Watermark error with wmpos

Post by miksmith »

Hi

I've tried this command

nconvert -out jpeg -wmfile overlay\GOPR3908.jpg -wmflag bottom-right -o final\atest GOPR3908.jpg

which adds a watermark overlay to an image and saves it in another directory. However no matter what I change for wmflag or use wmpos it *always* places the overlay in the top left corner.

have I done something wrong here??

thanks

mike

Placing the the Watermark position before the Watermark file term seems to solve the problem :D :

Code: Select all

nconvert -wmflag center -wmfile watermark.jpg -o image_wm.jpg image.jpg
If you think that is not entirely intuitive given the help file listing:

Code: Select all

-wmfile file      : Watermark file
-wmpos x y        : Watermark position
-wmflag flag      : Watermark position
       top-left, top-center, top-right
       center-left, center, center-right
       bottom-left, bottom-center, bottom-right
... so do I... :wink:

Pierre: Would it be possible to make NConvert accept either order, or to change the order shown in the help file?
