Extract image source from img tag

To extract the image source from this:

<p><img alt="" src="/images/logo.jpg" style="width: 300px; height: 97px;" /></p>

Use preg_match to extract the image src:

$img = stripslashes($source);
$str = preg_replace('#<p>.+?src=[\'"]([^\'"]+)[\'"].+</p>#i', "$1", $img);
$source = trim($str);

For the past 12 years, I’ve been developing applications for the web using mostly PHP. I do this for a living and love what I do as every day there is something new and exciting to learn.

In my spare time, the web development community is a big part of my life. Whether managing online programming groups and blogs or attending a conference, I find keeping involved helps me stay up to date. This is also my chance to give back to the community that helped me get started, a place I am proud to be apart of.

Besides programming I love spending time with friends and family and can often be found together going out catching the latest movie, staying in playing games on the sofa or planning a trip to someplace I’ve never been before.
