text list to individual images

Post by imlost123 »

Hi,

Ideally I'd like to take a text file list with thousands of lines of text and turn each line of text into an individual image with a transparent background and white text.
So far all I've managed to do is turn the whole list in to a single image, as for chopping it up it really is beyond me at the moment.

Been bashing my head against a wall trying to figure this out for a few days. Any help gratefully accepted!

What is your IM version and platform/OS. Your request would need scripting and that would be OS dependent (and not formally what this forum is about).

Imagemagick 7.0.4.x is rather old. Perhaps upgrade first and report the full 7.0.x.x. version in the future. Sorry, I am not Windows user and do not know how to script for it. So I cannot help.

Type "help for" at the Windows command line for a loop that reads each line of a text file.

Thanks for not making it too easy for me just to cut and paste, feel like I learned something.
You have no idea of the sense of accomplishment I'm feeling right now! :lol:
