Imager can use either FreeType 1.x or 2.x for rendering TrueType fonts, and you need to have those libraries installed before installing Imager.

The same applies to tiff, gif, png and jpeg file support.

    for some reason Imager cannot find the libraries it needs, so i assumed the computer didnt have them, and tried to install them, only to find out it does, i just have no idea where. and if i were able to find them, where would i put them to make it possible for Imager to read them?

      You don't say which platform on, so it's hard to be specific.

      Most Linux distributions, for example, will only install the shared libraries when you install say the "libpng" package, but Imager also needs the header files, which means you need to install -dev or -devel package too, eg, libfreetype6 on Debian gives you the Freetype 2 libraries, but you also need to install libfreetype6-dev to get the headers that Imager needs to build its freetype 2 code.
