<?php

//You can resize the size you want to save again here.
$Avatar->Save('./avatars/Avatar256.png', 256);

Notice

If you do not need Chinese support, you can delete src/fonts/SourceHanSansCN-Normal.ttf.

When you input a Chinese character, it will automatically extract the first letter of the pinyin of the Chinese character instead of the original input if you deleted src/fonts/SourceHanSansCN-Normal.ttf.

$Avatar = new MDAvtars('', 512);//The pinyin of "林" is "Lin".

This will be the same as that below if you deleted src/fonts/SourceHanSansCN-Normal.ttf.

$Avatar = new MDAvtars('L', 512);//The first letter of that pinyin is "Lin".
