watari_exd has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've only recently started using GD Simple, following the tutorials out there. My question is, is there a way to color the entire image (let's call it the pallet) with a background color, so that the things you're drawing in your image appear on that background? In the tutorials, fgcolor and bgcolor appear only to apply to the pen and the things (e.g., polygons, etc.) created in the image. Also, in the examples given in the tutorials, all of such objects are printed on a non-transparent white background.
Is there a solution to this?
