How to apply width on image generated by fred texteffect script. I am trying with [-S size] but it is not working. Can anyone help me

Code: Select all

  exec("bash ./ -t 'SOME PLAIN TEXT' -s plain -e normal -f Arial -p 48 -S 400 -c royalblue -b white -x 0 text.png", $out,$returnval);
And how to apply textalign (left, right and center) on multiline text?

texteffect is not designed to do multiple lines though it may work if you put in line feeds at the appropriate places. It uses label: and not caption: It also has no alignment argument since it will only produce approximately the width or height desired. It trims the image so that effectively it is centered and trimmed. IM cannot produce an exact size. It gets as close as it can for the dimensions and point size. Thus I trim the image to remove the execess that IM leaves.

To specify an approximate width with the -S argument, read the instructions. It says it must include and "x" such as -S 400x for width or -S x400 for height.

This works fine for me.

I am not sure what script you are running since its name is What modifications have you made?

texteffect -t 'SOME PLAIN TEXT' -s plain -e normal -f Arial -p 48 -S 400x -c royalblue -b white -x 0 text.png

The resulting image is 384 x 33
