PHP SDK for ImageKit

Packagist Packagist License: MIT codecov Twitter Follow PHP Test CI PHP Coverage CI Wiki Documentation

PHP SDK for ImageKit implements the new APIs and interface for different file operations.

ImageKit is complete media storage, optimization, and transformation solution that comes with an image and video CDN. It can be integrated with your existing infrastructure - storage like AWS S3, web servers, your CDN, and custom domain names, allowing you to deliver optimized images in minutes with minimal code changes.

Key Features

Requirements

Version Support

SDK Version PHP 5.4 PHP 5.5 PHP 5.6 PHP 7.x PHP 8.x
4.x ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
3.x ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
2.x ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
1.x ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️

Breaking changes

Upgrading from 3.x to 4.x version

  1. Overlay syntax update
  • In version 4.0.0, we've removed the old overlay syntax parameters for transformations, such as oi, ot, obg, and more. These parameters are deprecated and will start returning errors when used in URLs. Please migrate to the new layers syntax that supports overlay nesting, provides better positional control, and allows more transformations at the layer level. You can start with examples to learn quickly.
  • You can migrate to the new layers syntax using the raw transformation parameter.

Installation

You can install the bindings via Composer. Run the following command:

composer require imagekit/imagekit

To use the bindings, use Composer's autoload:

require_once('vendor/autoload.php');

Usage

You can use this PHP SDK for three different methods - URL generation, file upload, and file management. The usage of the SDK has been explained below.

  • URL Generation
  • File Upload
  • File Management

Getting Started

  1. Sign up for ImageKit – Before you begin, you need to sign up for an ImageKit account
  2. Get your API Keys from developer options inside the dashboard.
  3. Minimum requirements – To use PHP SDK, your system must meet the minimum requirements, including having PHP >= 5.6. We highly recommend having it compiled with the cURL extension and cURL 7.16.2+ compiled with a TLS backend (e.g., NSS or OpenSSL).
  4. Install the SDK – Using Composer is the recommended way to install the ImageKit SDK for PHP. The SDK is available via Packagist under the imagekit/imagekit package. If Composer is installed globally on your system, you can run the following in the base directory of your project to add the SDK as a dependency:
    composer require imagekit/imagekit
    
    Please see the Installation section for more detailed information about installing.
  5. Using the SDK – The best way to become familiar with how to use the SDK is to follow the examples provided in the quick start guide.

Quick Examples

Create an ImageKit Instance

// Require the Composer autoloader.
require 'vendor/autoload.php';
use ImageKit\ImageKit;  
  
$imageKit = new ImageKit(
    "your_public_key",
    "your_private_key",
    "your_url_endpoint"
);

URL Generation

// For URL Generation, works for both images and videos
$imageURL = $imageKit->url(
    [
        'path' => '/default-image.jpg',
    ]
);
echo $imageURL;

File Upload

// For File Upload
$uploadFile = $imageKit->uploadFile([
    'file' => 'file-url', # required, "binary","base64" or "file url"
    'fileName' => 'new-file' # required
]);

Demo application

URL generation

Using relative file path and URL endpoint

This method allows you to create an URL to access a file using the relative file path and the ImageKit URL endpoint (urlEndpoint). The file can be an image, video, or any other static file supported by ImageKit.

Example

$imageURL = $imageKit->url(
    [
        'path' => '/default-image.jpg', 
        'transformation' => [
            [
                'height' => '300', 
                'width' => '400'
            ]
        ]
    ]
);

Response

https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/tr:h-300,w-400/default-image.jpg 

Using full image URL

This method allows you to add transformation parameters to an absolute URL. For example, if you have configured a custom CNAME and have absolute asset URLs in your database or CMS, you will often need this.

Example

$imageURL = $imageKit->url([
    'src' => 'https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/endpoint/default-image.jpg',
    'transformation' => [
        [
            'height' => '300',
            'width' => '400'
        ]
    ]
]);

Response

https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/endpoint/tr:h-300,w-400/default-image.jpg  

The $imageKit->url() method accepts the following parameters.

Option Description
urlEndpoint Optional. The base URL to be appended before the path of the image. If not specified, the URL Endpoint specified at the time of SDK initialization is used. For example, https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/endpoint/
path Conditional. This is the path at which the image exists. For example, /path/to/image.jpg. Either the path or src parameter needs to be specified for URL generation.
src Conditional. This is the complete URL of an image already mapped to ImageKit. For example, https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/endpoint/path/to/image.jpg. Either the path or src parameter needs to be specified for URL generation.
transformation Optional. An array of objects specifying the transformation to be applied in the URL. The transformation name and the value should be specified as a key-value pair in the object. Different steps of a chained transformation can be specified as different objects of the array. The complete List of supported transformations in the SDK and some examples of using them are given later. If you use a transformation name that is not specified in the SDK, it gets applied as it is in the URL.
transformationPosition Optional. The default value is path which places the transformation string as a path parameter in the URL. It can also be specified as query, which adds the transformation string as the query parameter tr in the URL. The transformation string is always added as a query parameter if you use the src parameter to create the URL.
queryParameters Optional. These are the other query parameters that you want to add to the final URL. These can be any query parameters and are not necessarily related to ImageKit. Especially useful if you want to add some versioning parameters to your URLs.
signed Optional. Boolean. The default value is false. If set to true, the SDK generates a signed image URL adding the image signature to the image URL.
expireSeconds Optional. Integer. It is used along with the signed parameter. It specifies the time in seconds from now when the signed URL will expire. If specified, the URL contains the expiry timestamp in the URL, and the image signature is modified accordingly.

Applying chained transformations, common image manipulations & signed URL

This section covers the basics:

The PHP SDK gives a name to each transformation parameter e.g. height for h and width for w parameter. It makes your code more readable. See the Full list of supported transformations.

👉 If the property does not match any of the available options, it is added as it is. For example:

[
    'effectGray' => 'e-grayscale'
]
// and
[
    'e-grayscale' => ''
]
// works the same

👉 Note that you can also use the h and w parameters instead of height and width.

For more examples, check the Demo Application.

1. Chained transformations as a query parameter

Example

$imageURL = $imageKit->url([
    'path' => '/default-image.jpg',
    'urlEndpoint' => 'https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/endpoint/', 
    'transformation' => [
        [
            'height' => '300',
            'width' => '400'
        ],
        [
            'rotation' => 90
        ],
    ], 
    'transformationPosition' => 'query'
]);

Response

https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/endpoint/default-image.jpg?tr=h-300,w-400:rt-90

2. Image enhancement and color manipulation

Some transformations like contrast stretch , sharpen and unsharp mask can be added to the URL with or without any other value. To use such transforms without specifying a value, specify the value as "-" in the transformation object. Otherwise, specify the value that you want to be added to this transformation.

Example

$imageURL = $imageKit->url([
    'src' => 'https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/endpoint/default-image.jpg', 
    'transformation' => 
    [
        [
            'format' => 'jpg', 
            'progressive' => true,
            'effectSharpen' => '-', 
            'effectContrast' => '1'
        ]
    ]
]);

Response

https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/endpoint/tr:f-jpg,pr-true,e-sharpen,e-contrast-1/default-image.jpg 

3. Resizing images and videos

Let's resize the image to width 400 and height 300. Check detailed instructions on resize, crop, and other Common transformations

Example

$imageURL = $imageKit->url(array(
    'path' => '/default-image.jpg',
    'transformation' => [
        [
            'height' => '300',
            'width' => '400',
        ]
    ]
));

Response

https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/tr:w-400,h-300/default-image.jpg

4. Quality manipulation

You can use the quality parameter to change quality like this.

Example

$imageURL = $imageKit->url(array(
    'path' => '/default-image.jpg',
    'transformation' => [
        [
            'quality' => '40',
        ]
    ]
));

Response

https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/tr:q-40/default-image.jpg

5. Adding overlays

ImageKit.io enables you to apply overlays to images and videos using the raw parameter with the concept of layers. The raw parameter facilitates incorporating transformations directly in the URL. A layer is a distinct type of transformation that allows you to define an asset to serve as an overlay, along with its positioning and additional transformations.

Text as overlays

You can add any text string over a base video or image using a text layer (l-text).

For example:

$imageURL = $imageKit->url(array(
    'path' => '/default-image.jpg',
    'urlEndpoint' => 'https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id'
    
    'transformation' => [
        [
            'height' => '300',
            'width' => '400',
            'raw': "l-text,i-Imagekit,fs-50,l-end"
        ]
    ]
));

Sample Result URL

https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/tr:h-300,w-400,l-text,i-Imagekit,fs-50,l-end/default-image.jpg

Image as overlays

You can add an image over a base video or image using an image layer (l-image).

For example:

$imageURL = $imageKit->url(array(
    'path' => '/default-image.jpg',
    'urlEndpoint' => 'https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id'
    
    'transformation' => [
        [
            'height' => '300',
            'width' => '400',
            'raw': "l-image,i-default-image.jpg,w-100,b-10_CDDC39,l-end"
        ]
    ]
));

Sample Result URL

https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/tr:h-300,w-400,l-image,i-default-image.jpg,w-100,b-10_CDDC39,l-end/default-image.jpg

Solid color blocks as overlays

You can add solid color blocks over a base video or image using an image layer (l-image).

For example:

$imageURL = $imageKit->url(array(
    'path' => '/img/sample-video.mp4',
    'urlEndpoint' => 'https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id'
    
    'transformation' => [
        [
            'height' => '300',
            'width' => '400',
            'raw': "l-image,i-ik_canvas,bg-FF0000,w-300,h-100,l-end"
        ]
    ]
));

Sample Result URL

https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/tr:h-300,w-400,l-image,i-ik_canvas,bg-FF0000,w-300,h-100,l-end/img/sample-video.mp4

6. Arithmetic expressions in transformations

ImageKit allows use of arithmetic expressions in certain dimension and position-related parameters, making media transformations more flexible and dynamic.

For example:

$imageURL = $imageKit->url(array(
    'path' => '/default-image.jpg',
    'urlEndpoint' => 'https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id'
    'transformation' => [
        [
            "height": "ih_div_2",
            "width": "iw_div_4",
            "border": "cw_mul_0.05_yellow"
        ]
    ]
));

Sample Result URL

https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/default-image.jpg?tr=w-iw_div_4,h-ih_div_2,b-cw_mul_0.05_yellow
``

### 7. Signed URL

For example, the signed URL expires in 300 seconds with the default URL endpoint and other query parameters.
For a detailed explanation of the signed URL, refer to this [documentation](https://docs.imagekit.io/features/security/signed-urls).

#### Example
```php  
$imageURL = $imageKit->url([
    "path" => "/default-image.jpg",
    "queryParameters" => 
    [
        "v" => "123"
    ],
    "transformation" => [
        [
            "height" => "300",
            "width" => "400"
        ]
    ],
    "signed" => true,
    "expireSeconds" => 300,
]);

Response

https://ik.imagekit.io/your_imagekit_id/tr:h-300,w-400/default-image.jpg?v=123&ik-t=1654183277&ik-s=f98618f264a9ccb3c017e7b7441e86d1bc9a7ebb

You can manage security settings from the dashboard to prevent unsigned URLs usage. In that case, if the URL doesn't have a signature ik-s parameter or the signature is invalid, ImageKit will return a forbidden error instead of an actual image.

List of supported transformations

The complete list of transformations supported and their usage in ImageKit can be found in the docs for images and videos. The SDK gives a name to each transformation parameter, making the code simpler, making the code simpler, and readable.

If a transformation is supported in ImageKit, but a name for it cannot be found in the table below, then use the transformation code from ImageKit docs as the name when using the url function.

If you want to generate transformations in your application and add them to the URL as it is, use the raw parameter.

Server-side File Upload

The SDK provides a simple interface using the $imageKit->uploadFile() method to upload files to the ImageKit Media Library.

Basic Usage

$uploadFile = $imageKit->uploadFile([
    'file' => 'your_file',              //  required, "binary","base64" or "file url"
    'fileName' => 'your_file_name.jpg', //  required
]);

    //         "price" => 599.99,
    // ]
]);

File Management

The SDK provides a simple interface for all the following Media APIs to manage your files.

1. List and Search Files

This API can list all the uploaded files and folders in your ImageKit.io media library.

Refer to the list and search file API for a better understanding of the request & response structure.

Example

$listFiles = $imageKit->listFiles();

Applying Filters

Filter out the files with an object specifying the parameters.

$listFiles = $imageKit->listFiles([
    "type" => "file",           // file, file-version or folder
    "sort" => "ASC_CREATED",    
    "path" => "/",              // folder path
    "fileType" => "all",        // all, image, non-image
    "limit" => 10,              // min:1, max:1000
    "skip" => 0,                // min:0
]);

Advance Search

In addition, you can fine-tune your query by specifying various filters by generating a query string in a Lucene-like syntax and providing this generated string as the value of the searchQuery.

$listFiles = $imageKit->listFiles([
    "searchQuery" => '(size < "1mb" AND width > 500) OR (tags IN ["summer-sale","banner"])',
]);

Detailed documentation can be found here for advance search queries.

2. Get File Details

    'includeFileVersions' => $includeFileVersions
]);

13. Move File API

This will move a file and all its versions from one folder to another.

If any file at the destination has the same name as the source file, then the source file and its versions will be appended to the destination file.

Refer to the move file API for a better understanding of the request & response structure.

Example

$sourceFilePath = '/sample-file.jpg';
$destinationPath = '/sample-folder/';

$moveFile = $imageKit->move([

    'destinationPath' => $destinationPath
]);

14. Rename File API

Using Rename File API, you can programmatically rename an already existing file in the media library. This operation would rename all versions of the file.

The old URLs will stop working. However, the file/file version URLs cached on CDN will continue to work unless a purge is requested.

Refer to the rename file API for a better understanding of the request & response structure.

Example

// Purge Cache would default to false

$filePath = '/sample-folder/sample-file.jpg';
$newFileName = 'sample-file2.jpg';
$renameFile = $imageKit->rename([
    'filePath' => $filePath,
    'newFileName' => $newFileName,
]);

When purgeCache is set to true, response will return purgeRequestId. This purgeRequestId can be used to get the purge request status.

$filePath = '/sample-folder/sample-file.jpg';
$newFileName = 'sample-file2.jpg';
$renameFile = $imageKit->rename([
    'filePath' => $filePath,
    'newFileName' => $newFileName,
],true);

15. Restore File Version API

This will restore the provided file version to a different version of the file. The newly restored version of the file will be returned in the response.

Refer to the restore file version API for a better understanding of the request & response structure.

Example

$fileId = 'fileId';
$versionId = 'versionId';
$restoreFileVersion = $imageKit->restoreFileVersion([
    'fileId' => $fileId,

$copyFolder = $imageKit->copyFolder([
    'sourceFolderPath' => $sourceFolderPath,
    'destinationPath' => $destinationPath,
    'includeFileVersions' => $includeFileVersions
]);

19. Move Folder API

This will move one folder into another. The selected folder, its nested folders, files, and their versions are moved in this operation.

If any file at the destination has the same name as the source file, then the source file and its versions will be appended to the destination file version history.

Refer to the move folder API for a better understanding of the request & response structure.

Example

$sourceFolderPath = '/sample-folder/';
$destinationPath = '/destination-folder/';
$moveFolder = $imageKit->moveFolder([
    'sourceFolderPath' => $sourceFolderPath,
    'destinationPath' => $destinationPath
]);

Utility functions

We have included the following commonly used utility functions in this SDK.

Authentication parameter generation

If you want to implement client-side file upload, you will need a token, expiry timestamp, and a valid signature for that upload. The SDK provides a simple method you can use in your code to generate these authentication parameters.

Note: The Private API Key should never be exposed in any client-side code. You must always generate these authentication parameters on the server-side

$imageKit->getAuthenticationParameters($token = "", $expire = 0);  

Returns

{
    "token": "5d1c4a22-54f2-40bb-9e8c-99daaeeb7307",
    "expire": 1654207193,
    "signature": "a03a88b814570a3d92919c16a1b8bd4491f053c3"
}

Both the token and expire parameters are optional. If not specified, the SDK internally generates a random token and a valid expiry timestamp. The value of the token and expire used to create the signature is always returned in the response, whether they are provided in input or not.

Distance calculation between two pHash values

Perceptual hashing allows you to construct a hash value that uniquely identifies an input image based on the contents of an image. ImageKit.io metadata API returns the pHash value of an image in the response. You can use this value to find a duplicate (or similar) image by calculating the distance between the pHash value of the two images.

This SDK exposes pHashDistance function to calculate the distance between two pHash values. It accepts two pHash hexadecimal strings and returns a numeric value indicative of the level of difference between the two images.

 $imageKit->pHashDistance($firstHash ,$secondHash);  

Distance calculation examples

$imageKit->pHashDistance('f06830ca9f1e3e90', 'f06830ca9f1e3e90');  
// output: 0 (same image)  
  
$imageKit->pHashDistance('2d5ad3936d2e015b', '2d6ed293db36a4fb');  
// output: 17 (similar images)  
  
$imageKit->pHashDistance('a4a65595ac94518b', '7838873e791f8400');  
// output: 37 (dissimilar images)
