We recently wanted to brand several of our plots for publication in the local press. I looked around and found a couplesuggestions on how to add images to plots, but nothing that seemed modular or customizable. My colleague reccomended the relatively new Magick package, which provided all of the functionality I needed (plus a lot more). Here is a simple example along with the code to replicate it:
You can see that this creates a logo centered on a grey background with an annotation originating in the northwest of the band. I wanted to put our logo on the bottom right, 538 style, so I added some superfulous canvas on the right of the png and then croped it to fit our plots with Magick. The point is, Magick is highly customizable and opens up a lot of options that were previously closed to all but the undaunted photoshoppers. Want Vincent Vega to point at your x-axis? Go for it! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go home and have a heart attack.
