Hello, I am using the advanced 6.5 version of the license and I have a problem that happens with some images. I use the addImage method with width = 288 and height = 216 but some images appear larger in the docx I generate.

This image: works well

This image: works bad.


I download images to a temporary path before using it.

$thumb = array('src' => "/var/tmp/image.jpg", 'imageAlign' => 'center', 'height' => 216, 'width' => 288);


Any idea what's going on?

Thank you.

The problem is that the images you are adding don't have the same dpi. So as you are not forcing a dpi, phpdocx uses the dpi from the image.

This image:

has 96 dpi. And this is a PNG image, not JPG; we recommend you to use extensions with the same mime types than images.

And this image:

has 72 dpi.

You can force the dpi value to get the exact image size, regardless the dpi of an image:

$image = array(
  'src' => 'image.jpg',
  'imageAlign' => 'center',
  'height' => 216,
  'width' => 288,
  'dpi' => 72,

Thank you very much for your quick response. I was struggling with this problem two weeks ago. I had already tried a lot of different things that did not work and I was lost. You really helped me. Thanks again.
