``` I made a function that calculates the average color of a given image resource and returns it in "#rrggbb" format (hex):function average(\$img) {    \$w = imagesx(\$img);    \$h = imagesy(\$img);    \$r = \$g = \$b = 0;    for(\$y = 0; \$y < \$h; \$y++) {        for(\$x = 0; \$x < \$w; \$x++) {            \$rgb = imagecolorat(\$img, \$x, \$y);            \$r += \$rgb >> 16;            \$g += \$rgb >> 8 & 255;            \$b += \$rgb & 255;        }    }    \$pxls = \$w * \$h;    \$r = dechex(round(\$r / \$pxls));    \$g = dechex(round(\$g / \$pxls));    \$b = dechex(round(\$b / \$pxls));    if(strlen(\$r) < 2) {        \$r = 0 . \$r;    }    if(strlen(\$g) < 2) {        \$g = 0 . \$g;    }    if(strlen(\$b) < 2) {        \$b = 0 . \$b;    }    return "#" . \$r . \$g . \$b;}Although, I've noticed that you can also get a fairly good average color generating a 1px by 1px copy with imagecopyresampled (the pixel generated is colored with the average color). ```

``` I've found this function very useful when wanting to manipulate an existing image. An example would be to simply flip an image (source code here: http://www.coderprofile.com/source-code/372/ )The principle i use a lot is to scan through an image pixel by pixel performing some kind of action on that pixel... and then saving the newly created pixel on to a new canvas ready to display to the browser.The only problem i find is speed... so some kind of caching mechanism and dimensions limitation on images that are processed is recommended for high traffic use.Kind regards,Scott ```

``` As creamdog noted before, the alpha channel IS available from this function! (The manual should probably be updated to include this!)\$rgba = imagecolorat(\$im,\$x,\$y);\$alpha = (\$rgba & 0x7F000000) >> 24;\$alpha will then contain the TRANSPARENCY (NOT OPACITY) level. So 127, the max, would be completely transparent, and 0 would be completely opaque.Using this information, it is possible to write a dithering png-to-gif function like the completely working simple one below:<?php\$im = imagecreatefrompng(\$pngRel);        \$transparentColor = imagecolorallocate(\$im, 0xfe, 0x3, 0xf4 );        \$height = imagesy(\$im);        \$width = imagesx(\$im);        for(\$x = 0; \$x < \$width; \$x++){            for(\$y = 0; \$y < \$height; \$y++) {                \$alpha = (imagecolorat(\$im,\$x,\$y) & 0x7F000000) >> 24;                //DITHER!                if (\$alpha > 3 && (                        \$alpha >=127-3 ||                         (rand(0,127))>=(127-\$alpha)                    )){                    imagesetpixel(\$im,\$x,\$y,\$transparentColor);                }            }        }        imagecolortransparent(\$im, \$transparentColor);        imagegif(\$im, \$gifRel);//save        header("Content-type: image/gif");        readfile(\$gifRel); //pass thru to browser?> ```

``` If you have a truecolor image and absolutely need to get the actual color of a pixel, it seems like you could create a 16x16 indexed color image from a part of the True Color image containing the pixel(s) in question. Then you should be able to guarantee that the indexed sample has the indentical colors to the True Color image. you can then use this function to get the color index of a pixel in the sample. Obviously, this would be an intensive way to get pixel colors, especially for a large image, but as far as I can tell, it's one of the very few ways to do it right now. ```

``` If an image is filled with a solid color (rgb 0,0,0) the average color will be 0,0,0, and the histogram will have the maximum values at r[0], g[0], and b[0]. Since we remove those values with the tolerance (+- 16), we are only left with colors outside of average. If the removed colors represent more than 90% of the image (we remove 6.25-12.5% of the histogram based on the average color), then we asume the image is blank. This detects solid filled images of any color, and with images of very little color variance (blank wall, blue sky with no clouds, nearly faded images, very low contrast and low color range images).

``` I believe GD has an issue with transparent mattes and alpha blending. It seems GD thinks that some images have a black matte transparency (meaning that the image is built on a black matte instead of transparent).And while "alan hogan dot com slash contact" solution does deal with this, the results seem to be... glitchy. you get different results each time you do it, and they are not always the best.So I made a different solution that, while it looks better on a white background and is consistent, still sort of mangles the image just a bit by merging all blended pixels with the transparent color.// Load image\$img = imagecreatefrompng('my_broken_png.png');// Make matte canvas\$matte = imagecreatetruecolor(16,16);\$trans_color = imagecolorallocatealpha(\$matte,254,254,254,0);imagefill(\$matte, 0,0,\$trans_color);// Put the old image on the matteimagecopy(\$matte,\$img,0,0,0,0,16,16);// Turn the matte color into full alpha (blended pixels will not be affected)imagecolortransparent(\$matte,\$trans_color);// Display imageheader('Content-Type: image/gif');   imagegif(\$matte); ```

``` In GD 2.x there is support for true color images complete with an alpha channel. GD 2.x has a 7-bit (0-127) alpha channel.While most people are used to an 8-bit (0-255) alpha channel, it is actually quite handy that GD's is 7-bit (0-127). Each pixel is represented by a 32-bit signed integer, with the four 8-bit bytes arranged like this: High Byte <--> Low Byte{Alpha Channel} {Red} {Green} {Blue}For a signed integer, the leftmost bit, or the highest bit, is used to indicate whether the value is negative, thus leaving only 31 bits of actual information. PHP's default integer value is a signed long into which we can store a single GD palette entry. Whether that integer is positive or negative tells us whether antialiasing is enabled for that palette entry. ```

``` imagecolorat() works differently for png's with true color and for paletted png's - for true color it returns value of color, for paletted it returns index number and you have to use  imagecolorsforindex() to get rgb color value. ```
