I'm dynamically generating a PNG image using PHP 7.3/GD based on a text provided by the user.
Everything works as expected, but I'd like to apply some kind of filter/effect to obtain a Gold-plated style, such as below:
Any idea how to achieve this? I've found solutions to apply blur/glow/shadow or to solve this via HTML5/CSS3 but I must use GD/PHP for this project.
Here's my current code:
<?php putenv('GDFONTPATH='.realpath('.')); header('Content-Type: image/png'); $im = imagecreatetruecolor(300, 200); $bg = imagecolorallocate($im, 255, 255, 255); imagefill($im, 0, 0, $bg); $gold = imagecolorallocate($im, 255, 215, 0); imagettftext($im, 28, 0, 76, 110, $gold, 'HirukoBlackAlternate.ttf', 'Stack'); imagepng($im); imagedestroy($im);
