Position data at top of each page

How do I position everything to the top of the page rather than the bottom?

-gravity North or NorthWest displays the data off of the page because it uses the bottom left pixel as an anchor. So only -gravity SouthWest works which is the default value. If I type NorthWest it technically displays it correctly west, but places everything out of the top of the page area

"-antialias" and "+antialias" are settings that affect certain operations. You are not using any of those operations, so "-antialias" and "+antialias" will have no effect.

I needed to change geometry to 1566 to prevent it from resizing the image; distorting it. Finally figured it out after reading the page about resizing images distorts them.

For some reason image magick isn't making the paper size Letter but 0.51 inch by 0.66 inch. Any ideas?
Also what's the correct spacing for left/right print margins? -geometry +75+0 ?

Also how do I align the content to the top of the page rather than the bottom. -gravity SouthWest doesn't work and center/south displays nothing before it grabs the png files by the corner instead of the center.

magick montage -tile 1x6 -geometry +0+0 -page Letter -units PixelsPerInch -density 1200x1200 -quality 100 -filter spline -unsharp 0x1 out.pdf

Thanks

On "-page", see http://www.imagemagick.org/script/comma ... s.php#page . "-page Letter" is a synonym for "-page 612x792". If your density is 600 dpi then this isn't much bigger than one square inch.

I'm not sure what you want. Can you supply sample images? Perhaps "montage" doesn't do what you want, and appending might be better.

I am appending about 5 of these to each page. Exporting as a pdf. Each image is the next set of measures. Each image is placed under the previous one. I don't really understand how I incorporate "append" into my command or replace montage with append

Finally got everything working. Had to increase the memory to 5GB for 1200DPI
