Creates a resized image with the aspect ratio maintained.

imageScaleTofit(name, fitWidth, fitHeight [, interpolation] [, blurFactor]) → returns void

Member Function Syntax

someImage.scaleTofit(fitWidth, fitHeight [, interpolation] [, blurFactor])

imageScaleTofit Argument Reference


The ColdFusion image on which this operation is performed.


The width of the bounding box in pixels. You can specify an integer, or an empty string ('') if the fitHeight is specified.


The height of the bounding box in pixels. You can specify an integer, or an empty string ('') if the fitWidth is specified.


The interpolation method for resampling. You can specify a specific interpolation algorithm by name (for example, hamming), by image quality (for example, mediumQuality), or by performance (for example, highestPerformance). Values:
  • highestQuality (default)
  • highQuality
  • mediumQuality
  • highestPerformance
  • highPerformance
  • mediumPerformance
  • nearest
  • bilinear
  • bicubic
  • bessel
  • blackman
  • hamming
  • hanning
  • hermite
  • lanczos
  • mitchell
  • quadratic


The blur factor used for resampling. The higher the blur factor, the more blurred the image (also, the longer it takes to resize the image). Values:
  • 1-10
