All too often when a user uploads an image the image is black. This was happening previous to my current server. Both allow .gif images and the problem seems to occur only when some .jpg images are uploaded. However this problem occurs relatively often.
This project is a repost as the first programmer wanted to convert to Imagemagick, and the next programmer kept providing "fixes" that would still produce the black images.
I have researched this problem slightly and have a sample .jpg image that thumbnails fine everywhere except through my script. Keep in mind again that several programmers have attempted to fix the problem through code variations, etc. I read somewhere that this problem occurrs on CMYK images. If that is the case, can there be a fix in place? As I've stated before in other projects, this problem doesn't happen if I upload these images to other thumbnailing scripts.
