just a quick recipe
convert -size 480x85 xc:transparent -font DemonCubicBlockFontShade -pointsize 72 -draw "text 25,55 'datarama 0.3'" -channel RGBA -gaussian 0x6 -fill darkred -stroke magenta -draw "text 25,60 'datarama 0.3'" datarama.png
It is an ImageMagick recipe. I will add more when I am not so pressed for time..
Image Magick Install notes:
Installing Image Magick using macports was not straight forward, I had to also install ghostscript and add the perl bindings.
# sudo port install ImageMagick +perl
# sudo port install GhostScript
I was still getting a ton of font errors until I found this tutorial http://www.gadflymind.com/2008/03/14/using-os-x-fonts-in-imagemagick/
The font I used can be downloaded here http://www.fontspace.com/category/3D,cubes
I prefer apt-get but since I'm on a mac lappy today it had to be done this way. I still love ImageMagick.
