Phil Sturgeon has a new post to his site talking about how he added image upload and management support to an application with an easy integration of two packages (pulled in via Composer).
To get this extra functionality I added two packages to my composer.json. [...] The first is Upload by Josh Lockhart (who built Slim and started PHP The Right Way). It's currently very basic as it's not been alive long, but for the job I needed to do it worked perfect.
The second package is the ImageWorkshop that let him easily resize the uploaded images and add a watermark to the corner. He also points out that this method of pulling together packages, each with their own specializations, is the "early days of a PHP renaissance" in how people will work with the language.
