Use imagemagick: Imagemagick's own watermarking tutorial. Watermarking a single image looks like convert logo.jpg -font Arial -pointsize 20 \ -draw "gravity south \ fill black text 0,12 'Copyright' \ fill white text 1,11 'Copyright' " \ wmark_text_drawn.jpg For dealing with multiple images, see How to ...

Yes, in Photoshop you could batch process the images in a folder using an action. Simply: Open the image Open the "Actions" panel and hit "Create new action". Name the action and hit "Ok" You should now be in record. Most anything you do will be logged in the action as a step until you hit the "Stop" button in your actions toolbar menu. Create your ...

There is a Gimp script that is specifically designed to add watermarks: Batch Image Watermark Script. It need to be run through the command line, but it is quite straightforward: Download the script Save the downloaded file to your GIMP install followed by \share\gimp\2.0\scripts. For Windows users Start -> Run… -> Cmd (hit OK) Type cd followed by ...

Assuming there isn't a reason why it has to be the Google-copyrighted maps you use, I'd use OpenStreetMap for this (the open source wikipedia-style Google Maps alternative). They're virtually identical but their license (Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike) explicitly allows this sort of thing including for commercial work, so long as they're credited ...

ImageMagick answers have pretty much already been given at this point, but I wanted to give a little more detailed answer, so that everyone should be able to use it. Example with dummy paths: Which you will have to replace. ( On a mac and windows you can drag a file or folder to terminal window, which will convert into a path ) Make sure the ...

I found this pretty useful technique using the "actions" panel to autosave. http://vector.tutsplus.com/tutorials/scripting/autosave-in-adobe-illustrator-using-the-actions-palette/ In case that link ever goes down, the basic idea is to create an action set 'Autosave' containing two actions, which each trigger each other, creating an infinite loop. Then, ...

I'd probably use ImageMagick. There is a feature available to modify the hue, but it's percentage based instead of degrees. Hue Modulation Rotates the colors of the image, in a cyclic manner. To achieve this the Hue value given produces a 'modulus addition', rather than a multiplication. However be warned that the hue is rotated using a ...

Styled Maps Wizard ( link ) does the job. It does have a pretty good instructions that show up when you open up the website. Those instructions can be accessed at any point with the help button at the bottom of Map style panel ( shown in the image below ). Beloware the styles I used to create the static map on the right and in this link.

Not a complete solution, but this might help someone who's come here from Google. If you save with the Save for Web dialog File > Save for Web you can re-size during the saving process, the options are on the right hand side under Image Size. I do this quite often when I need a couple of different sizes for an image, although as the other responses ...

You can try Object > Path > Simplify and adjust the Curve Precision and Angle Threshold settings to perhaps get a curve. There's no straightforward method, which I'm aware of, other than this.

ExtendScript is sort of a blanket term; it's not a real programming language per se. It refers to the ability of a user to create scripts in his or her choice of AppleScript, JavaScript, or VBScript. Adobe provides a program to make scripts called ExtendScript Toolkit, which was most likely bundled with your install of Photoshop. On my computer it's in ...

Yes! It's called GREP styles, and you'll find it under paragraph styles. It allows you to enter a "regular expression" ( code-based super powerful advanced search), then, it applies a character style of your choice to anything that matches those criteria, instantly and automatically. If you edit text so a snippet no longer ...

Using a bash script To do this from the command line, you could use a utility called Gifsicle. There is no built in method to delete every other frame, so you'll need to get your hands dirty with some scripting. Here is a quick script I made to do just a single GIF: #!/bin/bash # This script will take an animated GIF and delete every other frame # Accepts ...

Create a new layer, and execute the following code as a script. It will create a new layer style with 0% fill and the new gradient as an overlay. The for-loop towards the bottom creates a 21-stop gradient in the foreground color. Every other stop alternates between opaque and transparent. You can then save the gradient as a preset within the Layer Styles ...

As I write code a lot too, I know your pain with this task. Luckily there are dozens of Sprite Generators out there. I don't even save the link, as you always find a fitting one soon. The above linked generator takes a ZIP file. Luckily they don't only give you the resulting sprite image/sprite, but write the CSS for you as well. Sidenote/Hint: Pay ...

As of CS6, no there is not an auto save feature in Adobe Illustrator.

As others have already pointed out, these are called "word clouds". Word clouds are essentially visual frequency tables of words, where the font size of the word is determined by the word frequency. Thus, to create the graphic, you first need a corpus (for example, a speech made by someone, a text file of all your blog posts, a data dump of all of your ...

I'm not sure that an action is necessarily the best option for you. A script could do something like this fairly easily. This should give you some useful pointers as far as basic scripting goes.. Basically, the script has to do a few things. First, get the layer dimensions and save them as a variable. Then, make a new text layer, and use the variables as ...

I'd create a small web page and then take a screen grab. You'll end up with a bitmap image you can place on a layer. From there you can sample the colours and use them in your design. If your list looks something like this: 0 0 0 0 0 255 0 255 0 255 0 0 Some clever find/replacing should get you what's needed to create a web page. Depending on the exact ...

Yes: What you want to explore is ImageMagick, an extremely powerful tool for image manipulation. It is based on command line, but in short: you have a folder (or folders containing folders containing folders etc), and one command on command line will generate all your images with watermarks, in a folder structure of your choice.

If you're on mac, you can make an applescript that does this but it's kind of a pain in the butt. Here's a link to a similar one written for photoshop. You can probably tinker with it a bit if your up to the challenge to save yourself some headaches. http://www.ps-scripts.com/bb/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1064

In your case I would have maybe used GREP styles shown on the image below. Here ~h stands for End Nested Style Here character which serves as a style divider (visible in special characters mode as a backslash). If you feel more comfortable with any other character feel free to replace all the ~h-s with anything you like from the drop-down menu. The ...

There's also the Smooth tool if you prefer a more hands-on approach. Rub it over a selected path, and it smooths it where you rub. If it doesn't smooth enough, keep rubbing. From this tutorial: Double-click the tool icon to set how closely the smoothed line sticks to the original (fidelity) and how strong the smoothing is each time (smoothness). A ...

NOTE: This answer was posted before there was a command line/open source requirement, but I'm leaving it up as it may help someone else in the future Using Photoshop This is not an open source or command line solution, but you can do this with Photoshop: File ▸ Import ▸ Video Frames to Layers... "Limit To Every __ Frames" will do the trick for ...

Using Illustrator Step 1: The circles The "concentric rings" shape is easily created with the Polar Grid Tool. Enable the tool, and Click anywhere in the document to bring up the tool's options. I'm using the following values: 5 Concentric Dividers will create 6 evenly spaced circles for us: Now, for the gradient part. This is easier in recent ...

I'll take a shot. There's nothing unique about the colors you displayed-- they are similar in that they all fall in a small range of both saturation and brightness, but there isn't similar tone or hue to them and they're not under any specific color harmony. (that I'm aware of at least) As a thought experiment I'm going to take the same colors you provided ...

Yes, you can use Object > Rows and Columns... to distribute objects into... rows and columns. Just set the spacings to zero, and the number of rows to 1. The number of columns will be calculated automatically from the number of selected objects.

I would do it like this: CSS + HTML The icon as background image The text as normal HTML-text
