I am trying to rotate some text and paste it into a larger PIL Image.

( cannot use PyFT for some reasons)

However I have a problem of transparency and my new images in a box

shape are overlapping eventhough the test itself does not overlap.

I would like to avoid that problem using the transparency of the image

but without much success so far

Below is my code for Python2

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks
