Generate PDF from base64 String PHP

I'm trying to create a .pdf file with a base64 string from an image, and I can create it correctly, but when I try to open the file, the program sends a message that tells the file is corrupt or something like that..

I got this code:

define('UPLOAD_DIR', '../image/'); $img = $_POST['image']; $img = str_replace('data:image/png;base64,', '', $img); $img = str_replace(' ', '+', $img); $data = base64_decode($img); $uniqueNumber = uniqid(); $namefile = $uniqueNumber.'.png'; $file = UPLOAD_DIR . $namefile; $success = file_put_contents($file, $data); $namefile = $uniqueNumber.'.pdf'; $file = UPLOAD_DIR . $namefile; $success = file_put_contents($file, $data);

I can open the .png file correctly so, i think it's not problem from the base64 decoded string. Thank you all!


I'm trying this code and getting the same issue.

$data = base64_decode ($img); //Write data back to pdf file $pdf = fopen ('test.pdf','w'); fwrite ($pdf,$data); //close output file fclose ($pdf); echo 'Done';

Is that becouse i'm saving an image with .pdf ? I think no, because if i'm doing fopen with .pdf should be with that format.



I followed these steps and i can get that, thank you all!

Check out DOMPDF:

You can definitely use DOMPDF to create a PDF with an image tag whose source is that Base64 string. and render that to PDF.


$img = $_POST['image'];
$html =
'<img src="'.$img.

$dompdf = new DOMPDF();
