I've been trying to figure out how to make dynamic images work but I can't figure it out. Does anyone know how to make it work?

make sure you use GD not imagemagick, as imagemagick is not supported on windows os's.

the easiest way to use dynamic images in my opinion is to use a class. it is much easier to use an already written class and saves tons of development time versus doing it yourself. you can find tons fo freeware frameworks and classes that will help you.

PEAR has a few classes that can help you out.

there is one site on the net I always use to find classes. this is by far the most popular php classes and framework site on the net. the only problem is the site is a major pain in the XXX to surf and navigate, and is bloated with ads which makes the site load extremely slow, even with broadband.

-- EDITED --
after I finished writing this post, I surfed over to my favorite ajax site and found this. seems that I am not the only one who despises that site. check out the comments posted here

Thanks for the help. Looks like I got more to learn now because I don't really know the difference between GD and imagemagick. I really appreciate the help a lot. ^_^

Upon inspection it turns out that I didn't have the php_gd2 php extention enabled. Now all my dynamic images work.
