If you’ve ever wanted to automatically add a coloured border to an image, then this ruby script might come in handy.
add_border.rb does exactly what you expect; it adds a border. You can specify the outer and inner sizes, and the colour of the inner border between. By default, this colour will be the average RBG value, giving you an awesome look by default.
To use it, just run
ruby ./add_border.rb, or
chmod +x it, and run
./add_border.rb. Available arguments are:
-cto specify the border colour
-ifor the inner (coloured) border thickness
-ofor the outer (black) border thickness
- remaining arguments are considered filenames to process.
The script will output files whose names are the same, but with
_border added before the filetype suffix, so that
my_image.jpg would become
You can get it from:
- Github (preferred) as I probably won’t update SVN anymore.
add_border.rb requires RMagick.
