[array$options = ]
Prior to PHP 8.0.0, imagefttext was an extended variant of imagettftext which additionally supported the options. As of PHP 8.0.0, imagettftext is an alias of imagefttext.
A GdImage object, returned by one of the image creation functions, such as imagecreatetruecolor.
The font size to use in points.
The angle in degrees, with 0 degrees being left-to-right reading text. Higher values represent a counter-clockwise rotation. For example, a value of 90 would result in bottom-to-top reading text.
The coordinates given by x and y will define the basepoint of the first character (roughly the lower-left corner of the character). This is different from the imagestring, where x and y define the upper-left corner of the first character. For example, "top left" is 0, 0.
The y-ordinate. This sets the position of the fonts baseline, not the very bottom of the character.
The index of the desired color for the text, see imagecolorexact.
The path to the TrueType font you wish to use.
Depending on which version of the GD library PHP is using, when font_filename does not begin with a leading / then .ttf will be appended to the filename and the library will attempt to search for that filename along a library-defined font path.
In many cases where a font resides in the same directory as the script using it the following trick will alleviate any include problems.
// Set the environment variable for GD
putenv('GDFONTPATH=' . realpath('.'));
// Name the font to be used (note the lack of the .ttf extension)
$font = 'SomeFont';
Text to be inserted into image.

This function returns an array defining the four points of the box, starting in the lower left and moving counter-clockwise:
|0||lower left x-coordinate|
|1||lower left y-coordinate|
|2||lower right x-coordinate|
|3||lower right y-coordinate|
|4||upper right x-coordinate|
|5||upper right y-coordinate|
|6||upper left x-coordinate|
|7||upper left y-coordinate|
On failure, false is returned.
This function is only available if PHP is compiled with freetype support (--with-freetype-dir=DIR)
|8.0.0||image expects a GdImage instance now; previously, a resource was expected.|
