You need to use the bold or italic version of the font.

For example, there are 4 Times New Roman font files:

  times.ttf Non-italic, normal weight
  timesi.ttf Italic, normal weight
  timesbd.ttf Non-italic, bold weight
  timesbi.ttf Italic, bold weight

To produce bold output you'd do:

  my $font = Imager::Font->new(file=>"path/to/fonts/timesbd.ttf");
