Example

Example 1

<!--- This example shows how to copy a rectangular area of an image to a new image. ---> 
<!--- Create a ColdFusion image from an existing JPEG file. ---> 
<cfimage source="../cfdocs/images/artgallery/lori05.jpg" name="myImage"> 
<!--- Copy the rectangular area specified by the coordinates (25,25,50,50) in the image to the rectangle beginning at (75,75), and return this copied rectangle as a new ColdFusion image. ---> 
<cfset dupArea = ImageCopy(myImage,25,25,50,50,75,75)> 
<!--- Write the result to a PNG file. ---> 
<cfimage source=#myImage# action="write" destination="test_myImage.png" overwrite="yes"> 
<!--- Display the source image and the new image. ---> 
<img src="../cfdocs/images/artgallery/lori05.jpg"> 
<img src="test_myImage.png">

Example 2

<!--- This example shows how to copy a rectangular area from one image and paste it over another image. ---> 
<!--- Create a ColdFusion image named "myImage1" from an existing JPEG file.---> 
<cfimage source="../cfdocs/images/artgallery/lori05.jpg" name="myImage1"> 
<!--- Create the ColdFusion image "myImage2" from a different JPEG file. 
---> 
<cfimage source="../cfdocs/images/artgallery/maxwell01.jpg" name="myImage2"> 
<!--- Copy a rectangular region of "myImage1" as a new image. ---> 
<cfset resImage = ImageCopy(myImage1,1,1,55,55)> 
<!--- Paste the rectangular area on the second image. ---> 
<cfset ImagePaste(myImage2,resImage,50,75)> 
<!--- Write the second ColdFusion image to a file. ---> 
<cfimage action="write" source="#myImage2#" destination="test_myImage.jpg" overwrite="yes"> 
<!--- Display the two source files and the new file. ---> 
<img src="../cfdocs/images/artgallery/lori05.jpg"/> 
<img src="../cfdocs/images/artgallery/maxwell01.jpg"/>
