Re: convert output changes with recent update

Thanks for the quick response. Sounds like it may be awhile before the fix makes it into a stable release that will be found in my distro's (Arch) repository. Meantime, I'll either have to live with the current effect for a time or revert to a pre -47 IM release, correct?

convert output changes with recent update

A recent ImageMagick update (to version 7.0.8-47) on my system has resulted in production of errant results from a script I've been running for a few months now. The script overlays onto an image some text that I download from the internet at regular intervals, adding a blurred shadow effect to the ...

Re: Text in gif: stroke switch causes Aborted: (core dumped)

Nevermind. I updated repositories today and noted that a slightly newer version of imagemagick was available: imagemagick-7.0.7.35-1. So I upgraded to it, and now the command listed above runs without errors. So it looks like maybe the Arch maintainer for this package might have compiled a defective...

[SOLVED] Text in gif: stroke switch causes Aborted: (core dumped)

Arch user here with imagemagick 7.0.7.34-1 installed. A script for adding text to a gif file, one I cobbled together some time ago, has stopped working recently. I get an "Aborted: (core dumped)" message when I try to run it. It's a really complex (and probably ugly) script, so I won't post the whol...

Re: Annotation with differing font sizes?

Thanks for your response, snibgo. What I'm doing is pretty complex and I feared I might wind up leaving out some crucial detail or other. What you suggest would, of course, work, if the text being superimposed were to be static. But in my case, the text, like the weather map itself, changes througho...

Annotation with differing font sizes?

These questions refer to IM version 6.9.5 runnning on a GNU/Linux system. The scenario: a lightweight WM/desktop that uses a weather map, regularly updated throughout the day, as a desktop background. I set up this auto-refreshing desktop a few years ago, and it uses wget to download the map and IM ...

Re: Problem displaying gif after mogrify -crop

Thanks for the quick reply, fmw42. A preliminary test indicates that adding the +repage switch will likely resolve this issue. I wanted to use the mogrify command for this since my aim is to overwrite the original image with the new one and I'd understood that the mogrify command is the way to do th...

Problem displaying gif after mogrify -crop

Hi. From what I gather so far the problem I am seeing relates mainly to the program I am using to display a gif after processing it using the mogrify -crop command--namely with feh (and maybe with giflib). I do not believe the issue relates to IM since I can display that processed gif just fine usin...

Re: Text of differing sizes in separate lines

Ok, I think I'm understanding a bit better how this works, fmw42. Font sizing in the solution I found is acceptable and I'm not, within certain limits, after a particular pointsize. So it sounds like maybe I could just leave out the -pointsize stipulation in the incantation I came up with above, yes?

Re: Text of differing sizes in separate lines

I've done some experimentation with -annotate but am so far having only limited success. The problem is that the second line of text ends up being too wide to fit into the 830 pixel width specified. As a result, the last few words of that line end up getting cut off unceremoniously. Somehow the capt...

Re: Text of differing sizes in separate lines

Well, great work GeeMack. I should've mentioned this is on Linux. I stripped out the carets and made it a one-liner. The process seemed to stall for 10-20 seconds but then completed and the results look like pretty much just what I'm after. I'll have to examine the command more closely to see whethe...

Text of differing sizes in separate lines

I've looked over the page http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/text/ and it's got some really helpful tips for accomplishing what I'm trying to do. In brief, I want to create an image file that is only text, which I intend to place at the top of a whiteboard on which I will be wiriting/drawing for a scr...

Can imagemagick do anything with *.stn files?

I'm cataloging a large archive of digital work produced by an elderly artist. For some of the work he was doing, it seems he used the Genuine Fractals Photoshop plug-in. At least that's my guess since I'm encountering a number of files with the .stn extension. I'm processing these files on my GNU/Li...

Re: Seeking advice on a complex image cataloging project

I am now--having resized and converted a few hundred images--at the phase of this process where I'm ready to create a sort of web album of the images. Bonzo's approach look attractive in some ways, but I'm not sure exactly how it works. I did modify the index.php file and placed it within a director...
