Default Coding Images to change

Ok so if you guys have seen pictures like this:

http://www.junk.ws/halo2/sig/X%20BRU...E%20X/sig5.jpg


and other Halo 2 stats that auto-update and are images you can post, I want to know how you make those so you could have one for a gamercard:

http://gamercard.xbox.com/Amarine.card

So, if anyone can tell me how to make one or make one for me, I will host and give you credit. Thanks.

you need to create the image using the gd tools, this can be done quite easily using PHP..

I have one in my signature on other forums to say how many units I've crunched in a distributed computing project. would have it here except signature images arn't allowed.

no, he's talking about creating a dynamic picture, like on that changes...
this picture (for instance) changes to reflect the IP addresses of the people browsing the forum.



don't worry, nobody else can see your address...

in relation to the negative reputation points with the rather sarcastic comment of "helpful"...

there is google
http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en...o+change&meta=

http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en...ange+php&meta=

http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en...e+php+gd&meta=

and in case that wasn't enough stuff to get you started there is a search engine built into the PHP site (www.php.net). which ties in with google...

http://www.google.com/search?q=image...w.php.net&l=en

As in I went to the php site and typed image into their search engine...
I can appreciate that you didn't have a clue where to start, but even googling for words you used in your own post churns up a lot of usefull stuff, combine that with the two important words from my post, (php gd) and it's practically giving you the code...

in fact, look towards the bottom of this page... http://uk.php.net/gd they are giving you the code!!




Your sarcasm is met with sarcasm... the only problem being that I havn't lost out because of it...

how do you mean?

are your ststistics that you want to put onto the image already on the internet somewhere? perhaps on a central server?
