    A Signature Editor

    Is it possible to have a picture file be displayed on a viewer screen that allows that user to insert text onto it?

    To get at more of what i'm talking about go to edit on one of your post and select advance edit. The edit box that you see displays your text and you could type onto it. And the background of that was the signature.

    Can anyone point me to a guide or write me a sample code that will help me do this?

    I haven't got an image on my signature, but from what you are asking you wanna set an image as a background and then allow people to type over the top of it? This is an example of how to do that in a textarea:

    Code:
    <style>
    textarea {
     color: white;
     background-image: url(http://www.tutorialized.com/upload/(...yMouse5050.gif);
    }
    </style>
    <textarea rows="2" cols="20">
    This is an example of using CSS to apply a background to a textarea.
    </textarea>
    I have included the <style>'s so I can show you it working without having to create a .css file and post a live link for ya. If this isn't what you're talking about, please post some more details champ.

    I hope this helped someone. Due to this forums lame rep system penalising me for nothing, and admins inability to do anything about it, I'm sorry to say I will no longer be online here. Pride is important. Good Luck All.

    Well this isn't what i really have in mind =\

    But, however, it could work to a degree. Is there some kind of code that code take a snapshot of the end result and allow the user to save it to their computer? Also i tried out the script and that background does not work.

    Well, if you copied and pasted exactly how it displays in the browser, yeah the image won't work. Look at the link the browser shows for the image, then hover over the link. This forum is abbreviating the image's location with ....'s for some reason. That code works otherwise.

    And you want to screenshot what people have typed and save it to an image?? What exactly are you trying to achieve here mate? Extreme detail would be nice, I didn't 100&#37; understand what you're trying to do but posted up anyways.. I mean the forum doesn't allow images in signatures, so your initial example didn't make any sense to me either

    Cheers

    In many different forums people can put up what they call a signature in the signature box. like this--
    What i had hope was that a person could type over that picture wherever they want and what kind of font, size, colors, etc. they want on it. I hope that made more sense.

    This can be done but its not something someone is going to do just for free. This a time consuming project and it will take a pro to code this. I know you've posted this in the work offers forum but couldn't seem to afford it. That is the going price for something like this. If you find someone cheaper well don't be surprised when it doesn't work or has problems. You get what you pay for.

    You know you are right. But i was kinda hoping for pieces or something close that works to it so i could work off from it. Never hurts to ask.

    Do a google search for "creating images with dynamic text with php". Here is a tutorial http://www.developertutorials.com/tu...623/page1.html
    Another one: http://www.webcheatsheet.com/PHP/dyn...generation.php

    You will also need to learn how to get it to save the image. You have the internet at your finger tips use it.

    Ahh sweet sweet clarification! I will check out the links Aero gave you and let you know if I come up with anything for you. I'm an unemployed bozo at the moment, so I just may have the time Do u already have a website you want to implement this on? And man this forum seems to stuff your post up sometimes, I notice you have "Its" at the bottom of your post and nothing afterwards- did that say something extra before you posted? I've had it cut my messages off before.. very very annoying!
