Add copyright symbol © to image

Post by janbo1982 »

Hello all,

how could we put © symbol into photos with xnconvert. This does not work with Arial or Verdana. It only creates ®

-rmeta -overwrite -autocrop 0 255 255 255 -ratio -rtype lanczos -rflag decr -resize 1900 900 -text_font arial 30 -text_color 0 0 255 -text_back 192 192 192 -text_flag top-left -text_pos 0 0 -text_rotation 0 -text "© company name" -o %myFile% %1

Thanks for your help!

© company name works for me in XnConvert [the GUI software], I haven't tested in NConvert [the command line application]...

Possibly a bug in NConvert, or some kind of localisation issue, if that could be possible??

Could you test with XnConvert?

Thanks for your prompt answer, cday!

It works with XNconvert GUI Software. Our programmer is using Nconvert command line application.

It makes from "©" this "-®"?

For me, using XnConvert, the © symbol is written correctly...

I may, reluctantly, boot into Windows so that I can test in NConvert... :wink:

I have now tested your NConvert code in Windows and can confirm that © is also written incorrectly in my test... :(

I don't know whether this is a bug in NConvert, or could be due to some technical issue related to code pages or whatever...

I can now confirm that many text symbols entered in my Windows Notepad-created code reproduce incorrectly when the code is run at the Windows command line.

This is really not my subject, but it looks like a coding issue possibly introduced by Windows cmd.exe and NConvert reading code using different coding, so that when a code value is different an incorrect symbol is displayed.

Could someone please confirm that, or correct any details, and suggest a simple way of creating code that reproduces text symbols correctly when the code is run in NConvert :?:
