Laravel Image is an image manipulation package for Laravel 4 and 5 based on the PHP Imagine library. It is inspired by Croppa as it can use specially formatted urls to do the manipulations. It supports basic image manipulations such as resize, crop, rotation and flip. It also supports effects such as negative, grayscale, gamma, colorize and blur. You can also define custom filters for greater flexibility. The main difference between this package and other image manipulation libraries is that you can use parameters directly in the url to manipulate the image. A manipulated version of the image is then saved in the same path as the original image, creating a static version of the file and bypassing PHP for all future requests.
