I'm new to the whole dynamic images thing.. I've picked up on a few simple commands so far, I can take an image apply simple writing on it and develop a new image from it using GD.

Here is the code so far:

<?php
$image = imagecreatefrompng("text_background.png");
$font_size = 7;
$color = imagecolorallocate($image, 255,255,255);
$black = imagecolorallocate($image, 0,0,0);
$text = "Test!";
$font = "TT0768M_.TTF";

ImageTTFText ($image, $font_size, 0, 4, 10, $black, $font, $text);

ImageTTFText ($image, $font_size, 0, 5, 10, $color, $font, $text);

header("Content-type: image/png");
imagepng($image);
imagedestroy($image);
?>

Much I just picked up from some tutorials, so again I don't know too much.

What I want to do is create images using a unique font with a pre-made background image that have bold and stroke attributes.

Here is what I'm attempting to replicate automaticly instead of make a dozens manually :
5.25 KB, 60px by 16px.

Due to conditions outside of my control this topic was not viewable for a period of time after its creation, hence forth nobody seen it. I'm bumping this topic (but once) in hope someone can view and respond.

bold: using imagettftext(), you'll have to have a bold font. Some programs like browsers are able to emulate a bold font with a normal font when there's no bold font available, but imagettftext won't be able to do that for you. Stroke: you mean strikethrough? you might have to do this 'manually' with imageline().

//Stroke: you mean strikethrough?

No, Stroke is when there is a outline or border color around the text.

I have been able to duplicate it by first setting down the text offset in each direction. Then using the main color in the center.
