Drawing Text with Shadow Outline using Python Imagemagick

Here it is a small recipe to create a shadow outline effect around a text label, using the ImageMagick library in Python. You need to install the Imagemagick Python library, e.g. the python3-pythonmagick package if you are using a Debian GNU/Linux distro.

The result can be used to overlay a label over an image, in a subtitle-like effect.
