A special operator to make a image circular with a soft blurry outline. However note that it does not actually use the largest ellipse posible, so you may want to DIY it. This produces a 'linear' distribution rather than a more common Gaussian distribution to the vignette blurring.
For example, here I give a polaroid look to a photo thumbnail. The image is looking up the spiral staircase downwardinside the Arc de Triumph, Paris. It is a very long staircase!.
This operator is very complex, as it adds border as per the " -bordercolor " setting'curls' the paper, and adds a inverse curl to the shadow. The shadow color can be controlled by the " -background " color setting.
As you saw above the plus form of the operator will rotate the result by a random amount.
This operator makes a Index of Photos much more interesting and less static than you would otherwise get. The minus form of the operator lets you control the angle of rotation of the image. That is it will be word wrapped to the width of the photo.
On the other hand the IM command " montage " uses " -label " as it uses the non-word wrapping " label: The transforms use of Rotate and Wave shearing distortions to add a little 'curl' to the photo image has a tendency to produce horizontal lines of fuzziness in text of the image generated.
This is a well known Image Distortion problem see Rotating a Thin Lineand one that can be solved by using a super sampling technique. Basically we generate the polaroid twice as large as what we really want, then we just resize the image to its final normal size.
The reduction in the image size effectively sharpens the resulting image, and more importantly the caption text. However to make this work we not only need a image at least twice the final size, but also we may need to a larger border to the image, and draw the text at twice its normal " -density ".
Do not increase the fonts " -pointsize " as that does not enlarge the text in quite the same way. The same for any other fine detail that may have been present in the original image. The only disadvantage of this is that the shadow of the resulting image will be smaller, and less fuzzy.
For total control of the polaroid transformation, you can do all the steps involved yourself. Oil Painting, blobs of color The " -paint " operator is designed to convert pictures into paintings made by applying thick 'blobs' of paint to a canvas.
The result is a merging of neighbourhood colors into larger single color areas. This effect can be smoothed somewhat by blurring the image slightly before hand, as shown in the last image above.
It is an interesting effect and could be used to make some weird and wonderful background images. For example see its use in Background Examples. While " -paint " is supposed to produce areas of a single solid color, at large radius values, it has a tendency to produce a vertical gradient in some areas.
This is most annoying, and may be a bug. There are alternative to using " -paint ". One is to use "-statistic Mode" instead, which assigns each pixel with the 'predominate color' within the given rectangular neighbourhood, and can produce a nicer result.
Here for example is an 'OpenIntensity' Morphology on the rose. For example what about using a diagonal line brush. Charcoal, artists sketch of a scene The charcoal effect is meant to simulate artist's charcoal sketch of the given image. The " -charcoal " operator is in some respects similar to edge detection transforms used by Computer Vision.
Basically it tries to convert the major borders and edges of object in the image into pencil and charcoal shades. The one argument is supposed to represent the thickness of the edge lines. Technically the " -charcoal " operator is a " -edge " operator with some thresholding applied to a grey-scale conversion of the original image.
Pencil Sketch Transform The " -sketch " operator basically applies a pattern of line strokes to an image to generate what looks like an artistic pencil sketch.
Arguments control the length and angle of the strokes.(MBM) Featured Article. The Professional Services Career Path: A Big Four Employee Perspective What is it like to work on the advisory side of a Big 4 firm?
