i have problems
so does my php

observe:
PHP Code:
$imgsize getimagesize($form_data);
$imgwidth $imgsize['0'];
$imgheight $imgsize['1'];
$imgtype $imgsize['2'];
                  
$size filesize($form_data);
                
$image substr($form_data_type,0,5);
$image strtolower($image);
                
$image_out ImageCreate($bannerwidth,$bannerheight);
$image_in ImageCreateFromJpeg($form_data);
$data imagecopyresized($image_out,$image_in,0,0,0,0,$bannerwidth,$bannerheight,$imgwidth,$imgheight);
$data addslashes(fread(fopen($image_out,"r"), filesize($data))); 
assume that all the variables come from a form with a browse field, with a name of form_data
this is valid code, modified, that i used to read in an image and place it into the database
all i want to do is resize that image before i place it in the database
after hours of reading through the php.net and other sites' help, im still stuck.
anyone have any idea how to help?
