Modify / Update a JPEG image programmatically to add a text

Post by srivatsahg » 2015-08-26T06:38:13-07:00

Hi
I was wondering if ImageMagick library would allow me to open a JPEG image on the fly and add a text field (for ex: Software version) Basically I should be able to send the software version to this library. And this image based library should modify/add a text to the image at a certain pixel position and be able to save the resulting image.

Thanks
Srivatsa

What do you mean by on the fly?

Imagemagick can open an image from disk, add text either in the image or below the image and save it to a disk again. There are many ways to add text to an image. See
