(I know, you want JPEG, but this may be useful) PHP does support image creation but it's not build-in, it assumes that you've got the GD library. the GIF support of the GD library is de-activated since the GIF affair, but you can find an old version. anyway, i tried the GD, but i didn't liked it. rather use the PERL library image::magik, it's very complete, scalable and versatile http://www.imagemagik.org http://www.php.net/manual/ref.image.php there are image magik php functions, but only in PHP3 and i didn't found them on the php site.
