PHP Imagick extension arch font into image merge

Post by JainJude » 2019-07-15T02:31:42-07:00

How would I do the following through using the PHP API for imagemagick?
I need to annotate a image containing a label with arched font that is retrieved from a $_GET['name'] variable, so that everyone would get a image with different text based on their urls containing their names.
I know how to annotate imagery with text already but I don't know how to arch the text prior to inserting it into the image so it would fit perfectly into the label as below
I know there is a waveImage function but that doesn't apply to the front prior to the merge however.
Thank You
