In Drupal 6 there is a parameter $destination for the function 'image_scale_and_crop()' . The parameter is not available in D7. I have the following code block.

image_scale_and_crop($image, 100, 70);

This code is executed an the thumbnail is created in a path if I examine the file directory.

My question is, how I can determine the path where the cropped file is created in order to save it to db.


Maybe it's better to use an image style and use theme_image_style($variables)

  • I agree. See also drupal.stackexchange.com/q/17179/226. – marcvangend Dec 13 '11 at 10:07
  • I agree with you that it is possible to create an image style and use it. But in my case, I have to use the re-sizing, explicitly from the image_style because image size will be taken from database according to user assigned values. – Muneer Dec 13 '11 at 12:28
