I need to put some text over a PNG image in Python, I need to put another image too over the first one.
So I'll have a base image (the same for every image created), a logo to put over it in the upper left corner, and a text all over the image (non-specific font, I just need to set the font size).
Could I use PIL, or another Library?
I searched over StackOverflow and Google too, but I could not find tips on how to do this.
PIL can do it:
import PIL from PIL import ImageFont from PIL import Image from PIL import ImageDraw font = ImageFont.truetype("/usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSans.ttf", 25) img = Image.new("RGBA", (200,200), (120,20,20)) draw = ImageDraw.Draw(img) draw.text((0,0), "This is a test", (255,255,0), font=font) draw = ImageDraw.Draw(img) img.save("a_test.png")
The only error that can occur is not to find the font. In this case you must change the code line:
font = ImageFont.truetype("/usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSans.ttf",25)
