Add text to an image with PHP

/ By Arjun / Published on January 20, 2016

In this post I would like to show how you can add text to an image with PHP, GD Library. In this post, we will use an existing image and we will write text on it.The imagettftext() function will be used to write the text to the image. Along with the imagettftext() function , based on your image type you need to choose one of the following functions imagecreatefromgif(), imagecreatefromjpeg() and imagecreatefrompng(). We use these functions to crate a new image from the provided file or url.
