  • *NOTE* ImageMagick only stores the rendered images on their system for 24 hrs. Always transload your results to your homepage account.

    You can either click on the rendered image to get the URL or click on the transloader link below the rendered image and be transported there automatically. If you choose to click on the transloader link the temporary URL of the rendered image will already be entered in at Starblvd.







How to Composite with ImageMagick




  • Put the URL of the image you want to use as the background in the text field where it asks for the URL and hit the view button.











  • On the next page you will see your image. Go to the top of the screen and hit the Composite tab.











  • On the next page fill in the following:

  • URL: enter the URL of the image you want to put on top of the previous image.

  • On the pulldown menu I prefer NORTHWEST

  • Location: if you selected NORTHWEST on the pulldown menu then all you have to do is tell it how far to the right and how far down to move the second image using +'s. For example this would move it to the right 50 and down 100.

    +50+100

  • On the next pulldown select Over

  • Next click where it says Press to (composite) your image or (reset) the form.











  • On the next page you will see your composited image. Go to the top of the screen and click on the Output tab.











  • On the next page fill in the following:

  • Format: put a checkmark next to gif

    If your overlapping image is a still image click on the single file button.
    If the overlapping image is animated click on the multiple images per file button.

  • Storage Type:






  • Click where it says Press to (output) your image or (reset) the form.
