The imagecharup() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to draw a character vertically. This function draws the first character of a string in the image identified by the image with its x and y-axis. The coordinate of the top-left corner is (0, 0).

Syntax:

bool imagecharup( $image, $font, $x, $y, $c, $color )

Parameters: This function accepts six parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • $image: It is returned by one of the image creation functions, such as imagecreatetruecolor(). It is used to create size of image.
  • $font: This parameter is used to set font size of character. Its value can be 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 for built-in fonts in latin2 encoding. The higher numbers represents the larger fonts and small number represent small font.
  • $x: This parameter is used to set x-coordinate to print character in image.
  • $y: This parameter is used to set y-coordinate to print character in image.
  • $c: The character which is printed.
  • $color: It sets the color. A color identifier created by imagecolorallocate() function.

Return Value: This function returns true on success or false on failure.

Below programs illustrate the imagecharup() function in PHP.



Program 1:




<?php
  
// Creates the image size
$image = imagecreate(400, 300);
  
$string = 'GeeksForGeeks';
  
// Set background color
$bg = imagecolorallocate($image, 0, 153, 0);
  
// Set character color
$white = imagecolorallocate($image, 255, 255, 255);
  
// prints a white G character
imagecharup($image, 5, 190, 150, $string, $white);
  
header('Content-type: image/png');
imagepng($image);
  
?>

Output:
image

Program 2:




<?php
  
// Create image size
$image = imagecreate(400, 300);
  
$string = 'GeeksforGeeks';
  
// Find string length
$len = strlen($string);
  
// Set background color
$bg = imagecolorallocate($image, 0, 153, 0);
  
// Set character color
$white = imagecolorallocate($image, 255, 255, 255);
  
// Use loop to print string
for($i = 0; $i < $len; $i++)
  
    // Prints a white character $len times
    imagecharup($image, 6, 190, 230 - 10 * $i, $string[$i], $white);
  
header('Content-type: image/png');
imagepng($image);
  
?>
