Wait, let's try to simply the task:

  1. you want to write text to an image?
  2. Or you want to extract text from an existing HTML code?

I want to convert a div content (which in clude text & background image) to an image (thimbnail).


Ok, that's clear, my point is this:

If you can generate that div through PHP, then you don't need to convert it, you have to use the same data source to create a different result, through an image library as GD or Imagick.

If you're working on static HTML, or external pages, then it becomes complex, you could use DOMDocument and then an image library to create the result.

That's why I'm asking those questions.
