Suggestions for how to emboss my logo and name on my artwork?

Post by cedarsage » 2018-07-08T11:44:56-07:00

I am looking for a simple script by which I can emboss a simple greyscale image of my logo and signature upon artwork that intend to post online, to discourage people from downloading and using my artwork without my permission. My concern about using the emboss filter is that it would emboss my artwork to, I just want to create a 3d effect upon my artwork or a complex brush effect (doesn't have to be emboss, just not a simple pixeled line) with the darkness and lightness of the logo/sig image.

I guess I wouldn't mind dropping the logo if the text of a font could be embossed in a single layer, I imagine in this case I would need to specify a font, I could find one, don't want it to be my actual signature

but if I need to merge two layers, might as well include the logo too.

I'm pretty newb, and rusty.

Thanks.

Please always provide your imagemagick version and platform, since syntax may vary. Also can you provide an example of the effect you want and your input image and logo. You can upload images to any free hosting service and put the URLs here.

For novices, see

Here is one type of example from my bash unix shell scripts http://www.fmwconcepts.com/imagemagick/ ... /index.php. See my web site at my link below for other effects.
