Scripting Function - OverlayImage

The function overlays a specified image onto each image. The location of the image overlay is specified by x and y coordinates.



OverlayImage overlayimagefile As StringValueFileNameExisting, transparencymethod As OverlayTransparencyMethod, transparentcolor As ArgbColorValue, x As IntegerValueGreaterEqualZero, y As IntegerValueGreaterEqualZero, transparencyPercentage As IntegerValuePercentage



overlayimagefile - the full path of the image file that you would like to overlay onto each image

transparencymethod - the overlay transparency method used during the overlay operation

transparentcolor - the color in the overlay image that will be made transparent during the overlay operation. Note if you have chosen to use ExistingImageTransparency for the transparencymethod parameter then this color parameter will not be used, but you specify it anyway!

x - the x coordinate where the top left corner of the overlay image should be positioned

y - the y coordinate where the top left corner of the overlay image should be positioned

transparencyPercentage - Optional Parameter - Specifies the overall transparency (in percent) of the overlay image (defaults to 0 if not specified).



The following example overlays an image file onto each image. The overlay image file already has an existing transparent layer which we want to use so we set the transparencymethod parameter to ExistingImageTransparency, the top left corner of the overlay image is positioned 50 pixels from the left edge and 80 pixels from the top edge of the images:

OverlayImage "c:\temp\image34.gif", ExistingImageTransparency, Argb(0, 0, 0, 0), 50, 80
