Thanks!

I`m using a transparent gif overlay, with my own stamp down on the bottom right corner.

Hey Stu,

Long time no see :)

Code:
**Body of script goes here**
import,d:\daws\data\overlay.gif
stamp
stamp
export,d:\daws\maps\main_temps.gif


I created a gif image called `overlay`, with a transparent background. I generally put the watermark/stamp down toward the bottom left of the image, and any other remarks on the image, where you want them to overlay on the exported chart. Make sure the image is the same size as the maps you are plotting and exporting. The above is for a 2M temps and surface plot script, obviously missing the main portion.

Did that make sense? :oops:
