But I digress.
Handling different output types
Lets face it, we all love making funny little images with PHP code. You should as well (if you don't already).
Read through the PHP Manual
It's long, and there's likely a lot of stuff you'll probably never use, but if you have the patience (or tenacity!) to sit down and read, you'll command much greater knowledge than fumbling through over time. You're allowed to skip function libraries that don't look interesting.
Note: They're not in order of priority by any means, nor are they necessarily
learning. Just a few suggestions that you might, perhaps, like to look into.
