To get any root of a number your can use the pow() function:

pow(8, 1/3)

which gives you the third root of eight.

As we all know, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides of a right triangle (a2 + b2 = c2).

With that in mind I created a quick way to reduce images to a maximum area without messing up width/height constraints.

list($width_orig, $height_orig) = getimagesize($img);

$max_a = 500000; // maximum area in pixels

$width = $width_orig;
$height = $height_orig;

$area = $width * $height;
if (
$area > $max_a) {
$mult = sqrt($max_a) / sqrt($height * $width);
$width *= $mult;
$height *= $mult;
