Php Text Image

Hello Experts,

I am creating a menu using the Franklin Condensed Font...

I have tried fontface but it renders diferently to the screenshot I produced in Photoshop.

I like the "smooth" option used in photoshop on this font, so I tried to recreate it using this php script...
<?php
// Set the content-type
header('Content-Type: image/png');

// Create the image
$im = imagecreatetruecolor(400, 30);

// Create some colors
$white = imagecolorallocate($im, 255, 255, 255);
$black = imagecolorallocate($im, 0, 0, 0);
imagefilledrectangle($im, 0, 0, 399, 29, $black);

// The text to draw
$text = 'COMPANY PROFILE';
// Replace path by your own font path
$font = 'franklin.ttf';


// Add the text
imagettftext($im, 10, 0, 10, 20, $white, $font, $text);

// Using imagepng() results in clearer text compared with imagejpeg()
imagepng($im);
imagedestroy($im);
?>

But as you can see from the screenshot... the output image is of a poor quality next to the photoshop screenshot...

Any Ideas??

I assume you are trying to use the script to dynamically create the menu each time.  If so, I'd recommend that you make the images in Photoshop and use them on the web site.  It will cut down on the processing required by the server to build your menus.

If I missed the boat on this one, let me know what your end goal is....

For image quality, you may want to play with the imagequlaity parameter.  Higher quality will make a bigger file.  There is a trade-off invovled.  imagejpeg() has a default quality of 75 (out of 100.)
