imagefilledellipse($image, 200, 100, 150, 150, $yellow);
imagefilledellipse($image, 275, 100, 150, 150, $red);
imagefilledellipse($image, 240, 180, 150, 150, $blue);

$yellow = imagecolorallocatealpha($image, 255, 255, 0, 75);
$blue   = imagecolorallocatealpha($image, 0, 0, 255, 75);
  
// Drawing filled circle
imagefilledellipse($image, 200, 150, 150, 150, $yellow);
imagefilledellipse($image, 280, 150, 150, 150, $blue);
