Bug #23482 Wrong value returned from imageColorTransparent()
Submitted: 2003-05-04 18:24 UTC Modified: 2003-06-02 23:21 UTC
From: author at ninelivescomic dot com Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: GD related
PHP Version: 4.3.1 OS: Linux 2.4.20
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Hi, I'm using php to return the color of a 4-bit png image with binary transparency. This code:
/* begin php code */
$imgBase= imageCreateFromPNG("20030429a.png");
print(imageColorTransparent($imgBase));
/* end php code */
prints -1, which I assume means "no transparent color". I'm sure there IS a transparant color in the image. I've tried this with both an optimized and non-optimized palette, same results. I'm using gd library 1.6.2, and can send the image if that helps.

GD 1.6 doesn't support transparency, so that's the problem. Compile PHP with --with-gd (and nothing else behind it) and it will use the internal bundled GD which supports true color images and transparency.

Recompiled php, using gd bundled (2.0 compatible). This code:
<?php
$imgStrip= imageCreateFromPNG("20030509.png");
header("Content-type: image/png");
imagePNG($imgStrip);
imageDestroy($imgStrip);
?>
Displays the image without the transparency, even though I know it has it. Displaying imageing <IMG> tag looks fine.

Please try using this CVS snapshot:

  http://snaps.php.net/php4-STABLE-latest.tar.gz
 
For Windows:
 
  http://snaps.php.net/win32/php4-win32-STABLE-latest.zip

And we also need that exact same picture you're trying with..

Sorry for the delay. I'm using php on a shared host environment so shuffling around and recompiling different versions is a bit problematic. I'd like to exhaust other possibilities first. Where should I send the picture and source code?

Send them to iliaa@php.net

Items sent. Here's a copy if you need it:

test.html:
<html>
<body bgcolor= "#ffffcc">
<p>Using &lt;img src="test.php" /&gt;:<br />
<img src="test.php" /></p>
<p>Using &lt;img src="test.png" /&gt;:<br />
<img src="test.png" /></p>
</body></html>

test.php:
<?php
$gdTest= imageCreateFromPNG("test.png");
header("Content-type: image/png");
imagePNG($gdTest);
imageDestroy($gdTest);
?>

test.png was copied directly from http://static.php.net/www.php.net/images/logos/php-med-trans.png. Running test.html shows the same picture, one with transparency on, one with it off.

Thanks for your help!

Figured out a workaround.
