Agile Uploader – Resize Images Before Uploading

Posted · Category: License Free, Upload

Save bandwidth and take the hassle out of getting images down to size for web use. Agile Uploader will let you resize images before uploading to your server using Flash. This is 100% free to use as you see fit (commercially or non-commercially).

Agile Uploader v2 has now got the ability to attach and upload multiple files of any type. They are planning to expand this project further by adding croping and rotation functions in the future as well.

    Pretty cool component. I’ve just tested this thing but it isn’t suitable for uploading large files (which i was actually looking for). Does someone have a good alternative which can upload large files and has a good status indicator?

    Well this was sweet, I just have to make time to check this one out! Looks just like the thing I need for users uploading large images which are downsized anyway when recieved on the server.

    Great find!

    haha, beware of this script. i just injected a php file in the uploader and i could take root access to the box if i wanted :P using this will make your website’s vulnerables to attacks.

    you can see the php file I uploaded here:

    ( none malicious, only an alert to the developer )

    > Is there a simple way to protect…

    Yes, as always when users are to upload their own stuff you should

    a) Limit the uploader by filetype
    b) disable execution of certain filetypes.

    In scenario b) you are looking for a .htaccess fix like this:

    RemoveHandler .php .php3 .php4 .shtml .cgi .pl

    This way a php file will be treated as a TXT file, and the above “hack” would not work. It’s more of a sloppy setup by the scripts author, accepting php files in the first place without removing their handler.
