Hi there,

I am trying to use the ImageTTFText function to output some text onto an
existing image. Problem being though that the text does not get
outputted. I have placed the ttf file 'arial.ttf' within the same
directory as my script. Here is a snippet of my code:

    Header("Content-Type: image/png");
    $im = ImageCreateFromPNG("original_image.png");

    $text_colour = ImageColorAllocate($im, 255, 255, 255);

    ImageTTFText($im, 20, 0, 3, 3, $text_colour, "/arial.ttf", "My


All this outputs is my original PNG image (with no text). I have used
the following line instead of ImageTTFText and all works well.

    ImageString($im, 4, 3, 3, "My text", $text_colour);

Using phpinfo() I have checked the GD section and the following is

GD Support - enabled
GD Version - 2.0 or higher
FreeType Support - enabled
FreeType Linkage - with freetype
JPG Support - enabled
PNG Support - enabled
WBMP Support - enabled

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why this does not work? Has
anyone else used the ImageTTFText function successfully?
