I'm making an e-commerce shop and made the index with PHP images.
Those images cost lot of time to load the page again.
Any Idea what's the best way of making images with php?
Is it better to save the images u make and use those? Or keep it dynamicaly made?

the best way would be to save the images you've created with php, and use the saved images for your site. generating images every time a page is loaded is pretty unusual for moderate - high traffic pages. as you've already observed, it takes a long time for a client to load an entire page. if you have a lot of clients viewing the page, your server will suffer from a high load as well.

I think I'm gonna do it that way.
Create the buttons first and after that i'll just use the *.gif files.
