Re: Creating a logrithmic grid?

Sorry, I left off the link: https://secure.php.net/imagick

--ETA: That's the php version, I have no clue where I got the python wrapper for that at, titled the same.

Re: Creating a logrithmic grid?

I'm now just using a shell call to bash since it's not a secure system, and I use some of your (Fred's Scripts) which I just looked and realize I need to update. For simpler stuff like resize or auto-color-correct, I've used the python-imageck library, ported from PHP. I have looked at the python-li...

Anthony's Icon Library is a 404. Tile or Pattern archive to get?

The icon/tile/pattern library linked In the manual on Creating Canvas loacated at http://www.ict.griffith.edu.au/anthony/icons/ gives me a 404 error. I've tried a search for that, but end up with a lot of advertising and not many relevant results. Is there an updated link for it, or a mirror of it l...

Re: Creating a logrithmic grid?

Thank you, GeeMack! That works, now I've just got to put it into the python script for text, which I've got set up. When messing with an otherwise boring task, I love adding things like this to make it look more recent than 1980, but not too much more, and add in all sorts of useless glam here and t...

Re: Creating a logrithmic grid?

Thanks! The second convert command wiped out the transparency, but found a quick workaround for that! Commands: $ magick -size 1x50 xc:darkblue -duplicate 39 -scale %[fx:t+1]x50! -bordercolor none -border 5x0 -reverse +append out.png $ convert -background transparent out.png -shear 15x0 outputs.png ...

Re: Creating a logrithmic grid?

using the last style above: http://www.fmwconcepts.com/misc_tests/incremental_grid.png This has been useful, now the people who view this think the lines should be slanted 15 degrees or so. Say each of those lines above are 10 pixels tall, leaving the bottom of the line where it is, the top of each ...

Re: Creating a logrithmic grid?

That last one is Perfect! I just need to swap out black for the right color, and make the white transparent, then should be good to go!

I didn't know there were wizzards about, but should have known. :D

Re: Creating a logrithmic grid?

Thank you very much for these ideas. I love your script site, fmw42!

For some reason, I thought there would be a simple method, it looks like IM 7 will have it though.

Re: Creating a logrithmic grid?

I guess simplified would be starting with 8x8 or 16x8 pixel blocks in a grid, then make the blocks get progressively narrower as the line goes across. Leave a spacing of 2 pixels between each consecutive line. Nightmare to do a mockup in photoshop of my idea, as well as GNUPlot, since I'm unsure how...

Re: Creating a logrithmic grid?

The most recent I saw were the tweet "memes" from that AI bot that went haywire. Not interested in making memes, though, it just looks neat. Using Debian Linux on many systems, mostly AMD64. Haven't figured out transparency with gnuplot, or how to fill in pixels with varying thickness. Samples, it's...

Creating a logrithmic grid?

Greetings all! I've been a user of imagemagick since the mid 90s. Though I haven't delved into the fx function much. I've used it mostly as a command line photoshop/photo retouch system, and not so much as a create system. What I'd like to do is make a "news style" background for text, which starts ...
