is there a way to overlay a text over an image in the compositor? I usually add my website URL to final images o post on the web, and everytime i need to open the final image in gimp to overlay text. See an example here: enter image description here [Overlayed text in the lower right corner]

I already tried the stamp output under the render settings, but there is no way to choose the font type and/or the position of the text. Both should be possible. The only useable method i got by now is to create a text as image with alpha in Gimp and then overlay it. Is there a better method?

Thanks for help!!

  • $\begingroup$ Hi cetagon, this is not what i meant. I need a solution for a Compositor NODE, not a text object of 3D space.I don't want to render out something over and over again that is already there- It should be similar to this thread, that unfortunately remained unanswered as well: blenderartists.org/forum/… $\endgroup$ Dec 22 '16 at 14:47
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry for the misunderstanding cetagon. I thought it was clear that the phrase "overlay a text over an image" explained that i am searching for a way to use a text from a text editor, not the 3D Text object. Anyway, is there a chance to do so?The Render layer solution is the same as overlaying a text using gimp or photoshop. $\endgroup$ Dec 23 '16 at 19:41
