New Major Versions of Spatie Image and Laravel Media Library Released

Spatie released the next major version (v3) of their popular spatie/image package, which also powers their laravel-medialibrary package. If you're looking for an image maniuplation library without any dependencies, you should check out this version.

The latest version of the image package is a major overhaul of the internals of the library, yet the public API hasn't changed much. This version doesn't depend on the PHP intervention package; the only dependencies are the Imagick or GD extensions.

Here's an example of the fluent API you can use to manipulate and image and save an updated version:


If you're not familiar with Spatie's Image package, it provides a fluent API for the following image manipulations:

  • Resizing images
  • Image optimization
  • Image adjustments
  • Image canvas manipulation
  • Image effects (blur, grayscale, pixelate, etc.)
  • Image watermarks
  • And more...

Take a look at this example of how you can easily optimize an image with this package:


That's a simple example, but you can customize the optimization process with more advanced options:

The easiest way to get started with this package is to read the documentation. You can also use this package in your Laravel applications via the popular laravel-medialibrary.
