% gd is a graphics library. It allows your code to quickly draw images
% complete with lines, arcs, text, multiple colors, cut and paste from
% other images, and flood fills, and write out the result as a PNG, GIF
% or JPEG file. This is particularly useful in World Wide Web applications,
% where PNG, GIF and JPEG are three of the formats accepted for inline
% images by most browsers.
% gd does  not provide for every possible desirable graphics operation,
% but version 2.0 does include most frequently requested features,
% including both truecolor and palette images, resampling (smooth
% resizing of truecolor images) and so forth.
