Ever wanted a quick simple way to convert your handdrawn scans into something fancy?

You need a linux system with the following packages:
/comicize tag_1.jpg tag_1_out.jpg "tag 1" 600 1 100 20 1
/comicize tag_2.jpg tag_2_out.jpg "tag 2" 600 1 100 20 1
I included the last picture to point out, that sometimes one needs to fiddle with the settings. In any case, the better the picture, the less you have to fiddle.
Install the script below like this:
$ wget "https://raw.github.com/gist/4261783/f45be51919e11fb93dfb0f6dabb6d404a1400bc5/comicize" -O comicize
$ chmod 755 comicize
