My question would be why would you want to? To avoid image recognition software sites are using ever more messed up characters in such image verification - something which is increasingly causing problems for people who are colour blind or have less than perfect eye sight.

A fairly basic system (in terms of the graphics generated) would not be overly difficult (but would require careful planning) if you have access to a MySQL database to store the details of the characters in the image, and the GD2 php graphics module to write the characters to the image.

Alternatively you could have a set of pre-defined images, say a cat, a dog and a fish. Then ask the user to type in or select from a pull down menu the type of animal displayed. This option is less of a problem in terms of restricting accessibility of the website.
