Examples

Example 1. Embossing the PHP.net logo

<?php

$emboss = array(array(2, 0, 0), array(0, -1, 0), array(0, 0, -1));
imageconvolution($image, $emboss, 1, 127);

header('Content-Type: image/png');
imagepng($image, null, 9);
?>

The above example will output:

Example 2. Gaussian blur

<?php
$image
= imagecreatetruecolor(180,40);

// Writes the text and apply a gaussian blur on the image
imagestring($image, 5, 10, 8, 'Gaussian Blur Text', 0x00ff00);
$gaussian = array(array(1.0, 2.0, 1.0), array(2.0, 4.0, 2.0), array(1.0, 2.0, 1.0));
imageconvolution($image, $gaussian, 16, 0);

// Rewrites the text for comparison
imagestring($image, 5, 10, 18, 'Gaussian Blur Text', 0x00ff00);

header('Content-Type: image/png');
imagepng($image, null, 9);
?>

The above example will output:
