if the color has *already* been allocated and does this in a
loop. but then again, i already pointed out these two flaws.

| Your if statement following the for loop is unnecessary – you already
| know it’s an array of 256 elements because you just created it. And the

another reason why i said the author was ‘brain-dead’ thinking that this
version of code has better performance potential than the built-in php
function he was aiming to supplant!

| These are just off the top of my head, and may not be correct. But I
| did find our class to be pretty hard to understand.

so jerry, you found that my initial response to phil did not add anything to
the post. i find that interesting since you restated exactly 3 things there
i’ve already covered. and, off-the-top-of-MY-head i stated even more
potential problems with the op’s eye-sore coding.

if it’s the language i used that was offensive to you, then damn the
language…else, why nullify your opinion by restating what i’ve already
said!

as it is jerry, i did not know the op was in fact the author of this class.
perhaps i would have been more gentil and guarded with my flurry of insults
had i known before hand. i just find it hard for you to agree that i’ve not
added anything to resolving the problem at hand when you are mirroring my
findings…simply because you don’t like the tone of my delivery.

oh well.

later.

you said:

probably works from home b/c no company will hire me.

i said:

how is it that you say i *work* from home yet i am *not* employed?

you said:

i never said you did anything productive. (which is completely non-sequitur)

i think:

it’s too late at night for you…at least that’s the benefit of the doubt
i’ll afford you.

Even too stoopid to understand plain English. No wonder no one will
hire you.

Troll. And a stoopid one, also.

hey genious, the reference to *work* and *employment* is literal. your
firgurative relation to *productivity* is non-sequitur. hence, while you
show you understand english, you show a complete inability to apply it in
context. that’s probably a deeper theme for you that spans many areas in
your life – from logic to programming to …

further, you seem to think i’m not employed or unemployable because i call
shitty code ‘shitty code’ an am sometime abrupt in how i speak to some
people. christ, you really must have fallen asleep in your logic classes in
college – or did you even go?

i’m done with you, stucco.

lol.

May I recommend someone to you who probably _is_ at your currently
rather lonely level, where we, earthbound minions, can only look up to
and tell our children wonderful fairytale stories of?

Look up Alan Connor, if you haven’t already bumped into him at the six
mile high Ole Boys Network. He _surely_ will understand fully what you
mean and how we all fail to see the immense talent and wisdom you exhume.

In case you need further directions, Alan’s in the encyclopaedia of
utter bliss following the terms ‘Troll’, ‘A-hole’ and ‘Pseudologica
Fantastica’. Why they are in that particular order no-one down here knows.

@ Phil: Although there may be some valid points to be made (and done so
by others) about the actual code you posted, and while I share the
curiousness about the performance of your custom solution compared to
the off-the-shelf alternative, please ignore the trash talk. It’s
something that appearantly comes with usenet territory. It’s been in
fashion with some for years now, and it will probably outlive us all,
but after a while it’s easier living with this minor nuisance than with
a boil on your behind or mosquitoes in the bedroom at night.
And, of course, there’s always that shred of hope we will all once see
the light and are allowed to join the ranks of those miscomprehended

you really are a clueless fuckwit!

exactly WHAT would they be searching/keywording for? and exactly HOW would
they know ‘Steve’ was the applicant in front of them? wait, lemme guess…on
your resume in bold at the top, it reads: COMP.LANG.PHP (like a dumbass).

get a fucking clue. even if they did (which is IMPOSSIBLE), they’d certainly
agree that your code is shit. they may want me to tone down what name i use
for said rose, but we’d wink everytime we used the substitute.

as it is, my fte has enjoyed having me as an employee for about seven years
now. my pte has as well in a consultant position…under which contract, i
am on retainer. that should suggest to you that i have a *very* good
relationship there since they pay me each month regardless of whether i work
for them during that time or not – they know that whenever i do and for
whatever it is they have me do, i get it done. i’ve been pte this way for
two years now. and, except for my first consulting gig, all my pte contracts
have been by reference.

all that should tell you something; that you are wrong. even more, that you
should revisit the initial advice i gave you before the name calling
started, since it may be that i actually do know what i’m talking about.
