Re: Testing for image transparency

Thanks very much indeed.
Yes, definitely would have been out of date as I harvested that from a 2008 post on this board.

Testing for image transparency

I'm using a Python library that creates pngs, but once in a blue moon, generates a set of pngs that are essentially just transparent. I have no idea why and it's a rare enough event not to want to bother investigating. The images are intended for social media, and I'd like to be able to test for tra...

Re: Still struggling with composites and transparency

Ah that's perfect!
I'll be resizing everything on the fly anyway (it's for another bot to generate 'random' postcard images).
One day this stuff will have sunk in enough that I don't have to ask, but I expect the planet will have burned to a crisp by then anyway.

thanks so much.

Re: Still struggling with composites and transparency

I've just downloaded them from imagebin to check, and they are pngs: identify sees them as pngs, and the first three bytes of each are "PNG"

Maybe there's something your browser is doing?

Re: little help : convert .bat to bash script

There are probably half a dozen different ways to do what you want in bash, and it's not entirely clear from your post what all the details of your situation are. If you are going to be working in bash in the future, you need to learn it properly. It is a much more powerful and flexible shell than W...

Re: Intermittent error: "STUFF" ...

Does it appear in the file name or path to the file? What happens afterwards? Does it create an output? Can you find the file it is failing on and if you run it again does it fail? Do you have enough space in your /tmp file or whatever file is being used by MAGICK_TEMPORARY_PATH? in order: No, it a...

Re: Best way to detect blank transparent image

I would simply recommend convert image -channel a -separate -scale 1x1! -format "[fx:mean]\n" info: If it is full transparency, you get 0 and fully opaque you get 1 and partially transparent is some value in-between. Perfect ready-made answer to a problem I just tripped over today ... with the tiny...

Re: [SOLVED]: IM6, Pango, creating text overlays - ADDENDUM

ADDENDUM Just a quick note to say that I recently made a small mod to the script that has made it work even better for my purposes. By design, the text is always positioned in (roughly) the top one-third of the image, but for some images, the text tone (lighter or darker) was not quite right - for ...

Re: IM6, Pango, creating text overlays

Ah thank you both! I've been using IM for years and years, but just for odds and bits of trimming, cropping and montaging, and have never really wanted or needed to explore it further. @snigbo your script works beautifully, it'll probably be exactly what I use. The only question that pops up for me ...
