Text on Images with PixInsight
« on: 2019 March 16 13:32:02 »
I haven't found anywhere whether PI has the capability to superimpose text on the bottom corner of an image for identification purposes.
Any thoughts?
Thanks, Bob

Hi Bob -

There is a process named Annotation that will superimpose text on the image. You can control the font, font size, font color, and the Opacity of the font. You can place the text anywhere you wish on the image.

Steve,
Thanks! With a program this advanced I just had to think it had to have some kind of text on image feature!

You're welcome Bob, glad to help.

I've gotten quite a bit of help in this forum, especially when I was learning how to calibrate and stack with PI rather than having to rely on DSS. It was a challenging project, but, I'm glad I stuck it out.''

Best of success in you imaging/processing future.

Hi Bob,

There is also the DrawSignature script (Script > Render > DrawSignature), a toy demonstration script that I wrote ages ago. Zbynek Vrastil's Annotation tool is obviously much better.
