Here's what I've got going so far. If you have gd library you can test it.
How would I go about loading true type fonts? I've gone through the tutorials here but they explain different types of font. when i simply try to change to tff it doesn't work.

I would deeply appreciate any help  :)

<?php
header("Content-type: image/gif");
$image = imagecreate( 300, 150 );
imagecolorallocate($image,100, 149, 237);
$border = imagecolorallocate($image, 0, 0, 0);
$string = '(C) blah blah';
$white = imagecolorallocate($image, 255, 255, 255);
$black = imagecolorallocate($image, 0, 0, 0);
imagestring($image, $font, 10, 10, "Hello", $black);
$len = strlen($string);
for ($i=1; $i<=$len; $i++) {
   imagecharup($image, $font_size, 5, imagesy($image)-($i*imagefontwidth($font_size)), $string, $black);
   $string = substr($string,1);
}
imagegif($image);
imagedestroy($image);
?>
