I am currently dabbling on the file PHP –– Image Processing –– part 5: ImageMagick to update the script for making bold text as the current one does not work. It is proving to be more difficult than I thought, but I have made some recent progress.
At present, I am rewriting it to be a bit clearer and to fix a few lingering bugs.
EDIT: 12/25/19 I am abandoning it. The more I think about how this code works, the more I feel it does not work the way it should. At larger sizes the text becomes bumpy with extra angles.
One more thought on the editor program I have been having trouble with that is only affecting me.
I added a small snippet of code that will trim whitespace from my scripts so that I can save files with system() commands. Basically, I add a space before the <?php part of the script which is then automatically trimmed out so that is saves "correctly".
If the space is not trimmed out then many of the system() commands will not work.
