Re: Unicode symbol to image

It's amazing how IM can be adapted to basically any need. The only thing that remains: how it would be for more than one regions? For example, '8', or the ball symbol in the second example. Also, it would be great to have the script commented, as to understand how the whole process is implemented. (...

Re: Unicode symbol to image

You're absolutely right, implementing "inside", that's the point.
I'm trying to test it, but am not familiar with BAT, could you please also provide a Linux version?

Re: Unicode symbol to image

That answers the second part of the question: inner areas cannot be filled automatically with IM. As for the first question, the `-fill` command seems to be the key here.

Re: Unicode symbol to image

It is not about using fonts in the usual way, but to provide a collection of characters and icons that can be transformed into graphic files, to be used in games, for example.

Unicode symbol to image

This is about transforming any symbol to an image, so the rich catalog of numbers, characters and icons is available in a graphic format. The `convert` command does the job nicely, like this: convert -size 50x50 xc:transparent -pointsize 30 -annotate +10+33 "O" output.png Now, this generates a black...
