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 ...

You dont actually specify whether or not the image is something you have generated yourself in TK, have at hand or not. If you already have this code then you can export the TK applications canvas as EPS and open it in illustrator. All you need to do is call canvas.postscript(). If you want to use TK Simple sample in python 2: #!/usr/bin/python # -*- ...

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 destination ...

It's hidden away but it is possible. 1) File > New > Document Enter the number of pages of your PDF in "Number of Pages". Deselect "Facing Pages" if you want individual pages. If you know the dimensions of your PDF, set that as your document width and height now, otherwise you can edit it later using File > Document Setup. 2) Window > Utilities > Scripts ...

You want to create whatever you want to be linked as a Symbol. Open the Symbols Panel, then select your object and drag it over to the Symbols Panel. Choose a "Graphic" unless you're doing this for Adobe Flash, either Dynamic or Static. Static would make every instance of that symbol exactly the same Dynamic would be like if you had a hat, but you have a ...

Save images as PNG files. Insert them into Word as a Header and/or footer. Save the Word file as a template.

I'll add my method, since it seems to me like it's the simplest. Basically, you: Computationally generate the circles in Python Render them as a simple SVG file Open file in Illustrator Here is the Python script (requires svgwrite and math): """ This script has two purposes: - Simple demonstration of using Python (specifically the svgwrite library) to ...

This can be done with a simple Blend in Illustrator. You can use the Replace Spine command and get the blend to follow a circle. You merely have to cut the circle at one anchor point for the blend to space correctly. Note that I selected the 5 base circles and distributed horizontal spacing so they were all equally spaced before creating the blend. This ...

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 percentage,...

If you don't care about the dots lining up... You can quickly make something similar to your example in Illustrator using a dashed stroke. To draw the evenly spaced rings easily, I'd use the Polar Grid Tool. Then it's just a matter of setting the Stroke on the rings to dashed with gaps that fit your liking: You can of course fine tune each row to ...

If you do care about the dots lining up... Illustrator's distort and transform effect is perfect for this sort of repeating pattern, but in order to get that exact pattern it will require some tweaking. Start with a dotted line (with 11 dots for your example) Add a Transform Effect via Effect > Distort & Transform > Transform... You'll notice ...

Use Inkscape: Create co-centric guide lines and double click the lines to rotate by equal amount (I used 30 degrees). Create a series of co-centric unfilled circles manually setting the width and height, and moving them to the center. Create a filled circle, and copy paste some number of times. Use the "Rows and Columns" tool to spread them out along a row,...

You don't need a script to release all clipping mask in one step, just do: Select->Object->Clipping Mask Edit->Clear But it can also be done via script: app.executeMenuCommand("Clipping Masks menu item"); app.executeMenuCommand("clear"); The same for ungroupping all objects and release all compound paths: app.executeMenuCommand("selectall"); app....

Indesign comes with a script called findchangebylist.jsx. It does exactly what you want, but it's pretty tedious to use. So tedious, that many people have created scripts for this same task. I would recommend checking some of these out: Find Change By Queries My personal favorite. Easy to use. Multi-Find/Change 2.0 ( Indesign and Incopy ) Extension An ...

Yes, the data set exporting is very well tucked away. To export the data sets into pdf's you need to do this: Make a new action where you simply save a pdf document. Then from the corner menu in Actions window, select Batch... You should: Select the action you just made Select source: Data sets and Override action "save" commands. Then press ok. I ...

The option you want to set is Keep within Top/Bottom Column Boundaries in the Anchored Object Option With the anchored object selected go to Object -> Anchored Object -> Options and check Keep within Top/Bottom Column Boundaries This is the behaviour without Keep within Top/Bottom Column Boundaries selected: This is the behaviour with Keep within Top/...

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 ...

Create a character style and set it to "No break". Edit your existing paragraph style, go to the GREP Style tab, choose the character style you created above and type (?<=\s)i\W+ in the "To Text" field. (credits go to @Tobias Kienzler who suggested this)

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 know this is old. I'm working on this right now in a WebGL implementation of wobbly text (whatever). The solution I'm working on goes like this: Get a bitmapped version of the glyph pair (or do it with vectors if you want) For each row of pixels (or arbitrary vertical unit if you go with vectors), check that both glyphs have at least one pixel present For ...

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: 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.

Sorry I forgot I posted here. batch-export is better but i still can't record all actions i wish. Involving Photoshop here is another overkill. I found the best way to export it with this simple script: /** * Remixer: @herkulano (http://www.herkulano.com) * Thanks to: Niels Bosma (niels.bosma@motorola.com) */ var folder = Folder.selectDialog(); var ...

All of the problems you describe are inherent in the underlying structure of an InDesign document. E.g., InDesign can only calculate how to move text out of the way of an anchored object after the point at which is is anchored. (There are reasons for this. It's not nearly as simple as it might seem.) The anchor and the object must be on the same page, so you'...
