ImageMagickTM is a robust collection of tools and libraries offered under a usage license to read, write, and manipulate an image in many image formats (over 87 major formats) including popular formats like TIFF, JPEG, PNG, PDF, PhotoCD, and GIF. With ImageMagick you can create images dynamically, making it suitable for Web applications. You can also resize, rotate, sharpen, color reduce, or add special effects to an image or image sequence and save your completed work in the same or differing image format. Image processing operations are available from the command line, as well as through C, C++, Perl, or Java programming interfaces.

Here are just a few examples of what ImageMagick can do:


Convert an image from one format to another (e.g. TIFF to JPEG)


Resize, rotate, sharpen, color reduce, or add special effects to an image


Create a montage of image thumbnails


Create a transparent image suitable for use on the Web


Turn a group of images into a GIF animation sequence


Create a composite image by combining several separate images


Draw shapes or text on an image


Decorate an image with a border or frame


Describe the format and characteristics of an image

You can access ImageMagick functions directly from the command line using the ImageMagick tools convert, mogrify, montage, composite, or identify. Finally you have access to the various image manipulation methods directly from the most popular application development environment: Perl, C++, C, Python, C, PHP, or Java. These programs, and much more, are discussed in detail. Just follow the appropriate link on the official ImageMagick WWW site.

You can subscribe to the mailing list or register with the Web-based discourse server. Here you can ask questions and get advice from other ImageMagick users and see announcements of bug fixes, enhancements, and new releases.

> ImageMagick Utilities

ImageMagick provides a powerful set of command line utilities. These utilities use a consistent set of options. The available utilities and links to their documentation are shown in the following table:




composite images together


execute a Magick Scripting Language (MSL) XML script


convert an image or sequence of images


describe an image or image sequence


transform an image or sequence of images


create a composite image (in a grid) from separate images


provides an object-oriented Perl interface to ImageMagick

> Usage & Installation

For a normal usage you need the base and a cpu archives. If you have the GeekGadgets installed in your system, and/or you want to compile programs with ImageMagick support, get the Dev archive instead the base (I keep the origianl directory structure to be compatible with both...)

When you have downloaded the desired archives extract it anywhere you want and assign ImageMagick: to this path.

To run the utilities you need the ixemul.library. Also, a large amount of Stack will be helpful for some opearations.

                                                                                                          News for Version 6.2.0              

Just a CPU archive for now... This release has been compiled using -m68020-60, and the assignament was omited, the root for this distribution is just /gg/m68k-amigaos, more info at the included 'readme' file.

> Compiling the source

If you have the used libraries installed in your system, just extract the archive, cd into amiga and type make, for a plain -m68020-60 version, for a 68040 version run the script config.status.040, for anything else edit and run config.status.def

The libraries I have used to build this release was the following:
bzlib, FreeType, LCMS, JBIG-Kit, JPEG, JasPer, PNG, TIFF, libwmf, FlashPIX, libxml, zlib.

Additionally there are some helpful delegates, (some of they included at the contrib archive)

For detalled info consult the Readme.txt and/or INSTALL-unix.txt files.

Remember this page is just a snapshot of another binarie distribution, all my work was to compile the source code tree, Visit the Official ImageMagick WWW site and support this cool project! all the work are of they!.

Some time ago..was publised on the Amiga German Magazine a review about ImageMagick under AmigaOS, made by Martin Steigerwald and edited by Joern-Erik Burkert. Thanks friends, good work :-)
