destroy — Free up memory
public Intervention\Image\Image destroy()
Frees memory associated with the current image instance before the PHP script ends. Normally resources are destroyed automatically after the script is finished.
Of course, the image instance is no longer usable after the method has been called.
// create an image $img = Image::make('public/foo.jpg'); // perform some modifications and destroy resource $img->resize(320, 240); $img->save('public/small.jpg'); $img->destroy();
