    Hi

    I got a problem with ImageCreateFromGif() function. In the documentation it is said that i'll need GD libary, it is also said that verion 1.6 of GD doesn't support GIF creation anymore.

    Please help me, i have to finish my image cration script till friday, i thought it'll be a piece of cake

    What should I do, maybe implement FLY! lib's? But i REALLY don't know how to use them! Or maybe could somebody send me GD pre 1.6 version?

    Regards,
    Arkadiusz Goralski

    Hi Goral,

    Unisys the owner of the gif compression algorithm patent does not allow using the algorithm without paying for a license. So version prior 1.6 may have legal problems.

    Nevertheless you'll find old versions on several ftp sites. Use altavista.com to search for "gd-1.5".
