Writing Lettering on Directory Sign

Post by AnnaLipscomb » 2019-05-25T01:36:39-07:00

Looking for recommendations of filters to be able to add a business name to a directory sign like the one below.

I want to add a name to the bottom slot on that sign.

I understand the basics of creating and positioning text, but need it to look realistic.

Something like this, Windows BAT syntax:

Code: Select all

%IMG7%magick ^
  -pointsize 65 ^
  -background None ^
  label:"snibgo, inc" ^
  -gravity West ^
  -extent 1000x100 ^
  +distort perspective ^
0,0,185,727,^
0,99,185,783,^
999,0,470,671,^
999,99,470,716 ^
  Directory-10-slats-side.jpg ^
  +swap ^
  -compose Over -layers merge ^

You will need to fiddle with the font and pointsize, etc.

That's incredible, thank you. Yes I see that choosing the right font may be the most time consuming part.
