Re: verticle text

This may get a little long, but here goes. I settled on using the annotate. It works how I want it to. As a test I did: convert -size 100x200 xc:white -fill black -draw "50,50 70,50" -fill blue -annotate 270x270+25+50 "test text" This work great, the anchor point is the beginning of the text, but yo...

I was just wondering how to put text on an image at any angle using the draw command or other command. Like with a line you use sta...

.fon font files don't seem to work.

I have been trying to understand the font usage. If th font file is a ttf, it works fine referencing the file, but if the file is a .fon file, it does not work. Should this work? I am on a windows system.

Thanks, Troy

Re: What color codes work with what?

Thanks, that helps for the a options. Any idea why I am getting the error on the wash example when using the #(hex colors)? Also, even using the rbga, I am still not getting any transparency when doing the wash/shadow example. Is this just because of the functionality?
