Check if Image exists in folder - El Forum - 07-10-2007

I need to display several images in a page. Some thumbnails images may not exist so I need to display an alternate image instead. Basically, i need to check if an image exists and display an alternative if it does not. Any comments would help.

Code:
if(!file_exists($file)){
   // display alternative
}else{
   // display file
}

Hope this helps - there may be a CI alternative - but what's the point when there's a native php function.
