python-pillowHow to rotate text


We can't draw rotated text, but we can create separate image and draw text there. Then rotate that separate image and merge it with our original image:

from PIL import Image, ImageDraw, ImageFont

im = Image.open('/var/www/examples/heroine.png')
text = "I am hero"

tim = Image.new('RGBA', (500,200), (0,0,0,0))
dr = ImageDraw.Draw(tim)
ft = ImageFont.truetype('/var/www/examples/roboto.ttf', 100)
dr.text((0, 0), text, font=ft, fill=(200, 200, 0))

tim = tim.rotate(30,  expand=1)

im.paste(tim, (0,0), tim)
im.show()ctrl + c
PIL

import Pillow package modules

Image.open

open given image with Pillow

I am hero

text to print

Image.new

create new PIL image object

(0,0,0,0)

we create an image with transparent background

ImageDraw.Draw

create drawing object

ImageFont.truetype

create font object, with font and size we're going to use for text

.text(

draws text with given params

.rotate(

rotate given image

30

rotate by 30 degrees

expand=1

expand image if rotated image can't fit into initial size

.paste(

paste image with text on top of loaded image

.show()

displays resulting image
