Special Format Characters

The Magick::Image methods annotate, draw, label, and the template function montageImages support special format characters contained in the argument text. These format characters work similar to C's printf. Whenever a format character appears in the text, it is replaced with the equivalent attribute text. The available format characters are shown in the following table:
