Projects / ImageMagick


ImageMagick (TM) is a package for the automated and interative manipulation of images. It supports the display and interactive manipulation of images when used with the X Window System. Although the software is copyrighted by ImageMagick Studio, it is available for free and can be redistributed without fee. ImageMagick may be used as a component of both open source and proprietary applications. ImageMagick compiles and runs under Unix, Linux, Windows '95 and later, Apple MacOS, and Compaq VMS. Binary packages are available for most operating systems. Application programming interfaces (APIs) are provided to support development of image processing applications in the C, C++, and Perl languages.

Wand API

I'm very impressed with the Wand API, it does "work like magic"! It's simple, straight forward and no-nonsense, I really like that!

The documentation and tutorials could use some improvement though, actually there aren't any tutorials. But it's still a great API and all the code behind it.

Awesome...saves me tons of time.
I was always trying to mess with Gimp and other programs to rotate my pictures one by one and I even tried messing with another program to make thumbnails, but this program takes care of all my problems. Thanks for the great program! (

Good Software, but lacks doc

This is good software,
but there's no comprehensive doc.
If you want to program in the C API,
you will only have some reference documentation
along with the source code. But, I repeat,
this is great software!

Insatallation problems under Debian Linux
Can't seem to find the mailing list, so I'll post my question here.

I'm trying to install ImageMagick on my Debian Linux server and am getting the following error during the "make install" step

can't find xarch.h

which is required for the x.lo compile

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
