imagepsloadfont -- Load a PostScript Type 1 font from file


int imagepsloadfont ( string filename)

In the case everything went right, a valid font index will be returned and can be used for further purposes. Otherwise the function returns FALSE and prints a message describing what went wrong, which you cannot read directly, while the output type is image.

header ("Content-type: image/jpeg");
$im = imagecreate (350, 45);
$black = imagecolorallocate ($im, 0, 0, 0);
$white = imagecolorallocate ($im, 255, 255, 255);
$font = imagepsloadfont ("bchbi.pfb"); // or locate your .pfb files on your machine
imagepstext ($im, "Testing... It worked!", $font, 32, $white, $black, 32, 32);
imagepsfreefont ($font);
imagejpeg ($im, "", 100); //for best quality...your mileage may vary
imagedestroy ($im);
