  1. In Topic: Storing/Displaying PSD files - BLOB

    Posted 7 Apr 2014

    I don't run Photoshop. I will pass the info to my friend, if he hasn't already learned it in one of his classes.

    I will be more careful next time. My brain out runs my fingers thinking I had already typed what I thought.

    And no, I've never dealt with ActionScript before. Nor has my friend.

    Who says, or why always assume I'm ignoring/dismissing what the right way is modi123_1?
    It wasn't apart of my original post. (I had thought I put the question in my first post, sorry ArtificialSoldier)

    The gallery is small, I'm working on the styling with 2 of my own pictures to get things correct.
    Other then the upload to DB, I do have a upload to filesystem script to with a save path/image link to the DB, and a page off the server under my websites's 'BETA' directory trying to get that to work.

    I always work on contingency plans parallel to what I am originally working on.
    So please, don't always assume something automatically.

    And no, I wasn't talking about something that my friend can do in Photoshop. The question (if it every comes around) will be in a new post that is completely unrelated with using eCommerce. I'm working on a theory.

    What I was meaning to say modi123_1, a PHP conversion script to save a copy of the PSD to the upload folder. But also convert it to an jpeg to show on the website as a preview.

    Then only if my friend wants to make PSDs to sell for Web Design, which is where the eCommerce comes in... then I can take the PSD file and pack it in a ZIP folder for download after being purchased.
    However, like I said - its completely another top that I will post if I am stuck if that is something my friend wants to do.

    How about I stop getting posts to recommend using a FILE SYSTEM?!
    If my friend's website gets larger then expected, I will convert to a FILE SYSTEM! PLEASE READ CLOSER!

    As for working on a photogallery that uses a FILE SYSTEM, I am anticipating another project that will be much larger so I won't need to convert from BLOB to FILE SYSTEM.

    AND NO, ArtificialSoldier. The link I posted does NOT use MySQLi. I said that I took what it had, researched then converted from MySQL to MySQLi. You wouldn't have needed to ask if you had checked for yourself.
    And now I deem you no longer helpful.

    And ok, I finally get a decent partial answer. Thanks modi123_1. Could you point me to a psd->png/jpeg conversion script if my friend wanted to upload PSD files, since showing the actual PSD is 'a bad idea'?

    I've updated it using MySQLi with OOP.

    Where's the update?

    The update is on the webpages I need this.
    I read, I typed up with my variables. I researched, I changed to MySQLi.

    As the title suggest, PSD = gallery website

    Isn't a PSD a native Photoshop file?

    Yes. I had originally thought my friend can upload PSD files and have them viewable as an image, and if he wanted to make money by selling them for the PSD2HTML needs. I can add a small custom eCommerce system if he wants that, add code to put into a zip or rar or 7z file for download after they checkout. They are more of my specialty.

    So please, no 'BAD IDEA' replies.

    The first project I did with PHP was a photo gallery, that's a good project to learn a lot about PHP. I designed it so that I would have to use some filesystem functions, plus a database, I stored the images and thumbnails in a database, a login system so I had to learn about sessions, form processing, image processing, etc. It's a great first project, it covers a lot of basics with PHP. But, in practice, when I was displaying a page with several thumbnails then it became obvious that a database is just not well-suited for storing a bunch of files like that where you're showing multiple files per page (like 30 thumbnails). It's a great learning exercise, but in practice it's much more efficient to store only the filenames in the database, and keep the files on disk.

    Yes, I am aware of a filesystem function. I have another personal project where I am implementing that. Since this is only a gallery, I figured small and not a huge deal. And if this gets bigger then expected, I will change to the filesystem.
