Can I create text overlays in Chinese?

Yes. You can create text layers in Chinese using Cloudinary's image transformations.

Here's an example of a font style created with the Ruby command:

Cloudinary::Uploader.text("Chinese Sample",
                          :public_id => "chinese_style",
                          :font_family => "WenQuanYi Zen Hei", :font_size => 24,
                          :font_color => 'black', :opacity => 90)


Now this style can be used for generating a text layer in Japanese. For example:,g_north,y_10/mountain.jpg
