When it comes to image handling (from multiple things like crop, sizing,...). You won't use normal
GD of PHP, it sucks.
You will use a library instead, and ImageMagick is quite awesome in terms of that.
From PHP, ImageMagick also offers a native extension for us to install. Which I'm about to show you below!!
pecl for the installation.
If you haven't installed this, run it:
brew install pkg-config zlib
Additionally, you might need to do this as well, in order to make the installation go smoothly.
ln -s /opt/homebrew/Cellar/pcre2/10.39/include/pcre2.h /opt/homebrew/Cellar/php/8.1.0_1/include/php/ext/pcre/pcre2.h
brew install imagemagick pect install imgmagick
If you see this "Extension imagick enabled in php.ini" after the command. Then congrats!
