( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I'd like to be able to perform the same action as the following convert.exe command line in Perl

convert.exe -pointsize 200 -stroke #ff0000 -fill #808040 -draw "text 8 +00,650 'Hello world'" -identify "x.JPG" xb.jpg

The following code runs without warnings and does generate xb.jpg, but without the 'Hello world' text:

use strict; use warnings; use Image::Magick; my $image = Image::Magick->new (); $image->ReadImage( 'x.JPG' ); my $err = $image->Draw ( pointsize=>200, stroke=>"#ff0000", fill=>"#90ff40", x=>700, y=>650, primitive=>"text 'hello world'" ); print $err if $err; $image->Write( 'xb.jpg' );

What I would really like to be able to do is generate the text with about 50% transperancy, but just generating the text in the output image would be a very good start.

Perl is Huffman encoded by design.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
