Photoshop Project Source Code

Photoshop Project Source Code: Did you know that you can resize image dimensions (width & height) and compress their size by reducing the quality on the front end using vanilla JavaScript? If your answer is no then this blog is written for you.

Today, in this blog, you’ll learn How to Resize and Compress Images in HTML CSS & JavaScript from scratch.

I believe the codes and logic behind resizing images will not be complicated to understand if you already have basic knowledge of JavaScript.

In my Image Resizer & Compressor tool, users can upload an image and resize its width & height or reduce its size. If they checked the “Lock aspect ratio”, the aspect ratio for an image will be calculated automatically and filled in the field as they start changing width or height.

If the “Reduce quality” is checked, the image quality will be reduced by 40%. And, last users can download their resized images by clicking on the “Download Image” button. Remember downloading images is also done with vanilla JavaScript.

To create an Image Resizer and Compressor using HTML CSS & JavaScript, follow the given steps line by line:

  1. Create a folder. You can put any name of this folder and create the below-mentioned files inside this folder.
  2. Create an index.html file. The file name must be index and its extension .html
  3. Create a style.css file. The file name must be style and its extension .css
  4. Create a script.js file. The file name must be script and its extension .js

First, paste the following codes into your index.html file.
