combine_overlays: Combine multiple image overlays into a single file

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

View source: R/combine_overlays.R

Description

This function combines any number of images into a single file, which may then be further processed as an image or transformed into an image overlay.

combine_overlays(
  ...,
  output_file = tempfile(fileext = ".png"),
  transparency = 0
)

Arguments

...

File paths for images to be combined. Note that combining TIFF images requires the tiff package be installed.

output_file

The path to save the resulting image to. Can be any format accepted by magick::image_read. Optionally, can be set to NULL, in which case this function will return the image as a magick object instead of writing to disk.

transparency

A value indicating how much transparency should be added to each image. If less than 1, interpreted as a proportion (so a value of 0.1 results in each image becoming 10% more transparent); if between 1 and 100, interpreted as a percentage (so a value of 10 results in each image becoming 10% more transparent.) A value of 0 is equivalent to no additional transparency.

Value

If output_file is not null, output_file, invisibly. If output_file is null, a magick image object.
