Just now realized I was at 100 items (100%) in my outgoing box and must have missed that message when I was sending the PM initially a few days ago. At least my mind wasn't totally gone :lol:
Need to do some cleaning out...

I like your solution as well, especially with the weather data on the image.
What do I need to do to get your script running on my Raspberry Pi?

Would like to get a timelapse video script running at a later stage.
it should work without much editing linux is linux to a degree.

I created a camdata.txt that Cumulus processes the webtags to popular with the relevant data. if imagik is installed on your pi, then "convert" is the program that adds the data (camdata.txt contents) to the image.

if you follow all the code you may need to change the folder structure, but i'm pretty confident that it would work.
