Sorry, I do as little with MS-Windows as possible. Is it safe to presume 
that a page consisting of just this:

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

...reports that the gd functions are available? If not, obtain and 
compile the GD library before building PHP. I'm somewhat spoilt, it's a 
one-liner (urpmi php5-gd) to install that here.

Even if gd is there, you might like to investigate the ImageMagick 
functions, which can do all sorts of snazzy stuff. If you think you 
have both, and neither is working, then you might need to set some 
environment variables or move stuff around so that PHP can "see" the 
required libraries.

Please post in plain text rather than HTML.

Cheers; Leon
