You need the full path to texteffect something like username/public_html/folder_script_in/texteffect
texteffect needs CHMOD to 777

you must also remove the "convert" when calling a script

exec("fullpathto/texteffect -t 'SOME ARCTOP TEXT' -s outline -e arc-top -a 60 -f Arial -p 48 -c skyblue -b white -o black -l 1 -u lightpink gamma.png");
