MAN Solaris - montage (1)



montage - create a composite image by combining several separate images. The images are tiled on the composite image optionall adorned with a border, frame, image name, and more.




montage input-file [options] output-file


The montage program is a member of the ImageMagick(1) suite of tools. Use it to create a composite image by combining several separate images. The images are tiled on the composite image optionally adorned with a border, frame, image name, and more.

Image Operators:
annotate geometry text
annotate the image with text

Image Sequence Operators:

In addition to those listed above, you can specify these standard X resources as command line options: -background, -bordercolor, -borderwidth, -font, -mattecolor, or -title.

By default, the image format of ‘file’ is determined by its magic number. To specify a particular image format, precede the filename with an image format name and a colon (i.e. ps:image) or specify the image type as the filename suffix (i.e. Specify ’file’ as ’-’ for standard input or output.
