I'm having an issue with uploading image in the backend of a silverstripe installation running on MAMP. This looks like an error creating the thumbnail image that is displayed when you pick an image in an ImageField.

As Im running on MAMP, gd should be up and running See Here.

Is this an error with GD? Or am I setting something up wrong on my page the PortfolioItem.php file is available here

Below is the error message that I get. There is an image attached to this post showing where the error occurs.

[Warning] imagecreatefrompng() [function.imagecreatefrompng]: gd-png: fatal libpng error: IDAT: CRC error
GET /portfoliotheme/images/iframe/PortfolioItem/12/PortfolioThumbnail

Line 23 in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/portfoliotheme/sapphire/filesystem/GD.php

14 // If we're working with image resampling, things could take a while. Bump up the time-limit
15 increase_time_limit_to(300);
17 if($filename) {
18 // We use getimagesize instead of extension checking, because sometimes extensions are wrong.
19 list($width, $height, $type, $attr) = getimagesize($filename);
20 switch($type) {
21 case 1: if(function_exists('imagecreatefromgif')) $this->setGD(imagecreatefromgif($filename)); break;
22 case 2: if(function_exists('imagecreatefromjpeg')) $this->setGD(imagecreatefromjpeg($filename)); break;
23 case 3: if(function_exists('imagecreatefrompng')) $this->setGD(imagecreatefrompng($filename)); break;
24 }
25 }
27 $this->quality = self::$default_quality;
28 parent::__construct();

I suggest you try to narrow the problem down by trying some image manipulation directly in PHP code, first using the Image class then with the GD library directly. Try to come up with the smallest amount of stuff (data, code, everything) involved in something that fails.

Check your permission of assets folder.

This fixed my similar issue, although Iv had lots of other permission trouble with WAMP/XAMP over permissions and couldn't direct you where to change it in MAMP.

Presuming your running a localhost version; I think there is a feature in 2.4 to 'detect new files' maybe you could get round uploading files by using that?
