Dynamic Images

I need to know how to make dynamic images. The best example I can find of how to do this is at mygamercard.net
It takes the live info and puts in on the image. I need to be able to get to it be going to mydomain.com/username
Any ideas?

Diocia,

There are a number of software libraries which allow you to generate images on the fly. All of them require that components be installed on your server, so you will have to shop around to find a server that supports the one you wish to use. Mark_FreeSoftware has given you some information on PHP image handling, you can also do it with Perl, ASP or ASP.NET. Here's some information for you:

ASP.NET
