Dimension Text

Posted by queviltai on January 02, 2009

Draw text with effects that make the text seem slightly higher or lower than its background, or with a shadow effect. You only have to use slightly modified versions of the draw_text function to achieve a variety of two dimensional effects that make your writing seem a whole lot more interesting. This extension works quickly and effectively. This .zip contains a help file and a simple, commented example.
