Greetings, all.

I wish to annotate an existing bitonal TIFF with text, under Unix.

I'm prepared to merge TIFFs made from text with existing images, but I'd certainly welcome any knowledge of a tool that is intended for annotation.

Are there alternatives to netpbm tools for rendering text as a TIFF graphic? I need multi-line, multi-font capabilities and some scalability or a reasonable selection of sizes; and it would be nice if I could just state the resolution I want in the target image. Proportional and exotic fonts are not required.

Thanks for any advice.
