INTRODUCTION
======================================================================================================================
Use this software to generate banners or other images on-the-fly, using JavaScript and PHP. It's experimental and 
still in an early stage of development, but it offers some nice features already:

    o Image size and background color can be modified.
    o All image contents are treated as objects that can be modified separately.
    o Supports 5 different object types: text, ellipse, triangle, rectangle and image.
    o Contains 14 fonts.
    o Size, background/line color and opacity of objects can be modified.
    o Horizontal and vertical margins/alignments of objects can be modified.
    o Supports object rotation.

This software should work with PHP 4 or higher.

USAGE
======================================================================================================================
Extract the files to your webserver and adapt the configuration file (config.inc.php) to your needs.

If you want to use ImageMaker as a stand-alone software, just open imagemaker.php with your favorite browser - that's 
all, have fun. ;-)

However, if you want to integrate ImageMaker into your website like I did in the introduction section of
http://www.gerd-tentler.de/tools/imagemaker/, add this code to your PHP page where you want the generator to appear:

  <?php include_once('path/to/imagemaker.inc.php'); ?>
  <script type="text/javascript">
  var imo = new IMAGEMAKER();
  imo.create();
  </script>

BTW, you can create as many generators as you like on the same page.
