Original Image:

Example 1:

# Import library from Image 
from wand.image import Image
# Import the image
with Image(filename ='../geeksforgeeks.png') as image:
    # Clone the image in order to process
    with image.clone() as shadow:
        # Invoke shadow function
        shadow.shadow(0.8, 0.2, 10, 40)
        # Save the image ='shadow1.jpg')


Example 2:

# Import libraries from the wand  
from wand.image import Image
from wand.drawing import Drawing
from wand.color import Color
with Drawing() as draw:
    # Set Stroke color the circle to black
    draw.stroke_color = Color('black')
    # Set Width of the circlw to 2 
    draw.stroke_width = 1
    # Set the fill color to 'White (# FFFFFF)'
    draw.fill_color = Color('white')
    # Invoke Circle function with center at 50, 50 and radius 25, 200), # Center point
                (100, 100)) # Perimeter point
    # Set the font style
    draw.font = '../Helvetica.ttf'
