USAGE: reflect [-c centercolumn] infile
USAGE: reflect [-h or -help]

-c ... centercolumn ... center column (x coordinate) of input image about
....................... which to reflect horizontally; integer>=0; default
....................... is the image horizontal center

PURPOSE: To split an image, reflect each side and append them to form horizontally symmetric images.

DESCRIPTION: REFLECT splits an image into two parts at the center column. Each side is reflected and append to form left and right symmetric images and also a blended image. The 3 output files will be named from the input image as inname_left.suffix, inname_right.suffix and inname_blend.suffix

ARGUMENTS:

-c centercolumn ... CENTERCOLUMN is the center column (x coordinate) of the input image about which to reflect horizontally. Values are 0<=interger<=imagewidth. The default is the image horizontal center.

CAVEAT: No guarantee that this script will work on all platforms, nor that trapping of inconsistent parameters is complete and foolproof. Use At Your Own Risk.

What the script does is as follows:

  • Splits the image horizontally into two parts
  • Horizontally reflects (mirrors) the left half and appends the two parts and outputs the left image
  • Horizontally reflects (mirrors) the right half and appends the two parts and outputs the right image
  • Blends the left and right images and outputs the blended result

This is equivalent to the following IM commands

  • ww=`convert -ping $tmpA1 -format "%w" info:`
  • hh=`convert -ping $tmpA1 -format "%h" info:`
  • wr=$((ww-ccol))
  • if [ $ccol -le $wr ]; then
    wd=$((2*ccol-1))
    else
    wd=$((2*wr-1))
    fi
  • convert -respect-parenthesis $tmpA1 +repage \
    \( -clone 0 -crop ${ccol}x+0+0 +repage \( +clone -flop -gravity east -chop 1x0 \) \
    +append +write "${outname}_left.$suffix" \) \
    \( -clone 0 -crop ${wr}x+${ccol}+0 +repage \( +clone -flop -gravity west -chop 1x0 \) \
    -reverse +append +write "${outname}_right.$suffix" \) \
    -delete 0 -gravity center -crop ${wd}x+0+0 +repage \
    -define compose:args=50,50 -compose blend -composite \
    "${outname}_blend.$suffix"
