Must be something similar in PHP, but I have this in a Perl

    my $images = Image::Magick->new;

    # Fetch image
    $images->Read( $file );
    my $image = $images->[0] || die 'no image';

    # Resize, strip, and set format
    $image->Resize( '100x100>' );
    $image->Set( magick => 'png' );

In this case I'm saving the image into the database via the $photo

    $photo->image( $i->ImageToBlob );

and save the meta data, too, for serving the image.

    $photo->$_( $i->Get( $_ ) ) for qw/ width height mime /;
    $photo->last_modified( time );
