Im using CF MX7 for my website. And since this version doesn't support cfimage tag, I looked for other helpful CF commands to resize photos. Then I found this imagecfc object. It somehow helped but not for long. Since it constantly giving out of memory errors to users, I decided to abandon it. Now here's the problem. Some users (not all) uploading photos in my site were still able to resize photos although I have removed that CF component to my code. How did that happen?
Please help. And do you have any suggestion to how to resize photos in MX7?
Sounds like you have multiple things going on here.
1. How much memory have you allocated to the ColdFusion JVM? All these image functions must be done in memory, so if you have really big images and not much memory, you are bound to get memory errors.
2. Do you control how big the size of the image allowed to uploaded and manipulated?
3. Back in the day, I had good luck with Jukka Manner's CFX_Image (now http://www.kolumbus.fi/jukka.manner/cfx_openimage/index.htm )
