images in php/GD

P: n/a
im working on a web application that will manipulate an image that a user
uploads.
this image will then be printed.

what im wondering is how php/gd handles high res images at around 200dpi?

also if you have any tips on the right and wrong ways to do
things these would be appreciated.

thanks

You might want to take a look at ImageMagick.org. I don't know what you're
looking to do, but IM has quite a few features that can't be done easily with
PHP/GD.

If I'd know about it before I made an image editor (crop, brightness, contrast,
duotone (sepia, b&w, r, g, b), resize, quality) I would have saved myself a lot
of time.

I just did a preview form for a client who makes boat name graphics (the type
they stick to the back of boats) using it. It's a fairly simple script, but it
went much more quickly than it would have with PHP/GD.

My apologies for the multiple posts. My mail client kept saying that the
message could not be sent, so I changed outgoing mail server/username/password
combinations a few times. Apparently, it could be sent to the newsgroups, but
not to the email address.
