Action Text


The text which will be written on the image. If you want to put a logo on images, use the watermark action instead.

Horizontal Offset

If you give a positive offset it is taken from left, a negative for right.

Vertical Offset

If you give a positive offset it is taken from top, a negative for bottom.


You need to select a filename of a OpenType or TrueType font, which has the extension 'otf', 'ttf' or 'ttc'. If you do not specify a font, Phatch will use a "better than nothing" default font which can only handle plain ascii (no unicode characters) and of which you can not control the size. Windows users do not need to give the directory (for example 'Arial.ttf' is good enough). Linux and Mac users need to give the full path of the font. For example if you want to use the FreeSans font on Ubuntu, you need to specify:

  • /usr/share/fonts/truetype/freefont/FreeSans.ttf


Specify the size of the font. This only works if you have specified a font file with 'Font'.


Specify the colour of the font.


There are three kind of possibilities:

  • normal
  • flip image horizontally or vertically
  • rotate image 90, 180 or 270 degrees
