Day 5 - 100 days of Coding - Python - Add text into Image

So it's day 5 of 100 days of coding. Today I wanted to try something different. I want to add the day into my cover pic daily. Doing it manually would be boring. So I thought of automating it. So today we are gonna add the Number of the day I am working on into the image using Open CV

Today's Objectives

1) Create a python script that will automatically add the given day's text into image

import cv2
import os

x_and_y = (470, 340)
font_color = (255, 255, 255)
font_scale = 2
output_folder = './'

date = input("Enter the date to be added ") # Get Date to be added from user
im = cv2.imread('data/100_days_image_template.jpeg', 1)

cv2.putText(im, 'Day {}'.format(date), x_and_y,
            font, font_scale, font_color, 2)
cv2.imwrite(output_folder+date+".jpeg", im)

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
