color

A color identifier created with imagecolorallocate().

Valori restituiti

Restituisce TRUE in caso di successo, FALSE in caso di fallimento.

Esempi

Example #1 imagestring() example

<?php
// Create a 100*30 image
$im imagecreate(10030);

// White background and blue text
$bg imagecolorallocate($im255255255);
$textcolor imagecolorallocate($im00255);

// Write the string at the top left
imagestring($im500'Hello world!'$textcolor);

// Output the image
header('Content-type: image/png');

imagepng($im);
imagedestroy($im);

Some fun with imagestring:

This function is a product of too much time..
It opens an image and create a new image with one letter instead of a pixel.

<?php
error_reporting
(E_ALL);
/**
 * generates a image with chars instead of pixels
 *
 * @param string $url Filepath or url
 * @param string $chars The chars which should replace the pixels
 * @param int $shrpns Sharpness (2 = every second pixel, 1 = every pixel ... )
 * @param int $size
 * @param int $weight font-weight/size
 * @return sesource

function pixelfuck($url, $chars='ewk34543§G§$§$Tg34g4g', $shrpns=1, $size=4,$weight=2)
{
    list(
$w, $h, $type) = getimagesize($url);
   
$resource = imagecreatefromstring(file_get_contents($url));
   
$img = imagecreatetruecolor($w*$size,$h*$size);

   
$cc = strlen($chars);
    for(
$y=0;$y <$h;$y+=$shrpns)
        for(
$x=0;$x <$w;$x+=$shrpns)
           
imagestring($img,$weight,$x*$size,$y*$size, $chars{@++$p%$cc}, imagecolorat($resource, $x, $y));
    return
$img;
}

$url = 'http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/be/Manga_Icon.png';
$text = 'I-dont-like-manga-...-Why-do-they-have-such-big-eyes? Strange-...-WHAT-WANT-YOU-DO?';

Header('Content-Type: image/png');
imagepng(pixelfuck($url, $text, 1, 6));
?>

Have fun  :)

There is an error in "tjpoe at cableaz dot com" 's function ImageStringWrap. Instead of

    else
           $string = $text;

there should be

     else
           $string = array($text);

for function to work for strings with only one word. Otherwise it works like a charm, thanks.

If you find that you are getting two characters on the end of your imageString that look like a Y and an upside down L then they're probably representations of CR/LF.  Try trim()ing the string before outputting it.  (I was sooo sure this was a bug <g>)

Here is a small bit I made for writing to a image from right to left when you are limited to imagestring()

<?php

        $pageview_letters
= preg_split('//', $string, -1 ); // Form are original array of letters.
       
$minus = 6; // The letter spacing in pixels
       
$first = true; // Whether or not we have started the string
       
$x = 375; // X Location of imagestring
       
$y = 23; // Y Location of imagestring
       
$letters = array(); // Initiate the array o letters.

       
foreach ( $pageview_letters as $letter ) {
       
           
$letters[] = $letter;
           
        }
       
       
$letters = array_reverse( $letters );
       
        foreach (
$letters as $letter ) {
       
            if (
$first ) {
           
               
imagestring( $image, 2, $x, $y, $letter, $light_blue );
               
$first = false;
               
            } else {
               
               
$x = ( $x - $minus );
               
imagestring( $image, 2, $x, $y, $letter, $light_blue );
               
            }
       
        }

Same function as above but it can display multi-line strings.
<?php
function sendimagetext($text) {
 
// Set font size
 
$font_size = 4;

 
$ts=explode("\n",$text);
 
$width=0;
  foreach (
$ts as $k=>$string) { //compute width
   
$width=max($width,strlen($string));
  }

 
// Create image width dependant on width of the string
 
$width  = imagefontwidth($font_size)*$width;
 
// Set height to that of the font
 
$height = imagefontheight($font_size)*count($ts);
 
$el=imagefontheight($font_size);
 
$em=imagefontwidth($font_size);
 
// Create the image pallette
 
$img = imagecreatetruecolor($width,$height);
 
// Dark red background
 
$bg = imagecolorallocate($img, 0xAA, 0x00, 0x00);
 
imagefilledrectangle($img, 0, 0,$width ,$height , $bg);
 
// White font color
 
$color = imagecolorallocate($img, 255, 255, 255);

  foreach (
$ts as $k=>$string) {
   
// Length of the string
   
$len = strlen($string);
   
// Y-coordinate of character, X changes, Y is static
   
$ypos = 0;
   
// Loop through the string
   
for($i=0;$i<$len;$i++){
     
// Position of the character horizontally

I created an alternative using the function imagechar to create a string of an image.  The below function below was used to create an image the same height and width of the text string.  It is used on my website to mask users email addresses.

<?PHP

// Set your string somehow
$string = 'your@example.com';

// Set font size
$font_size = 4;

// Create image width dependant on width of the string
$width  = imagefontwidth($font_size)*strlen($string);
// Set height to that of the font
$height = imagefontheight($font_size);
// Create the image pallette
$img = imagecreate($width,$height);
// Grey background
$bg    = imagecolorallocate($img, 25, 25, 25);
// White font color
$color = imagecolorallocate($img, 255, 255, 255);
// Length of the string
$len = strlen($string);
// Y-coordinate of character, X changes, Y is static
$ypos = 0;
// Loop through the string
for($i=0;$i<$len;$i++){
   
// Position of the character horizontally
   
$xpos = $i * imagefontwidth($font_size);
   
// Draw character
   
imagechar($img, $font_size, $xpos, $ypos, $string, $color);
   
// Remove character from string
   
$string = substr($string, 1);   
   
}
// Return the image
header("Content-Type: image/gif");
imagegif($img);
// Remove image
imagedestroy($img);

this is a function that is based on imagestring but it produces text in the center of an image i hope it helps :D

<?php
function ImageStringCenter($image_resource, $font_size, $line_number, $total_lines, $text, $color ) {

   
$center_x = ceil( ( imagesx($image_resource) - ( ImageFontWidth($font_size) * strlen($text) ) ) / 2 );

   
$center_y = ceil( ( ( imagesy($image_resource) - ( ImageFontHeight($font_size) * $total_lines ) ) / 2)  + ( ($line_number-1) * ImageFontHeight($font_size) ) );

ImageString($image_resource, $font_size, $center_x, $center_y, $text, $color );

}

Simple script to convert a string (such as an email addresses) to a transparent image.

Usage:
<img src="stringtoimg.php?string=<?= urlencode(base64_encode($email)) ?>">

From a spambot's point of view, they see:
<img src="stringtoimg.php?string=ZpbXZG92ZXJsb3JkQGdtYWlsLmNvbQ%3D%3D">

Optional parameters:
    font_size: 1 to 5, with the default at 3
    R/G/B: the font color, in hex.

Usage:
<img src="stringtoimg.php?string=<?= urlencode(base64_encode($email)) ?>&font_size=4&R=FF&G=FF&B=00">

<?php
/*
Filename: stringtoimg.php

Parameters:
        string: the string to print
        font_size (optional): the size of the font from 1-5
        R/G/B (optional): the RGB colors of the font in hex      
*/

header ("Content-type: image/png");

//Get string info
$font_size = isset($_GET['font_size']) ? $_GET['font_size'] : 3;
$string = urldecode(base64_decode($_GET['string']));

//Get the size of the string
$width = imagefontwidth($font_size) * strlen($string);
$height = imagefontheight($font_size);

//Create the image
$img = @imagecreatetruecolor($width, $height)
      or die(
"Cannot Initialize new GD image stream");

//Make it transparent
imagesavealpha($img, true);
$trans_colour = imagecolorallocatealpha($img, 0, 0, 0, 127);
imagefill($img, 0, 0, $trans_colour);

//Get the text color
$text_color = isset($_GET['R'], $_GET['G'], $_GET['B']) ?
       
imagecolorallocate($img, hexdec($_GET['R']), hexdec($_GET['G']), hexdec($_GET['B'])) :

Its just an easy function to write an string in the middle of a picture.

<?php

function imageCenterString(&$img, $font, $text, $color)
{
    if(
$font < 0 || $font > 5){ $font = 0; }
   
$num = array(array(4.6, 6),
                 array(
4.6, 6),
                 array(
5.6, 12),
                 array(
6.5, 12),
                 array(
7.6, 16),
                 array(
8.5, 16));
   
$width = ceil(strlen($text) * $num[$font][0]);
   
$x     = imagesx($img) - $width - 8;
   
$y     = Imagesy($img) - ($num[$font][1] + 2);
   
imagestring($img, $font, $x/2, $y/2, $text, $color);
}

I like this better than "tjpoe at cableaz dot com"'s function for wrapping text to fit width (auto-adjusts height as needed) since it doesn't only do 1 word per line.

function make_wrapped_txt($txt, $color=000000, $space=4, $font=4, $w=300) {
  if (strlen($color) != 6) $color = 000000;
  $int = hexdec($color);
  $h = imagefontheight($font);
  $fw = imagefontwidth($font);
  $txt = explode("\n", wordwrap($txt, ($w / $fw), "\n"));
  $lines = count($txt);
  $im = imagecreate($w, (($h * $lines) + ($lines * $space)));
  $bg = imagecolorallocate($im, 255, 255, 255);
  $color = imagecolorallocate($im, 0xFF & ($int >> 0x10), 0xFF & ($int >> 0x8), 0xFF & $int);
  $y = 0;
  foreach ($txt as $text) {
    $x = (($w - ($fw * strlen($text))) / 2);
    imagestring($im, $font, $x, $y, $text, $color);
    $y += ($h + $space);
  }
  header('Content-type: image/jpeg');
  die(imagejpeg($im));

I've made a little modification of the (quite usefull) imagestringcutted function (when align=center, it doesn't work well for me if x1!=0) so juste replace the last line with :

<?php
  
[...]
   else
imagestring($img,$font,$x1+($x2-$x1)/ 2 - strlen($text) * $fontwidth / 2,$y,$text,$color);
}

The built-in fonts used to be in latin-2 (iso8859-2) encoding. For some time, they are in latin-1 (iso8859-1) encoding. There is no way to change the encoding at all. If you need to use any other encoding, you have to use TrueType fonts.

Here's a simple function for creating an aligned string which is cutted to match the space between $x1 and $x2
<?php
function imagestringcutted($img,$font,$y,$x1,$x2,$text,$color,$align="center") {
   
$fontwidth = imagefontwidth($font);
   
$fullwidth = strlen($text) * $fontwidth;
   
$maxwidth = $x2-$x1;
   
$targetwidth = $fullwidth-(4*$fontwidth);
    if(
$fullwidth > $maxwidth) {
        for(
$i = 0; $i < strlen($text) AND ((strlen($text)-($i-4))*$fontwidth) > $targetwidth ;$i++) { }
       
$text = substr($text,0,(strlen($text)-$i)-4)."...";
    }
    if(
$align == "left") imagestring($img,$font,$x1,$y,$text,$color);
    elseif(
$align == "right") imagestring($img,$font,$x2 - ((strlen($text) * $fontwidth)),$y,$text,$color);
    else
imagestring($img,$font,($x2-$x1)/ 2 - strlen($text) * $fontwidth / 2,$y,$text,$color);
}
?>
Usage:
<?php
imagestringcutted
($img,$font,$y,$x1,$x2,$text,$color,$align);
?>
Will create a string $text, which is cutted if it's too long to match between  $x1 and $2, on $img with font $font and color $color at height $y and with align to $align.
Hope it will help some people.
Sorry for my bad English.

hello, I noticed that if you put a rand(3,5) it will put random sizes of font to each character put on the image. this is very useful when programming captchas for anti-spam form verification.

If you are looking for a way to generate a "CAPTCHA" image for a form verification (to verify it is not a robot), have a look at this : http://blog.theoconcept.com/static/distortion/

It gives an animated image with the parameter string, with distortion, here is an example :

My version of the centered string, it decreases the font number (since I've noticed smaller numbers are smaller fonts) until 1 if the string won't fit. Then it will give up.

<?php
function imagestringcentered ($img,$font,$cy,$text,$color) {
 while (
strlen($text) * imagefontwidth($font) > imagesx($img)) {
  if (
$font > 1) { $font--; }
  else { break; }
 } 
 
imagestring($img,$font,imagesx($img) / 2 - strlen($text) * imagefontwidth($font) / 2,$cy,$text,$color);
}

If you are looking to center the text, use the following function; I'm not promising perfection...

function imagecenteredstring ( &$img, $font, $xMin, $xMax, $y, $str, $col ) {
    $textWidth = imagefontwidth( $font ) * strlen( $str );
    $xLoc = ( $xMax - $xMin - $textWidth ) / 2 + $xMin + $font;
    imagestring( $img, $font, $xLoc, $y, $str, $col );

Drawing a string as an image is a handy way to disguise an eMail address so spam sniffers can't get it as easily. The only catch to creating a dynamic image with your eMail in it is the eMail to be displayed must be passed via the query string to enable static HTML to use it. So, the eMail must be encrypted slightly in order to not defeat the purpose of not typing your eMail address outright. I wrote the following script to do so:

Save the following as email.php
<?php
   
if ($_GET['addr'] != "") {
       
$msg = $_GET['addr'];
       
$msg = preg_replace("/\[dot]/",".",$msg);
       
$msg = preg_replace("/\[at]/","@",$msg);
       
$final = "";
        for (
$i=0; $i<=strlen($msg); $i++) {
           
$final .= substr($msg, strlen($msg)-$i, 1);
        }
       
$msg = $final;

       
$char_width = 8;
       
$char_height = 17;
       
$padding = 3;
       
$width = $padding*2+strlen($msg)*$char_width;
       
$height = +$padding*2+$char_height;
       
$im = imagecreatetruecolor($width,$height);
       
imagealphablending($im, FALSE);
       
imagesavealpha($im, TRUE);
       
$bg = imagecolorallocatealpha($im, 255, 255, 0, 100);
       
$text = imagecolorallocatealpha($im, 0, 0, 0, 0);
       
imagefilledrectangle ($im, 0, 0, $width, $height, $bg); # Make transparent
       
imagestring($im, 4, $padding, $padding, $msg, $text);
    } else {
       
$im = imagecreatetruecolor(1,1);
       
imagealphablending($im, FALSE);
       
imagesavealpha($im, TRUE);
       
$bg = imagecolorallocatealpha($im, 255, 0, 0, 125);
       
imagefilledrectangle ($im, 0, 0, 1, 1, $bg); # Make transparent
   
}
   
header('Content-type: image/jpg');
   
imagepng($im);
   
imagedestroy($im);

?>

If the script is called without an eMail address, it outputs a 2x2 transparent image.

To call the script to generate the eMail "user@home.com", the HTML tag would be:

<img src="email.php?addr=moc[dot]emoh[at]resu">

To 'encrypt' the eMail address to pass to the script, write the address backwards and replace "." with "[dot]" and "@" with "[at]". It's not the most ironclad protection, but it thwarts most casual eMail sniffers.

A simple example:
To make one line of text fit in the image.

<?php
header
("Content-type: image/png");
$string = "spam@mvoncken.nl";                                             
$font   = 4;
$width  = ImageFontWidth($font) * strlen($string);
$height = ImageFontHeight($font);

$im = @imagecreate ($width,$height);
$background_color = imagecolorallocate ($im, 255, 255, 255); //white background
$text_color = imagecolorallocate ($im, 0, 0,0);//black text
imagestring ($im, $font, 0, 0$string, $text_color);
imagepng ($im);
?>

I use something like this for spamprotection of my visitors (pass userid as an url-parameter for this php)

When setting the font, any integer less than 1 defaults to 1, and any integer greater than 5 defaults to 5.

If you have any problem with CentralEurope's words, for example : ľščťžýáíéúäňôď, I am try this problem by iconv() function.

<?php
// create example image
$im = imagecreate(200, 20);
$bg = imagecolorallocate($im, 255, 255, 255);
$textcolor = imagecolorallocate($im, 0, 0, 255);
$text = "ľščťžýáíéúäňôď...";

//simple convert string
$string = iconv("Windows-1250", "Latin2", $text);

// write converted string at the top left
imagestring($im, 4, 0, 0, $string, $textcolor);

// output the image
header("Content-type: image/png");
imagepng($im);
?>

There is a small error in the function for horizontal and vertical centering by "jurgen dot vanoosterwijck at pandora dot be"

the line

 $cy = (imagesy($img)/2) - (imagefontwidth($font)/2);

should be

 $cy = (imagesy($img)/2) - (imagefontheight($font)/2);

i modified the centering functions and created this which centers each word on it's own line. You can adjust the spacing with the $valign var. currently no implimentation if text is too large for image. strings are tokenized by space, but can obviously be changed.

function ImageStringWrap($image, $font, $text, $color)
{
  $fontwidth = ImageFontWidth($font);
  $fontheight = ImageFontHeight($font);
  $words= str_word_count($text);
  if ($words > 1){
    $string=array(strtok($text,' '));
    for ($i = 1 ; $i <= $words ; $i++){
      $string=array_merge($string,array($i=>strtok(' ')));
    }
  }
  else
    $string=$text;
  $vspace=4;
  $y=((imagesy($image)-($fontheight*$words)-($words*$vspace))/2);
  foreach($string as $st){
    $x=((imagesx($image)-($fontwidth * strlen($st)))/2);
    ImageString($image,$font,$x,$y,$st,$color);
    $y+=($fontheight+$vspace);
  }
}
hope this is helpful

This code produces a png image of the text within the query. It autofits to the length of the string.
Usage: http://yoursite.com/text.php?abcdefg+hijk

Use + to produce a space in the image. The + can be excaped with a carat (^). Most other symbols work fine in the query string, like the ?.

<?php
header
("Content-type: image/png");
$string = $_ENV["QUERY_STRING"];
$md5 = md5($string); //just so we don't convert valid text into a +
$string = str_replace("^+", $md5, $string); //replaces ^+ with long, unnatural string
$string = str_replace("+", " ", $string); //replaces + with space
$string = str_replace($md5, "+", $string); //replaces the long, unnatural string with +
$width  = imagefontwidth($font) * strlen($string);
$height = imagefontheight($font);
$image = @imagecreate($width+2, $height+2);
$black = imagecolorallocate($image, 0, 0, 0); //background
$white = imagecolorallocate($image, 255, 255, 255);
imagestring($image, 2, 1, 1$string, $white);
imagepng($image);
imagedestroy($image);
?>

Based on the previous example, here's how to center a string both horizontally and vertically...

<?php
function imagestringcentered ($img,$font,$text,$color) {
 while (
strlen($text) * imagefontwidth($font) > imagesx($img)) {
  if (
$font > 1) { $font--; }
  else { break; }
 }
 
$cy = (imagesy($img)/2) - (imagefontwidth($font)/2);
 
imagestring($img,$font,imagesx($img) / 2 - strlen($text) * imagefontwidth($font) / 2,$cy,$text,$color);
}
?>

Width ImageString, the strings you draw are not automatically wrapped width the edge of the image. You may use this function to automatically wrap them:

function ImageStringWrap($image, $font, $x, $y, $text, $color, $maxwidth)
{
    $fontwidth = ImageFontWidth($font);
    $fontheight = ImageFontHeight($font);

    if ($maxwidth != NULL) {
        $maxcharsperline = floor($maxwidth / $fontwidth);
        $text = wordwrap($text, $maxcharsperline, "\n", 1);
      }

    $lines = explode("\n", $text);
    while (list($numl, $line) = each($lines)) {
        ImageString($image, $font, $x, $y, $line, $color);
        $y += $fontheight;
      }
}

So, in particular, if you want to wrap a text with the edge of the Image, you may do:
ImageStringWrap($img, $font, 0, $y, $text, $color, ImageSX($img) );

Creates a box of text. Has horizontal and vertical alignment, box arguments, and custom leading. I submitted this to the manual in 2003 actually, but it disappeared after a year or so (not sure why). Here it is again.

<?php
define
("ALIGN_LEFT", "left");
define("ALIGN_CENTER", "center");
define("ALIGN_RIGHT", "right");
define("VALIGN_TOP", "top");
define("VALIGN_MIDDLE", "middle");
define("VALIGN_BOTTOM", "bottom");

function
imagestringbox(&$image, $font, $left, $top, $right, $bottom, $align, $valign, $leading, $text, $color)
{
  
// Get size of box
  
$height = $bottom - $top;
  
$width = $right - $left;
 
  
// Break the text into lines, and into an array
  
$lines = wordwrap($text, floor($width / imagefontwidth($font)), "\n", true);
  
$lines = explode("\n", $lines);
 
  
// Other important numbers
  
$line_height = imagefontheight($font) + $leading;
  
$line_count = floor($height / $line_height);
  
$line_count = ($line_count > count($lines)) ? (count($lines)) : ($line_count);
 
  
// Loop through lines
  
for ($i = 0; $i < $line_count; $i++)
   {
      
// Vertical Align
      
switch($valign)
       {
           case
VALIGN_TOP: // Top
              
$y = $top + ($i * $line_height);
               break;
           case
VALIGN_MIDDLE: // Middle
              
$y = $top + (($height - ($line_count * $line_height)) / 2) + ($i * $line_height);
               break;
           case
VALIGN_BOTTOM: // Bottom
              
$y = ($top + $height) - ($line_count * $line_height) + ($i * $line_height);
               break;
           default:
               return
false;
       }
     
      
// Horizontal Align
      
$line_width = strlen($lines[$i]) * imagefontwidth($font);
       switch(
$align)
       {
           case
ALIGN_LEFT: // Left
              
$x = $left;
               break;
           case
ALIGN_CENTER: // Center
              
$x = $left + (($width - $line_width) / 2);
               break;
           case
ALIGN_RIGHT: // Right
              
$x = $left + ($width - $line_width);
               break;
           default:
               return
false;
       }
     
      
// Draw
      
imagestring($image, $font, $x, $y, $lines[$i], $color);
   }
 
   return
true;
}
?>
