Varying text in certificate
Hello, I just registered here to ask you about how to perform a certain action in GIMP which I cannot find information on Google (and I don't even know whether it's possible or not).

I'm in process of making a bulk of certificates to give to a group of people who participated in a contest. I have the design but I have to create over 200 different certificates (because they are personalized for every person). Each certificate should contain the name of the person to whom is adressed.

Obviously I could do it one by one but I'm looking for a quicker way to do it. I have the names database in txt format, sql format, xml format, whatever...

thank you in advance.

RE: Varying text in certificate
ImageMagick can overlay text over an image (with a specified font), so it wouldn't be too hard to make a shell script (or .BAT) that reads the names and creates each image using the background image you have.
