    Summary: A graphics library for drawing image files in various formats
    Gd is a graphics library.  It allows your code to quickly draw images
    complete with lines, arcs, text, multiple colors, cut and paste from
    other images, and flood fills, and write out the result as a PNG or
    JPEG file.  This is particularly useful in World Wide Web applications,
    where PNG and JPEG are two of the formats accepted for inline images
    by most browsers.
    Gd is not a paint program.  If you are looking for a paint program, you
    are looking in the wrong place.  If you are not a programmer, you are
    looking in the wrong place, unless you are installing a required
    library in order to run an application.
    Gd does not provide for every possible desirable graphics operation.
    It is not necessary or desirable for Gd to become a kitchen-sink
    graphics package, but version 2.0 does include most frequently
    requested features, including both truecolor and palette images,
    resampling (smooth resizing of truecolor images) and so forth.
