PHP Image Library

I had to write some code to generate graphs today and I must say that the image library is awesome! It reminds me of the swing class of Java, but I think it’s awfully neat to have a way to programmatically generate images. Although, I think PHP graphics are great for more “static” like pages, but wouldn’t be sufficient enough for webpages that need to see more “dynamic”. Eventually, all graphs will probably have to be done in AJAX, but for now, I can skim by creating simple graphs using the PHP image library. Maybe I’ll have display my email in the form of a picture instead of text, the possibilities are endless.
