in reply to Dynamic image collages delivered by webserver

This isn't a code writing service. You have to show some effort or you will not get good responses.

You should start by reading the docs for GD and Image::Magick. Study and try out all of the demos and test cases (they both include those). Search this site for posts about those modules and learn more about them. Then when you've done all of that, you should be in a position to write the script you want. If it doesn't work, you can make a new post that not only tells what is and isn't working but also shows the code so that we can help you with it.

    I'm not looking for a code writing service. What is it with you people? Where do you get this belief that people like me are looking for a polished script?

    I'm not asking for the moon here. I'm only asking for two things.

    .

    1. A suggestion of which module you think would be better suited for my goal and a concise tutorial on how to install them.

    -- One that provides a WORKING link to a WORKING (Perl v5.10 compatible) installer, pm file or archive file, and explains exactly how to install it if it isn't already an wrapped in an installer itself.......... rather than the usual "tutorial by bibliography" list of (often dead) links a la "you might find it here or here or here or here, and tips on how to install it here or here or here or here." --

    - Hey dude, I think this module would be better for you
    - download it here (direct link or link to site and specify which version I should get, ie: is compatible and has all the basics of point 2...)
    - run the installer -- or -- put the files here and type this

    .

    2. Basic functions that I can play with. To build an image consisting of smaller images and colored text and lines.

    use blah; $img = new image; $img -> insertImage(paramenters); $img -> changeColor(paramenters); $img -> insertText(paramenters); $img -> changeColor(paramenters); $img -> insertLine(paramenters);

    A "Hello World" picture, if you will. That's all I'm after. Is that so hard?

    If you just plain don't know but don't want to come right out and say it, that's fine to. Just don't reply.

      That's all I'm after. Is that so hard?

      Each one of the modules you mentioned comes with all those things, instructions on how to install, hundreds of examples.
