USAGE: spots [-s size] [-t type] [-p pad] [-b bgcolor] [-e edge] [-E ecolor] [-B brightness] [-C Contrast] infile [spotfile] outfile
USAGE: spots [-help]

-s .... size .......... spot size expressed as WxH in pixels; default=5x5
-t .... type .......... type of spot shape; choices are: circle (or c),
....................... square (or s), or diamond (or d); default=circle
-p .... pad ........... padding or border around spot cell in pixels on
....................... each side; integer>=0; default=1
-b .... bgcolor ....... background color to apply to image where spot
....................... does not cover; any valid IM color; default=black
-e .... edge .......... edge thickness accent around spot shape;
....................... integer>=0; default=0
-E .... ecolor ........ color of accent edge around spot shape;
....................... any valid IM color; default=gray
-B .... brightness .... percent change in brightness of spots;
....................... integer; default=0
-C .... contrast ...... percent change in contrast of spots;
....................... integer; default=0

PURPOSE: Converts the image into a series of uniform-colored spots.

DESCRIPTION: SPOTS converts the image into a series of uniform-colored spots. The shape of spots allowed are: circle (ellipse), square (rectangle) or diamond. The spot size may be adjusted. A colored edge may also be placed around each spot. An optional spotfile may be provided to define some other shape than those built-in.

ARGUMENTS:

-s size ... SIZE is the WxH dimensions of the spot cell. Values are a pair of positive integers separated by an x. The default=5x5. If only one value is provided, it will be used for both. This parameter is ignored if a spotfile is provided.

-t type ... TYPE is the type of spot shape. The choices are: circle (or c), square (or s), diamond (or d). These may be asymmetric as ellipses or rectangles as controlled by the size parameters. This parameter is ignored if a spotfile is provided.

-p pad ... PAD is the border around the spot cell. Values are integers>=0. The default=1.

-b bgcolor ... BGCOLOR is the color to apply to the image between the spots. Any valid IM color is allowed. The default=black.

-e edge ... EDGE is the thickness of the optional edge hightlight around the spot shape. Values are integers>=0. The default=0.

-E ecolor ... ECOLOR is the color of the edge highlight. Any valid IM color is allowed. The default=gray.

-B brightness ... BRIGHTNESS is the percent change in brightness of the spot colors. Values are integers. The default=0

-C contrast ... CONTRAST is the percent change in contrast of the spot colors. Values are integers. The default=0

The spotfile must be a binary mask with white for the shape and black for the background and no alpha channel.

REQUIREMENTS: IM 6.3.6-1 or higher due to the use of -define distort:viewport=WxH+X+Y with -distort SRT.

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.

roundrectangle spotfile create as follows:

convert -size 20x10 xc:black \
+antialias -fill white \
-draw "roundrectangle 0,0 19,9 5,3" \
-alpha off -bordercolor black -border 1 \
roundrect_spotfile.png


What the script does is as follows:

  • Creates a spotfile for either a circle, square or diamond shape
    where the spot is white on a black background
  • Puts a black border around the spot cell
  • Compututes the cell size
  • Scales the image down and then back up to form uniform cells of color
  • Puts the tiled spotfile into the alpha channel of the blocked out image
  • Flattens the image over some background color

This is equivalent to the following IM commands for the case where no spotfile is provided no border is used.

  • ww=`convert $infile -ping -format "%w" info:`
  • hh=`convert $infile -ping -format "%h" info:`
  • sw=`echo $size | cut -dx -f1`
  • sh=`echo $size | cut -dx -f2`

  • scy=`convert xc: -format "%[fx:($sh-1)/2]" info:`
  • lx=$((sw-1))
  • ly=$((sh-1))
  • pw=$((sw+2*pad))
  • ph=$((sh+2*pad))
  • if [ "$type" = "circle" ]; then

    +antialias -fill white -draw "ellipse $scx,$scy $scx,$scy 0,360" -alpha off \
