Instalación

Para habilitar el soporte para GD configure PHP con --with-gd[=DIR] , donde DIR es el directorio de intalacion base de GD. Para usar la versión de la biblioteca GD integrada recomendada use la opción de configuración --with-gd . La biblioteca GD requiere libpng y libjpeg para compilarse.

En Windows, incluirá la DLL GD2 php_gd2.dll como una extensión en php.ini.

Mejore las capacidades de GD para manejar más formatos de imagen especificando la opción de configuración --with-XXXX en la línea de configuración de PHP.

Formatos de imagen soportados
Formato de Imagen Opción de Configuración
jpeg Para habilitar el suporte para jpeg añadir --with-jpeg-dir=DIR . Jpeg 6b, 7 o 8 están soportados.
png Para habilitar el soporte para png añada --with-png-dir=DIR . Nota, libpng requiere la biblioteca zlib, por lo tanto añada --with-zlib-dir[=DIR] a la línea de configuración.
xpm Para habilitar el soporte para xpm añada --with-xpm-dir=DIR . Si la configuración no es capaz de encontrar las bibliotecas requeridas, se puede añadir la ruta a las bibliotecas X11.
webp Para habilitar el soorte para webp añada --with-vpx-dir=DIR . Disponible a partri de PHP 5.5. A partir de PHP 7.0.0 se ha añadido --with-webp-dir=DIR , es decir, el soporte para libvpx se ha eliminado en favor de libwebp.

Nota: Cuando se compila PHP con libpng, se debe usar la misma versión que fue enlazada con la biblioteca GD.

Mejore las capacidades de GD para tratar con difenrentes fuentes especificando la opción de configuración --with-XXXX en la línea de configuración de PHP.

Bibliotecas de fuentes soportadas

It should be noted that it might be pretty easy to install gd without the need to recompile php, when using debian:

apt-get install php5-gd

Once you have installed php-gd, don't forget to restart the Apache server using the following command:

    sudo service httpd restart

I struggled needlessly for over an hour trying to figure out why it wouldn't work after I had installed the packages along with all their dependencies.  :-)

If you have already compiled PHP and want to recompile '--with-gd', don't forget to run 'make clean' first!

I also had to install the libgd package in addition to php5-gd:

sudo apt-get install libgd2-xpm-dev*

People having difficulties setting the --with-libdir option needs to set it like this :

--with-libdir=lib64

That option works fine. Doing --with-libdir=/usr/lib64 doesn't work because the configure script prepends the --prefix option before the --with-libdir option. So, doing --with-libdir=/usr/lib64 makes the configure script to look for libs in /usr/usr/lib64, which is wrong of course, and not in /usr/lib64.

If you are using PHPBREW , the extension is called gd.
So you do.
```
phpbrew ext install gd
```

It will compile the extension to the core.

I was running PHP on a SUSE box on amazon EC2.
to get gd to work all I had to do was to run:
> yast -i php5_gd

and when that completed I just restarted apache. voila!

On Ubuntu I was missing the libpng-dev, libjpeg-dev (and in my case) libwebp-dev libraries, all gettable with apt-get.

Also once those libraries are installed, including --with-png-dir --with-jpeg-dir --with-webp-dir, without any values (i.e. =/dir) appeared to be valid ... though admittedly I didn't try without (in case the configure script autodetected them).
