You can install the package through Composer.

composer require spatie/laravel-glide

In Laravel 5.5 the service provider and facade will automatically get registered. In older versions of the framework just add the service provider and facade in config/app.php file:

'providers' => [


'aliases' => [
    'GlideImage' => Spatie\Glide\GlideImageFacade::class,

You can publish the config file of the package using artisan.

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Spatie\Glide\GlideServiceProvider"

The config file looks like this:


return [

     * The driver that will be used to create images. Can be set to gd or imagick.
    'driver' => 'gd',


Here's a quick example that shows how an image can be modified:

	->modify(['w'=> 50, 'filt'=>'greyscale'])

Take a look at Glide's image API to see which parameters you can pass to the modify-method.


You can run the tests with:

composer test
