Description: Just a simple script to show how to add semi-transparent images and text to an image, or in this case a blank US letter sized paper.... ready to run off reams of copies. This particular example is for Perl. The Programming Republic of Perl stamp is base64encoded into the script.
#!/usr/bin/perl
use warnings;
use strict;
use Image::Magick;
use MIME::Base64;

#Usage: Script.pl base_image 
#my $file = shift or die "need an image $!\n";
#my $image = Image::Magick->new;
#my $rc = $image->Read($file);

my $image = Image::Magick->new;
$image->Set(size=>'612x792');  # US letter 8.5 x 11 inches
my $rc = $image->Read("xc:white");

my $wimage = Image::Magick->new(magick=>'png');
my $stamp = get_stamp();
$wimage->BlobToImage($stamp);
#$wimage->Write('stamp.png'); #if you want to examine it

$rc = $image->Composite(
     gravity => "Center", 
     compose=>'Dissolve',
     image => $wimage,
      opacity => '5%',  #how much transparency
      tile  => 1,  
      );

foreach my $pos qw(North Center South){
$image->Annotate(pointsize => 36,
         fill      => '#00000008', #last 2 digits transparency in hex 
+ff=max
         text      => 'Just Another Perl Hacker',
         gravity   => $pos );
}

$image->Write("$0.png");

exit;
