What’s the most efficient way to resize large images in PHP?
People say that ImageMagick is much faster. At best just compare both libraries and measure that.
Prepare 1000 typical images. Write two scripts -- one for GD, one for ImageMagick. Run both of them a few times. Compare results (total execution time, CPU and I/O usage, result image quality). Something which the best everyone else, could not be the best for you. Also, in my opinion, ImageMagick has much better API interface
