What is the GD library?

GD is an open source code library for the dynamic creation of images by programmers. GD is written in C, and "wrappers" are available for Perl, PHP and other languages. GD creates PNG, JPEG and GIF images, among other formats. GD is commonly used to generate charts, graphics, thumbnails, and most anything else, on the fly. While not restricted to use on the web, the most common applications of GD involve web site development.

The GD library is normally standard in any PHP installations off the hosting companies. The million pixel script needs this library to create the pixelgrids and images.

It is recommended to use a GD library version 2 or higher.
