Hey,

Is it possible to create a blank image of any size, and then import images and place them onto that image to generate 1 image?

So...

GD creates the canvas (blank image), I then can specify images for GD to use that can be placed onto that image.  So at the end, the final result will be just 1 image.

Been trying various things, but nothing works.

Thanks

Yes this is very well possible

I think you will find most of it, if not all of what you want to do in this tutorial:

http://www.nyphp.org/content/presentations/GDintro/

and take a look at the gd functions
http://php.net/gd

I think you're especially looking for the imagecreate and imagecopy functions in that list

Of course it is. imagecreatetruecolor() to make the canvas, then imagecreatefromjpeg() to load images and imagecopy() to copy them onto the canvas.
BOL!
