Add shadow text with API

Post by jlacard »


I successfully added shadow to image with C MagickCore API but I can't find any solution to add text with shadow on a background image.

Can anyone help me ?

Once you have added the shadow to the text you can THEN overlay it on a background image. You can not generate the shadow for text that is already on the background without first some how seperating the two.
