Live Preview imaging components?

    I have a client who wants to build a site where customers can get a live preview of text and graphics before ordering product. He's seen a couple of sites that do this, where you check some options in a form, choose a font, enter your text and the site generates an image on the fly.

    The only code I've seen so far to do this is imageview.php but it seems like this is very prone to sql injection hacks.

    Is anyone aware of other scripts/components that might be usable for this? Preferably ASP, but I can do php if necessary. I know ASPImage can do limited text effects, but I doubt it's sophisticated enough for this purpose.

    Thanks

    GD can do it with PHP not sure of ASP side objects, I am sure there are some asp.net ones but if they will work in medium trust is another issue.

    Stephen, thanks I will look at GD. So far, problem seems to be lack of font options. Is GD already installed on Jodo servers?
