I was trying to get GD to work for ages and then realised that its fairly crap. So i tried image magic on my free server but it didnt have it
... I finally found www.firefuse.com
hosting company and sent them an email about it email@example.com. They do really cheap hosting packages because their largely non-profit. Sort of by the people for the people hosting.
So now i have a really great server package with Image magik, cpanel, fantastico (installs coppermine and phpbb ect with one click on your server).
im on the bronzeplus package
$3.95/month = 500mb space, 10,000MB bandwidth, PHP, Perl, CGI, Cpanel, Image magic
But they also do Bronze for people who dont need the extra space (you can request more space)
$1.95/month = 200mb space 7,500MB bandwidth, PHP, perl, cpanel, image magic
By the way if you get a package here the path for IM is usr/local/bin/convert (i already asked).
So there you are homies. Bask in the delights. (Thought i'd give something back since ive been using this forum loads to get mods and support)
Split this posting from Watermarking hack (w/ ImageMagick)
