in reply to Image Magick convert as Perl

You're looking for the Annotate() method instead of Draw ...
my $err = $image->Annotate( pointsize => 200, text => 'hello world', x => 700, y => 650, stroke => '#ff0000', fill => '#90ff40', font => '@ARIAL.TTF', # for ttf, it's at-sign then the path to the +.ttf file .. # grabbing these .ttf's from a windows box is + fine );
