Well that is the problem "composite" only has -geometry as a setting
it is not applied until the very end. use resize then use -geometry to place
the result.

You want both images rotated? or just the image that will be overlayed?

Either way I recomend you go to the "convert" command and use -composite
there, performing the rotations as needed.

Code: Select all

convert  background.img   \( overlay.img -rotate 3 \) -geometry -geometry 1596x1119+552+396 -composite  result.img
