Hi, I' m the author of GD::SecurityImage. Image::Magick was an early addition and it was a request from someone else. It does not use the full power of Image::Magick (which is far more powerful than GD, but slower) and is merely a compatibility layer. You can use several different fonts and randomly changing styles/particles/scramble to make it hard for OCRs. But it may be possible to crack.. I don't know (I got zero feedback on this subject).

I didn't like Authen::Captcha' s approach with "graphic letters" and it's lack of plug-ability. It has it's own flat file database, while I prefer DB & sessions. I also like Tim Toady ;) I've added a sample part to show the generated images: GD::SecurityImage

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
