Well the images are produced as a result of simulations. They are created directly from raw data. When the image gets created I want to print some "characteristics" in a corner. (Many moons ago there was something called Borland C, and that had a function settext (or something like that). You'd choose a font, a location and basically put text on the screen. I want something similar. if it puts the text in a bitmapped buffer than that's fine I (probably) can get that on the Tiff image when it's created.
If I have to convert images and use all kinds of tools and different libraries the "thing" probably becomes to big to conveniently run on a cluster.
libgd may help. http://www.libgd.org/Main_Page
Especially as we just introduced TIFF support :)
The read support is in CVS, write support should follow shortly. Images directories is planed too, but we first need to add images collection support to libgd.
Let me know if you meet any problem using this code,
