Re: adding text to JPEGs, in bulk



Hi,

Thanks to all who pointed out ways to do this, this is what I'm
trialling at the moment, as a combination of a few of the hints:

for file in *
do
  number=$(echo $file | cut -b6-8)
  echo doing photo $number
  convert -fill red -font Bookman-DemiItalic -pointsize 330 -draw "text 300,1000 photo-$number" $file ../proofs/$file
done

That makes modified versions in a different directory, and works rather
nicely.  Now I just wish I had faster PC, they're big files to play
with.  ;-)  

I'll probably have to go back and modify the text placement for a few of
them, if it's appeared smack across someone's face, but it takes care of
the bulk of the photos without lots of work.
