Vector EPS/PS From PHP & ImageMagick Or GDJul 17, 2005
I'm creating a web-based application that uses PHP, MySQL &
Apache on a Windows platform. What I need to do is create images on
the fly with either GD or ImageMagick, display them on the web browser
and then save the file.
The tricky part is the format of that saved file - it needs to be an
EPS format. The image won't be anything terribly exciting - just some
basic shapes (boxes, circles, etc) and some text. No fancy colors,
textures, or effects. It will be imported into a vector-based program
and processed there. That program can only import EPS files, other
than their own proprietary format.
Is this even possible without getting into hardcore programming? Does
ImageMagick or GD offer some kind of vector-based file format? Is
there something that I'm not seeing in the documentation? If this is
better accomplished using the libraries and programs in Linux, that is
certainly an option.
