The shade() function is an inbuilt function in the Pgmagick library which is used to shade the image using a distant light source. The function returns the true value on success.

Syntax:

shade( azimuthal angle, elevation angle )

Parameters: This function accept two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • azimuthal angle: This parameter stores the value of the azimuthal angle.
  • elevation angle: This parameter stores the value of the elevation angle.

Return Value: This function returns the Pgmagick object with image added.

Input Image:

Example 1:




from pgmagick import Image, DrawableCircle, DrawableText
from pgmagick import Geometry, Color
  
# draw the image of dimension 600 * 600
img = Image('input.png')
  
# invoke shade function with azimuthal angle as 45 and angle of elevation as 90
img.shade(45, 90)
  
# invoke write function along with filename
img.write('2_a.png')

Output:

Example 2:




# import library
from pgmagick import Image, DrawableCircle, DrawableText
from pgmagick import Geometry, Color
  
# Draw image of dimension 600 * 600 having background green
im = Image(Geometry(600, 600), Color("# 32CD32"))
  
# invoke DrawableCircle() function
circle = DrawableCircle(100, 100, 300, 20)
  
# invoke draw() function
im.draw(circle)
  
# set font size to 40px
im.fontPointsize(40)
  
# invoke DrawableText() function
text = DrawableText(250, 450, "GeeksForGeeks")
  
# invoke draw() function
im.draw(text)
  
# invoke shade function with azimuthal angle as 30 and angle of elevation as 10
im.shade(30, 10)
  
# invoke write function along with filename
im.write('1_b.png')
