create image based on text? (8 posts)

    is there some way for me to automatically turn text in wordpress into an image (an image of the same text)

    for example, if i wanted my post titles to be a nice looking image, rather than text, is there a plugin or some simple code i could use to convert some text into an image?

    not sure if this is so much a wordpress question as it is a general coding question?

    I guess you are looking for something like this plugin:

    Check if it works with 2.0, though:

    I can't get this plugin to work in even 1.5.2

    it's a bummer, cause it's such a fine plug.

    dss - the only problems I had were the image/ttf paths. There were more than I saw initially. What problems did you have?

    The options page is not found.

    Just use the Css to make the post title have an image as a background. Be careful if you intend to use text also, but if you just want an image for your post headings, this is the best way to do so, in my opinion.

    Agree with LiverpoolLad here.

    CSS is a much better option then seperate images for each heading, you could use a common background image for all headings or something similiar - there is plenty of info out there (try a google for Fancy CSS Headings)
