Welcome to the ImageStripHandler!

This program can be used to create counter, date, and time images using strip gif images. It can also create images using plain text for strings containing any type of character. The ImageStripHandler has the ability to alter the image via rotation, spin, inversion, and transparency. It also has the ability to create and update count files, allowing the user to keep track of things such as the number of hits on a website.
