Nconvert -addtext

Post by wouter »

Is use of addtext already possible with nconvert? Which parameters can be used? In which sequence should the info about text position, font, textcolor, backgroundcolor, content be put?

(I want something like: -addtext <IPTC:Caption> bottom-left textcolor 0 0 0 textbgcolor 255 255 255 font arial narrow 8)

Will it be possible in the future to merge a series of imagefiles with corresponding textfiles like merging filename##.jpg with filename##.txt using the -addtext parameter?

With -text option you can't use template for IPTC/EXIF, and it's :
-text TEXT -text_font arial 8 -textcolor 0 0 0 -textbgcolor 255 255 255

Hello !

I had many problems with a WSH-Script ( *.vbs ) and the text-parameters of nconvert.

Parts of the script:
.
.
.
Pfadvorgabe = "C:\pictures\"
nconvert = "C:\Programme\XnView\nconvert"
nconvertparam1 = "-resize 80% 80% -q 90 -text"
nconvertparam2 = "-text_color 255 255 255 -text_back 0 0 0 -text_font Arial 80 -text_flag top-left -text_pos 50 50 -out jpeg -o
.
.
.
WSHShell.Run nconvert & " " & nconvertparam1 & " " & Folder1 & " " & nconvertparam2 & " " & Pfadvorgabe & Datei(i) & " " & Pfad & "\" & Datei(i)
.
.
.


the result for nconvert is:
C:\Programme\XnView\nconvert -resize 80% 80% -q 90 -text_font Arial 80 -text "Rose - August 2005" -text_color 255 255 255 -text_back 0 0 0 -text_flag top-left -text_pos 50 50 -out jpeg -o C:\pictures\Blüten(1).jpg C:\pictures\Flowers\Blüten(1).jpg


I do'nt understand: i changed many parameters( textcolor, textbackroundcolor , ...) but the font is every time very small , black and on a transparent backround . What can i do or who can help ?

Ok, it's a little problem, you must put -text after all text parameters, so :
C:\Programme\XnView\nconvert -resize 80% 80% -q 90 -text_font Arial 80 -text_color 255 255 255 -text_back 0 0 0 -text_flag top-left -text_pos 50 50 -text "Rose - August 2005" -out jpeg -o C:\pictures\Blüten(1).jpg C:\pictures\Flowers\Blüten(1).jpg
