The template image

If you wish to customize the generated picture, by adding some text (eg: “Wedding of M. and Mme Smith”) or having some decoration, you can use a template image.

The easy way to create this, is to first generate a template with placeholder for the images (based on your configuration so no surprise at the end).

You will have something like this.

Basically, edit this file and add whatever you want wherever you want except within the scare (where the picture will be printed).

Use this file in your config to be used by pimaton as the base image before merging all thumbnails.

Edit your config file, and update the image → print → template value:

image:
    
    print:
        
        template: "/path/to/template.jpg"
