[thelist] Using TTF within an image

Can someone please show me how to change the display font to a TTF in this 
code? I looked at the online manual under imageloadfont(), but I did not 
understand it enough. I have the MS TTFs installed on my server and they 
are working correctly.



header ("Content-type: image/png");
$string = "Text message goes here";
$font = "2";
$width = ImageFontWidth($font) * strlen($string);
$height = ImageFontHeight($font);
$im = @imagecreate ($width,$height);
$background_color = imagecolorallocate ($im, 255, 255, 255); //white 
$text_color = imagecolorallocate ($im, 0, 0,0);//black text
imagestring ($im, $font, 0, 0, $string, $text_color);
imagepng ($im);
