Input from text fields into an image maybe JPEG

by anthonychallis / October 13, 2010 9:20 AM PDT

I have been trying to create a script for my website where I can input a set of textfields and turn these into an image. This is basically the same script so you can preview i.e. if you wanted to add text onto the back of a football top.

Can anyone help me please? or point me in the right direction as I am really struggling with this! I dont mind which language although I have looked at php and javascript + asp.net and have had no joy. I can get the text to appear above the image but not save both of them together. To get it to work with the text above the image i am basically adding the image as a table bacckground and then adding labels above it where I need the textfields to goto.

Please help!!

But here goes. Yes you have a lot of script to write but let me tackle the text to image issue. If I recall IMAGE MAGICK can do that. Link about:

With that done you can proceed to craft more script for the backend to get this done.

Image Magick can do that and is available with most hosts.
