Out here at Melonfire, we're big fans of PHP. We use it for a variety of reasons - Web site development, image generation, database connectivity - and we find it friendly, powerful and easy to use...all factors which come in handy when working against tight delivery deadlines.

You've already seen how PHP can be used to create GIF and JPEG images which dynamically respond to content from a database. But that's just the tip of the iceberg - the newest version of the language also comes with powerful functions that can dramatically ease the task of transferring files over the Web.
