    imagecreatefromjpeg(); is just in 256 color?

    Yes i have a resize script thatīs create a "thumbnail" version of the image with imagecreatefromjpeg(); and itīs return a pretty lame solution.... a photo in 256 color...

    So one guy told me that i should use instead imagecreatetruecolor(); but that syntax is only in version 2,0 or higher in libGD from boutell.

    That gave me a error of this syntax and i think defenetly that donīt have version 2,0 or higher in GD but i tryed to get the latest version of the php and just copyed the php_gd.dll in the extension DIR of the php version iīm using but i worked either.

    Iīm using windows2k/ME

    The old file was about 450kb but the new file (php_gd.dll) is 550kb i think so itīs for sure that this is a newer version.

    but that didnīt work

    I load the module in the script directly ( use dl("php_gd.dll");

    But how can i install the latest version from boutell.com, itīs just a precompiled tarball and iīm no linux guy :/ , on windows2k/ME?

    It it enough to just let someone compile it for me and get the dll file from him?

    To use the newer version just put it in the extensions folder, back up the old one first just incase!

    ( use dl("php_gd.dll"); This will just use the old one, as you are calling the one in the extensions folder, unless I'm wrong
