PHP 8.0.24 Released!


Para habilitar el soporte para GD configure PHP con --with-gd[=DIR], donde DIR es el directorio de instalación base de GD. Para usar la versión de la biblioteca GD integrada recomendada use la opción de configuración --with-gd. La biblioteca GD requiere libpng y libjpeg para compilarse.

En Windows, incluirá la DLL GD2 php_gd2.dll como una extensión en php.ini.

Mejore las capacidades de GD para manejar más formatos de imagen especificando la opción de configuración --with-XXXX en la línea de configuración de PHP.

Formatos de imagen soportados
Formato de Imagen Opción de Configuración
jpeg Para habilitar el suporte para jpeg añadir --with-jpeg-dir=DIR. Jpeg 6b, 7 o 8 están soportados.
png Para habilitar el soporte para png añada --with-png-dir=DIR. Nota, libpng requiere la biblioteca zlib, por lo tanto añada --with-zlib-dir[=DIR] a la línea de configuración.
xpm Para habilitar el soporte para xpm añada --with-xpm-dir=DIR. Si la configuración no es capaz de encontrar las bibliotecas requeridas, se puede añadir la ruta a las bibliotecas X11.
webp Para habilitar el soorte para webp añada --with-vpx-dir=DIR. Disponible a partri de PHP 5.5. A partir de PHP 7.0.0 se ha añadido --with-webp-dir=DIR, es decir, el soporte para libvpx se ha eliminado en favor de libwebp.

Nota: Cuando se compila PHP con libpng, se debe usar la misma versión que fue enlazada con la biblioteca GD.

Mejore las capacidades de GD para tratar con difenrentes fuentes especificando la opción de configuración --with-XXXX en la línea de configuración de PHP.

Bibliotecas de fuentes soportadas
Biblioteca de fuentes Opción de configuración
FreeType 2 Para habilitar el soporte para FreeType 2 añada --with-freetype-dir=DIR.
T1lib Para habilitar el soporte para T1lib (fuentes Postscript Type 1) añada --with-t1lib[=DIR]. (Eliminada a partir de PHP 7.0.0).
Función de cadena TrueType nativa Para habilitar el soporte para la función de cadena TrueType nativa añada --enable-gd-native-ttf.

On Ubuntu I was missing the libpng-dev, libjpeg-dev (and in my case) libwebp-dev libraries, all gettable with apt-get.

Also once those libraries are installed, including --with-png-dir --with-jpeg-dir --with-webp-dir, without any values (i.e. =/dir) appeared to be valid ... though admittedly I didn't try without (in case the configure script autodetected them).

It should be noted that it might be pretty easy to install gd without the need to recompile php, when using debian:

apt-get install php5-gd

People having difficulties setting the --with-libdir option needs to set it like this :


That option works fine. Doing --with-libdir=/usr/lib64 doesn't work because the configure script prepends the --prefix option before the --with-libdir option. So, doing --with-libdir=/usr/lib64 makes the configure script to look for libs in /usr/usr/lib64, which is wrong of course, and not in /usr/lib64.

If you have already compiled PHP and want to recompile '--with-gd', don't forget to run 'make clean' first!

If you are using PHPBREW , the extension is called gd.
So you do.
phpbrew ext install gd

It will compile the extension to the core.

As of PHP 7.4, to enable GD you have to use --enable-gd instead of --with-gd

Hello. Does GD image processing allow for color spaces / color profiles to be defined or maintained from the source image? For example, if I upload a jpg with ProPhoto RGB color space with the embedded profile, will all of the subsequent processed images that are output maintain the profile? Or is there no profile and or is it changed to sRGB?

Same question goes for ImageMagick.

Thank you so much!
