The primary problem of a developer is
How to send image from the front end to the back end server which is running on PHP.
So the process goes like this
1> Create a form in HTML to allow user to add an image
<form action ="imageLoader.php" method="post" encType ="multipart/form-data"> <input type ="file" name="myImage" /> <input type="submit" name="submit" /> </form>
The requirement is to display the file in another script.
In PHP script imageLoader.php
$_FILES will provide the file name which can be copied to another location and then read using file_get_contents()
$content = file_get_contents("myfile.png"); $base64String = base64_encode($content);
Based on the type type add
Then the base64String can be re-sent to the server using a script like this
header('Content-Type: application/json'); echo json_encode($base64String); die();
Don’t forget to include die(); otherwise anything after the script will be sent as well
