PAID: Need help batch combining/overlaying different folders of images

Post by angeleyes » 2015-11-25T02:55:42-07:00

Hi,

I am new to ImageMagick and want to create new images by combining multiple images in separate folders.

One folder contains icons, the other glyphs that will be overlaid in the top right corner.

Here is a simple visual example of what I want to achieve:

Image

I have provided a couple of icons and some of the glyphs if you need them to test your script: https://www.creativefreedom.co.uk/work/ ... s-test.zip


Example:

'\icons48\Bar_Graph_48x48.png' needs to be combined with '\glyphs24\Open_24x24.png', 'Create_24x24.png', 'Approve_24x24.png'...

to make new files called '\combined48\Open_Bar_Graph_48x48.png', '\combined48\Create_Bar_Graph_48x48.png', '\combined48\Approve_Bar_Graph_48x48.png'

The above is the most basic script I need but if it is possible I would like to go further.

Each of my icons and glyphs have 4 sizes (icons - 48, 32, 24, 16px, glyphs - 24, 16, 8, 4px) , so I would like to be able to combine them all.

Finally I would like to convert each collection of sizes into a Windows 7 Compliant ICO file.

e.g. containing all 4 sizes, Open_Bar_Graph_48x48.png, Open_Bar_Graph_32x32.png, Open_Bar_Graph_24x42.png, Open_Bar_Graph_16x16.png, into Open_Bar_Graph.ico

All images are 32bit png and need to retain their transparency in the final files.

Thanks!

Adam

You should specify your operating system and version of ImageMagick. Are you aware that this part of the forum is for paid requests only? We can move your topic if that is not the case.

OS is Windows 8.1 and IM version is 6.9.2-6 x64.

Am happy to pay a reasonable fee for the script, thank you :)

Would a moderator be kind enough to add the 'PAID:' prefix to my thread please?

I just want to make it clear that I am happy to pay for the service.

Thank you,

Adam

I have changed your topic title, you might get a better response if you include some example files.

I think I have created a script that does what you want. You can find it and the output in the following folder: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/0jtlo0b5218x ... 0PUWa?dl=0. I had to create a 32x32 icon and a 16x16 glyph to test if the script works. Feel free to send me a PM if you need more help and instead of a payment you could pick something from my amazon wish list: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/registry/wis ... TE3001VQZE

Hi,

It seems to work great, you just saved me manually creating over 6500 files, and yes I had started doing that! :D

You have a gift on its way, let me know if it is suitable recompense, I don't want to be seen as a tight-arse!

Thanks,

Adam

P.S. I may have some questions/mods so ok if I come back to you?

Ok, next question script. :)

I would like to make HTML5 contact sheets for my website but with text names for the icons (based on filename) and alt tags. So one contact sheet per icon family (I think it would be easier to make this work on folders than filenames).

Results would look pretty much like this:

Image

I don't even know if Image Magick can do html output but wanted to ask. if it can I can provide precise font and spacing etc.

Thanks.

Adam

Thanks for the gift and that is fair for the time that was spent on this script. ImageMagick cannot create HTML output but the html output could be scripted. But you really want to use some other tools like powershell then to script this. You could send me a PM so we can continue this conversation by e-mail.
