<h2>What is the GD library?</h2>
<p>GD is an open source code library for the dynamic creation of images
by programmers. GD is written in C, and &quot;wrappers&quot; are available for
Perl, PHP and other languages. GD creates PNG, JPEG and GIF images,
among other formats. GD is commonly used to generate charts, graphics,
thumbnails, and most anything else, on the fly. While not restricted
to use on the web, the most common applications of GD involve website
development.</p>
<p>The library was originally developped by <a class="reference external" href="http://www.boutell.com/">Thomas Boutell</a> and is now
maintained by <a class="reference external" href="http://blog.thepimp.net/">Pierre-A. Joye</a> under the umbrella of <a class="reference external" href="http://php.net/">PHP.net</a>.</p>
