``` As we all know, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides of a right triangle (a2 + b2 = c2).With that in mind I created a quick way to reduce images to a maximum area without messing up width/height constraints.<?phplist(\$width_orig, \$height_orig) = getimagesize(\$img);\$max_a = 500000; // maximum area in pixels\$width = \$width_orig;\$height = \$height_orig;\$area = \$width * \$height;if (\$area > \$max_a) {     \$mult = sqrt(\$max_a) / sqrt(\$height * \$width);    \$width *= \$mult;    \$height *= \$mult;}?> ```
