    GD library and the FreeType library

    hello

    To use ImageTTFText() it says on php.net that you have to have the following...

    >This function requires both the GD library and the FreeType >library.

    can someone just confirm for me quickly, this is something that needs to be installed on the server? before i hassle my host as to why it says nowhere on their site if its installed or not.

    thanks in advance

    The GD library needs to be compiled into PHP, to see if it is there or not use the phpinfo() function to get details of the PHP configuration. I haven't heard of the freetype library, but mind you, I don't know that much
