Switch avatar upload from GD to Imgmagik

Is there already a plugin that can switch avatar upload from GD to Imgmagik? If not, is it even possible to write such a thing?

My server doesn't have enough memory allowance to handle the conversions through GD, even after modifying .htaccess and php.ini files

  • Unfortunately there exist no such plugins. But you can override the profile icon update action and can use imgmagick for this.

  • @Team Webgalli, thanks for the tip :) I'm guessing the code in Tidypics would be helpful for a beginner.


    Not quite sure what to do but I'll take a look at profileiconupdate.php and see if I can follow the code around to where the changes need to be made.
