example 1 : demo_bboximage.py
example 2 : demo_ribbon_box.py - making the image on the fly
similar to annotation, but works with OffsetBox instead of text. Can be used to place a BboxImage(e.g., clip art image) or a TextPatch object (see below)
example : demo_annotation_box.py
A patch class with outline of the text. I'm still experimenting with the api and It is currently included as an example.
example : demo_text_path.py
a simple framework for image filtering effects (only for agg backend).
