Multi colored text.. font metrics?

Hi,

I'm trying to add multicolored text (ie. each letter a different color) to an image, I'm using the command line tools.

How would I do this?

I'd Image I'd have to draw out each letter of the text indivually, but how do I get the spacing to do that properly, programmatically?

I believe you use a negative number on implode to get an explode.

Sorry, this was causing me a problem for all the fonts (some looked much worse than others) I don't have standard fonts installed to test with.

This one also looked real bad:

Code: Select all

Convert was installed from ImageMagick-6.2.6-3.x86_64.rpm

Well, I'd love use PNG, but IE doesn't seem to support transparency in PNG files, so, I have to use GIF. in 6.2.5, the -fuzz 50% works great, and it looks much better! however, in 6.2.6, the fuzz option does nothing.. am I stuck having to use 6.2.5? here's an update with fuzz in 6.2.5: http://72.36....

Fonts, Aliasing, Transparency 6.2.5 vs 6.2.6

I updated IM to 6.2.6 and noticed a weird problem when drawing text on a transparent background. Example in 6.2.5: http://72.36.128.218/test5.gif Example in 6.2.6: http://72.36.128.218/test2.gif On both of these, I start with a transparent gif, then draw the font on it w/ black as the fill color.

There are a couple of configurations in PHP that stop exec from running. Permissions to write in the directly is very common. make a directly called ouput chmod it to 777 and see if you can get your script to output into that. Try other commands, like 'touch test.gif' to make sure you can write file...

Oh, wow, I missed the one example that was perfect for what I'm doing. Color Lookup Tables with small LUT worked real well for cutout. For the newsprint effect, the posterize doesn't make the droplets. here's an example of what I'm looking for: http://www.europe.redhat.com/documentation/rhl9/rhl-gsg...

More effects.. Cutout filter and newprint.. how to?

I'm using the command line tools, and I'm trying to do some more cool effects. I looked all over anthony's examples and couldn't find them. 1. Cutout filter (not crop, but the color reduction and image simplification filter) It makes the images look more cartoony, stylized. 2. Newsprint. like comic ...
