Under Windows:
Edit your php.ini and remove the ; before this line:
;extension=php_gd2.dll

Then make sure the php_gd2.dll is located in your extension path. You can find your extension path by creating a php page with this in it:
<?php
  phpinfo();
?>

Then run it and find extension path


For Linux it depends on your Linux flavour..

No, you have to look for your extension path and copy the dll file there... (if it's not there yet of course)

You can search for the file with explorer to locate it on your local filesystem

It's not listed as gd2 by the way (once it's enabled) but as gd (with version number 2.x)
