ImageMagick Studio LLC announces the release of ImageMagick 6.6.4-7. This release focuses on bug fixes, performance improvements, improved quality of image distortions, and improve support of the PSD image format. To download ImageMagick, go to ... [More] http://www.imagemagick.org. ImageMagick® is a software suite to create, edit, and compose bitmap images. It can read, convert and write images in a variety of formats (over 100) including DPX, EXR, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PDF, PhotoCD, PNG, Postscript, SVG, and TIFF. Use ImageMagick to translate, flip, mirror, rotate, scale, shear and transform images, adjust image colors, apply various special effects, or draw text, lines, polygons, ellipses and Bézier curves. The functionality of ImageMagick is typically utilized from the command line or you can use the features from programs written in your favorite programming language. Choose from these interfaces: G2F (Ada), MagickCore (C), MagickWand (C), ChMagick (Ch), ImageMagickObject (COM ), Magick (C ), JMagick (Java), L-Magick (Lisp), NMagick (Neko/haXe), MagickNet (.NET), PascalMagick (Pascal), PerlMagick (Perl), MagickWand for PHP (PHP), IMagick (PHP), PythonMagick (Python), RMagick (Ruby), or TclMagick (Tcl/TK). With a language interface, use ImageMagick to modify or create images dynamically and automagically. ImageMagick is free software delivered as a ready-to-run binary distribution or as source code that you may freely use, copy, modify, and distribute in both open and proprietary applications. It is distributed under an Apache 2.0-style license, approved by the OSI and recommended for use by the OSSCC. The ImageMagick development process ensures a stable API and ABI. Before each ImageMagick release, we perform a comprehensive security assessment that includes memory and thread error detection to prevent security vulnerabilities. Features and Capabilities Here are just a few examples of what ImageMagick can do: * Format conversion: convert an image from one format to another (e.g. PNG to JPEG). * Transform: resize, rotate, crop, flip or trim an image. * Transparency: render portions of an image invisible. * Draw: add shapes or text to an image. * Decorate: add a border or frame to an image. * Special effects: blur, sharpen, threshold, or tint an image. * Animation: create a GIF animation sequence from a group of images. * Text & comments: insert descriptive or artistic text in an image. * Image identification: describe the format and attributes of an image. * Composite: overlap one image over another. * Montage: juxtapose image thumbnails on an image canvas. * Generalized pixel distortion: correct for, or induce image distortions including perspective. * Morphology of shapes: extract features, describe shapes and recognize patterns in images. * Motion picture support: read and write the common image formats used in digital film work. * Image calculator: apply a mathematical expression to an image or image channels. * Discrete Fourier transform: implements the forward and inverse DFT. * High dynamic-range images: accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from the brightest direct sunlight to the deepest darkest shadows. * Encipher or decipher an image: convert ordinary images into * unintelligible gibberish and back again. * Virtual pixel support: convenient access to pixels outside the image region. * Large image support: read, process, or write mega-, giga-, or tera-pixel image sizes. * Threads of execution support: ImageMagick is thread safe and most internal algorithms are OpenMP-enabled to take advantage of speed-ups offered by multicore processor chips. * Heterogeneous distributed processing: certain algorithms are OpenCL-enabled to take advantage of speed-ups offered by executing in concert across heterogeneous platforms consisting of CPUs, GPUs, and other processors. * ImageMagick on the iPhone: convert, edit, or compose images on your iPhone. Examples of ImageMagick Usage, http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/, shows how to use ImageMagick from the command-line to accomplish any of these tasks and much more. Also, see Fred's ImageMagick Scripts, http://www.fmwconcepts.com/imagemagick/, a plethora of command-line scripts that perform geometric transforms, blurs, sharpens, edging, noise removal, and color manipulations. Significant changes since the last official ImageMagick release, include: 2010-09-27 6.6.4-8 Nicolas Robidoux <nicolas.robidoux< at >gmail...> * Simplified the ClampUpAxes code, the use of its outputs, its comments, and credited Craig DeForest for the "clamp singular values" idea. * No reason to have "insane" precision Sinc in resize.c: Use the 1.2e-12 max. abs. relative error version for Q64 as well as Q32. 2010-09-27 6.6.4-8 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Replace the blurry "High Quality EWA" technique with a 'Clamped EWA' for Distort Resampling. This makes -distort a whole lot nicer and allows for the use of better cylindrical filters. 2010-09-26 6.6.4-7 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Fix Point filter for ResizeImage() caused by support limiting the Box weighting function. 2010-09-26 6.6.4-6 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Don't allow resize filter weights to go to zero (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=17132). 2010-09-24 6.6.4-6 Nicolas Robidoux <nicolas.robidoux< at >gmail...> * Now that MagickPIL is a MagickRealType, some casts are unneeded. 2010-09-21 6.6.4-6 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Do not break words if caption size is absolute (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=17123). * Don't define HAVE_THREADS for --without-threads configure script option. 2010-09-20 6.6.4-5 Nicolas Robidoux <nicolas.robidoux< at >gmail...> * Modified "magick/resize.c" so that MagickPIL is a MagickRealType number. Some computations were needlessly done in long double precision because PIL forced an automatic upcast wherever it appeared. Changed its name to MagickREALTYPEPI. <- This was later reverted back to MagickPIL. * Modified "magick/resize.c" so that Bohman uses one trig call one sqrt call instead of two trig calls. 2010-09-20 6.6.4-5 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * modified "magick/resample.c" to allow use of either EWA or HQEWA (default) * Removed LanczosFast from supported filters (SincFast*SincFast is faster) 2010-09-19 6.6.4-5 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * If IPTC profile is not embedded in an 8bim resource, declare it IPTC rather than 8BIM. * Support %[version] and %[copyright]. * Improve performance of the pixel cache. 2010-09-18 6.6.4-4 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Automatically set the quantum depth to 16 for HDRI. 2010-09-16 6.6.4-2 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * IPTC profile not always wrapped properly inside an 8BIM profile. * TIFF tile geometry must be divisible by 16. 2010-09-15 6.6.4-2 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Rename of SincPolynomial to SincFast for easier user understanding * Ditto for LanczosChebyshev to LanzcosFast 2010-09-14 6.6.4-2 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Switch default resize filters to using the faster SincPolynomial filter by default internally. However 'Sinc' will still use the Trigonometric function, and can be used to assign the trig version of Sinc() to filters using the filter expert options. * The default filter for 'distort' was found to be a very blurry inaccurate filter function. It was removed and replaced with a correct Gaussian filter (as used by resize) * Added a switch so that "-interpolate filter" will force the use of a cylindrical filter for ALL pixels in distorted images. That is you can use that switch to use a cylindrical filter even for images that are being enlarged by the distortion. However EWA is still currently using a fixed 2.0 sampling radius. This switch complements the use of "-filter point" which turns off EWA filters in favor of interpolation for all pixels in a distorted image. BOTH switches should not be used together. * A bug in the support radius of the EWA resampling function was found, now that correctly defined resize filters are being used. Suddenly Normal Gaussian distortions are not so blurry, and tests with distortions of the 'Rings' image show extremely good and clear results, with only minimal blurring. The filter 'blur' expert option can be used to adjust this further. The above represents a major improvement forward in the quality of the image distortion operator. But near-unity distortions (no scaling) are still overly blurry. 2010-09-13 6.6.4-2 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Don't negate the geometry offset for the -extent option. 2010-09-09 6.6.4-1 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * The RGBO format is now listed as a supported format. 2010-09-07 6.6.4-1 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Added the Nicolas Robidoux and Chantal Racette Lanczos resize filter function as "LanczosChebyshev" as faster alternative to Lanczos. * Re-code Nicolas Robidoux and Chantal Racette Polynomial Approximation of the Sinc Trigonometric resize filter, as a proper filter to allow direct comparision and speed testing of the filter. * Expanded the "-set option:filter:verbose 1" output, so as to also include the actual functions and other values that were used to create the filter. 2010-09-02 6.6.4-0 el_supremo <digipete< at >shaw...> * Repair a few incorrect LocaleNCompare() calls (ttf.c, ps.c). 2010-08-31 6.6.4-0 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Path no longer closed if join style is round (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16943). * Add case for BGRQuantum to GetQuantumExtent(). * Support no compression on PCX write. 2010-08-23 6.6.3-10 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Fixed bug in the raw BGRA coders (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16880). * Fix off-by-one error in the PSD coders. * Nicolas Robidoux with the assistance of Chantal Racette contribute an approximation of the sinc function over the interval [-3,3]. * Eliminate a small memory leak in LevelizeImageChannel() (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16951). * Recognize -fx logtwo (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16958). 2010-08-15 6.6.3-7 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Throw exception if image size differs for the compare program but the -subimage-search option is not specified. 2010-08-13 6.6.3-6 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * The AdobeRgb.tif TIFF image no longer faults under Windows (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16838). * Add -subimage-search option to the compare utility. 2010-08-12 6.6.3-5 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * The -fx 2e 6/1e 5 argument no longer returns the wrong results (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16833). 2010-08-10 6.6.3-5 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <glennrp< at >image...> * Emit a warning if the PNG encoder can't satisfy the color type and bit depth requested with a "-define" directive. 2010-08-07 6.6.3-4 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * The orient option sometimes improperly set "undefined" (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16795). * Only list orientation options for the -list orientation option (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16801). * Return proper standard deviation for combined channels (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16786). * Handle transparency properly for the PSD image format. 2010-08-05 6.6.3-3 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <glennrp< at >image...> * Properly map PNG intent to image->rendering_intent 2010-08-01 6.6.3-3 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Eliminate bogus "invalid colormap index" when pinging ICO images. * Support -set density / units. 2010-07-31 6.6.3-2 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Only use the first alpha channel in PSD image. * Only use XPM complying colors for XPM images (e.g. green is rgb(0,255,0)). 2010-07-27 6.6.3-2 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <glennrp< at >image...> * Eliminate useless message about assuming zero delay when writing a single-frame MNG, and changed it from Error to Warning when writing a multiple-frame MNG. 2010-07-25 6.6.3-1 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <glennrp< at >image...> * Don't "ping" a PNG image if it is embedded in a MNG. Otherwise the reader tries to read MNG chunks from the interior of the embedded PNG, resulting in an erroneous "corrupted image" message. 2010-07-09 6.6.3-1 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Fix memory leak in for corrupt BMP images (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16600). * Repair several issues when writing to stdout (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16620). * A GIF image with the .bgr extension is still a GIF (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16662). 2010-07-07 6.6.3-1 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <glennrp< at >image...> * The PNG decoder failed to handle the tRNS chunk properly for grayscale images where the png bit_depth was not the same as the quantum depth, and the transparent color was not black. 2010-07-01 6.6.3-0 Chris Madison <madisonblu< at >gmail...> * Pinging the DJVU image format no longer faults. * Check for time-limit-exceeded in only one thread. * Reading filenames from a file (e.g. < at >filenames) no longer includes the utility name (side effect of StringToArgv() method). 2010-06-28 6.6.2-10 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Support the tiff:fill-order define. * Filters are case sensitive (e.g. reduce-Colors). * Restore mogrify's -path option. * The -list module option lists image coders and image filters. 2010-06-27 6.6.2-9 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Add the ImageView API. * Fix DJVU coder to read one page (e.g. 'image.djvu[2]'). * Support -define png:bit-depth=1 -define png:color-type=3 for PNG format. 2010-06-22 6.6.2-8 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Skip byte when DDS bitcount is 32 (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16487). * Montage now uses final background setting (e.g. montage -background none ... -background lightblue show:). * Do not annotate directory paths in ListFiles(). * Reset the image matte for png:color-type=2. 2010-06-17 6.6.2-7 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Support new label:pointsize property. * Miscellany->Slide Show, in the display program, now cycles through the image sequence. * Recognize certain hex color values (e.g. #b9e1cc00) for the -fx argument. * Reduce memory requirements when dithering on the iPhone. * Command line operators no longer affected by settings that appear after them (e.g. -splice 10x0 0 0 -gravity center). * Compute the proper DPX user data field size. 2010-06-15 6.6.2-6 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Fix some nits to keep the clang compiler happy. 2010-06-14 6.6.2-5 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Fix transprancy handling for Morphology Convolve * Adjustments of Hit And Miss and Edge Detection kernel definitions * Added 'ThinDiagonals' Thinning Kernel two sub-types * Handling for Convolution of 1-D vertical kernels. However this was removed (using #if-#endif) as I found it slower in tests! 2010-06-12 6.6.2-5 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * mogrify -format properly handles compressed image filename (e.g. -format jpg logo.png.bz2). * Respect dither option when saving to the GIF image format. 2010-06-08 6.6.2-4 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * End of string sentinal is \n not \r. 2010-06-06 6.6.2-3 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <glennrp< at >image...> * Don't decode pixels in coders/png.c when image->ping is set. 2010-06-06 6.6.2-3 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Reset image filename when reading inline images. * Don't clamp floating point values for HDRI-enabled ImageMagick. 2010-05-25 6.6.2-2 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Replaced '^' morphology kernel rotation with two variants '>' and '<' * 'Skeleton' variant to thin down images as symmetrically as possible. * Spelling correction: Manhatten -> Manhattan 2010-06-01 6.6.2-2 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <glennrp< at >image...> * Properly scale color components of the PNG bKGD chunk. * Prevent MNG divide by zero in calculation of frame_timeout. Set both frame_delay and frame_timeout to infinite when ticks_per_second is zero, as required by the MNG spec. 2010-05-31 6.6.2-2 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Add x:silent option to prevent beeps when reading the X image format. * Recognize TTF for GetMagicInfo(). * Ensure the set option deletes the image artifact. 2010-05-28 6.6.2-1 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <glennrp< at >image...> * Prevent coders/png.c from attempting to write an empty tRNS chunk. 2010-05-25 6.6.2-1 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Fix for Square Array Rotates (off center origin rotate) * Added HitAndMiss kernel Ridges2 to find 2 pixel thick ridges * Added FreiChen:0,{angle} FreiChen:{angle} and FreiChen:-1 variations to complete this kernels definition 2010-05-24 6.6.2-1 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Respect density when rendering SVG images. * Set AVI handler to the MPEG coder. * Compute the proper DPX user data field size. * Do not interpret a format specifier when enclosed in brackets (e.g. rose_tile_%[filename:tile].gif. * Use 64-bit types when compiling with the 64-bit Visual C compiler under Windows. * Prevent MNG divide by zero in calculation of frame_delay (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16320). 2010-05-23 6.6.2-0 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Third Re-write of MorphologyApply() to better handle compound methods. * Implemented -set option:morphology:compose for merging results of multiple kernels. "None" means re-iterate results with next kernel. While "Undefined" means to use the internal default for a method. Thinning, Thickening, HitAndMiss, Convolve, Correlate defaults to "None" while HitAndMiss defaults to "Lighten" (union of all kernel results). Other morphology methods defaults still to be decided. * Added HitAndMiss Kernel: Ridges (find ridges and pixel width lines) * Rotation Expansion of single kernels '^' and '< at >' flags in arguments EG: -set option:showkernel 1 -morphology Convolve 'Blur:0x2^' * ExpandKernelInfo() (rotation expand) now groks symmetrical kernels. So the above will only produce a list of 2 kernels, not 4 kernels 2010-05-18 6.6.2-0 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Separation of internal function MorphologyApply() from MorphologyImageChannel() to calls to convolve without user settings. * Rewrite of MorphologyApply() to output better 'verbose' messages * Better handling of Gaussian tyle filters (bug fixes) * Bug fix and optimization of kernel size calculations in "gem.c" * Allow '^' or '< at >' flags in 'user defined' kernel size arguments to expand kernel into a rotated list. EG: -set option:showkernel 1 -morphology Thinning '3< at >: 0,1,0 0,1,0 0,0,0' * Allow a scaled unity kernel to be added to kernel (EdgeDet->Sharpen) EG: -set option:convolve:scale [kernel_scale][^!],[unity_scale][%] * Addition of "Laplacian of Gaussian" (LOG), also known as Mexican Hat EG: -morphology convolve LOG:0x1 * Added FreiChen, Kirsch Convolution kernels * Added Descrete 'Laplacian of Gaussian' kernels (Laplacian type 15 and 19) * Added Edges HitAndMiss Kernel 2010-05-17 6.6.2-0 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * PSD images require a proper layer to support an alpha channel. * Enable PFM endian support. * Add context to -border for montage. Inside the parenthesis it adds a border to the image otherwise it sets the border for the layout manager. * 24-bit BMP images are not colormapped even if header colors != 0. * Set DPX user data like this: -set profile dpx:userdata.txt. * Make sure Lab => RGB => Lab survives the round trip. 2010-05-15 6.6.1-10 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Use ScaleCharToQuantum() in coders/src.c (reference http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16229). * Don't clamp HDRI EXR pixels. 2010-05-14 6.6.1-9 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Increase the estimated # points for the path drawing primitive. * Remove any prior resolution block from PSD before writing the new block. 2010-05-14 6.6.1-9 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Addition of more Morphological/Convolution Kernels. DOG (Difference of Gaussians) and DOB (Difference of Blurs), EG: -morphology convolve DOG:0x1,3 -morphology convolve DOB:0x1,3,90 * Added Prewitt, Roberts, Compass Convolution Kernels * Ring Symbol Kernel (subtraction of Disk from a Disk) 2010-05-13 6.6.1-9 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * The pixel buffer was underallocated for some image formats when streaming. 2010-05-12 6.6.1-8 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Implementation of Pattern Matching Morphology methods HitAndMiss, Thicken, Thinning * Reporting of Kernel Strings that fail to parse (though not why) * Parsing of Multiple Kernel Strings, generating a list of kernels * Union of results from Multiple Kernels for HitAndMiss method * Interated Multiple Kernels for all other morphology methods * Added many new kernels for HitAndMiss and Convolution Sobel, Laplacian, Cross, Peaks, Corners, LineEnds, LineJunctions, ConvexHull (for Thicken), Skeleton (for Thinning) 2010-05-08 6.6.1-8 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <glennrp< at >image...> * Use proper background.index when writing indexed PNG, if the background color is in the palette. 2010-05-08 6.6.1-7 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Fix improper 'invalid colormap index' PNG bug. * Fix PerlMagick compile exception. 2010-05-07 6.6.1-6 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Added % and ! modification flags to morphology distance kernel scaling factor, for easier usage. * Bug fix for compose math channel handling and morphology diff usage 2010-05-06 6.6.1-6 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Do not claim gray colorspace if gray image includes a non-gray pixel. * Initialize BMP alpha channel to opaque for RGB images. * Fixed under allocation for round rectangles. * The -list option returns a 0 status as expected. 2010-05-06 6.6.1-6 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Made use of new no-'sync' channel enabled mathematical compose methods for the difference morphology methods. These should now work correctly for specific channels, and more importantly for alpha shaped morphology. 2010-05-05 6.6.1-6 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <glennrp< at >image...> * Fixed bugs with losing the opacity channel while writing some PNG images. (bug reported by Anthony T.) 2010-05-05 6.6.1-6 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <glennrp< at >image...> * Simplified and corrected rowbytes calculation in coders/png.c and added more logging. 2010-05-05 6.6.1-6 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Rename of "Add" and "Subtract" compositions to "ModulusAdd" and "ModulusSubtract" for more clarity of there functions. Old names will continue to work as expected. * Fix "Minus", "ModulusAdd", and "ModulusSubtract" to follow normal SVG 'Over' blending specifications, (see next for override) Note that this does NOT include the "Plus" composition method which has SVG definition for it to use a 'Plus' blending rather than 'Over' blending. * By default mathematical compositions work as per SVG definition. That is the results are synchronized with 'Over' alpha-blending (except "Plus" which uses 'plus' alpha-blending). By removing the default 'sync' flag from the -channel setting however Break this inter-channel synchronization and do the mathematical operations only on the individual channels as specified by the -channel setting. That is do 'channel' math rather than 'SVG' composition.

ImageMagick Studio LLC announces the release of ImageMagick 6.6.0-1. This release focuses on bug fixes, performance improvements, and new features such as the -morphology option. To download ImageMagick, go to http://www.imagemagick.org. ... [More] ImageMagick® is a software suite to create, edit, and compose bitmap images. It can read, convert and write images in a variety of formats (over 100) including DPX, EXR, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PDF, PhotoCD, PNG, Postscript, SVG, and TIFF. Use ImageMagick to translate, flip, mirror, rotate, scale, shear and transform images, adjust image colors, apply various special effects, or draw text, lines, polygons, ellipses and Bézier curves. The functionality of ImageMagick is typically utilized from the command line or you can use the features from programs written in your favorite programming language. Choose from these interfaces: G2F (Ada), MagickCore (C), MagickWand (C), ChMagick (Ch), ImageMagickObject (COM+), Magick++ (C++), JMagick (Java), L-Magick (Lisp), NMagick (Neko/haXe), MagickNet (.NET), PascalMagick (Pascal), PerlMagick (Perl), MagickWand for PHP (PHP), IMagick (PHP), PythonMagick (Python), RMagick (Ruby), or TclMagick (Tcl/TK). With a language interface, use ImageMagick to modify or create images dynamically and automagically. ImageMagick is free software delivered as a ready-to-run binary distribution or as source code that you may freely use, copy, modify, and distribute. Its license is compatible with the GPL. It runs on all major operating systems. Features and Capabilities Here are just a few examples of what ImageMagick can do: * Format conversion: convert an image from one format to another (e.g. PNG to JPEG). * Transform: resize, rotate, crop, flip or trim an image. * Transparency: render portions of an image invisible. * Draw: add shapes or text to an image. * Decorate: add a border or frame to an image. * Special effects: blur, sharpen, threshold, or tint an image. * Animation: create a GIF animation sequence from a group of images. * Text & comments: insert descriptive or artistic text in an image. * Image identification: describe the format and properties of an image. * Composite: overlap one image over another. * Montage: juxtapose image thumbnails on an image canvas. * Motion picture support: read and write the common image formats used in digital film work. * Image calculator: apply a mathematical expression to an image or image channels. * Discrete Fourier transform: implements the forward and inverse DFT. * High dynamic-range images: accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from the brightest direct sunlight to the deepest darkest shadows. * Encipher or decipher an image: convert ordinary images into unintelligible gibberish and back again. * Virtual pixel support: convenient access to pixels outside the image region. * Large image support: read, process, or write mega-, giga-, or tera-pixel image sizes. * Threads of execution support: ImageMagick is thread safe and most internal algorithms are OpenMP-enabled to take advantage of speed-ups offered by the dual and quad-core processor technologies. * Heterogeneous distributed processing: certain algorithms are OpenCL-enabled to take advantage of speed-ups offered by executing in concert across heterogeneous platforms consisting of CPUs, GPUs, and other processors. Examples of ImageMagick Usage, http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/, shows how to use ImageMagick from the command-line to accomplish any of these tasks and much more. Also, see Fred's ImageMagick Scripts, http://www.fmwconcepts.com/imagemagick/, a plethora of command-line scripts that perform geometric transforms, blurs, sharpens, edging, noise removal, and color manipulations. Significant changes since the last official ImageMagick release, include: 2010-02-27 6.6.0-1 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Check to see if ICON image width /height exceeds that of the image canvas. * Set the DPX descriptor to Luma only if the image type is not TrueColor. * Add support for the Adobe Large Document format. * Add support for -fx airy(), j0(), j1(), jinc(), and sinc() (reference viewtopic.php?f=2&t=15685). * Don't embed an XMP profile in an EPS image for now. 2010-02-21 6.6.0-0 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Insufficient image data in EPT is a warning rather than an error. * Respect -type TrueColor when writing gray DPX images. * Fix problem reading 10-bit grayscale DPX images when scanline length is not a multiple of 3. * BMP has an alpha channel, it was treated as an opacity channel. 2010-02-20 6.5.9-10 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Write 10-bit grayscale DPX images properly. 2010-02-18 6.5.9-8 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Detect PDF ICCBased colorspace. 2010-02-18 6.5.9-7 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Finalized -set option:convolve:scale kernel normalize/scale option 2010-02-16 6.5.9-7 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * TransformImage() resets the image blob when called in the PICT decoder; use SetImageExtent() instead. 2010-02-14 6.5.9-6 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Support PSD RLE compression. 2010-02-13 6.5.9-5 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * The jpeg:extent define sometimes exceeded the specified limit. 2010-02-09 6.5.9-4 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Resolve "too many open files" (reference viewtopic.php?f=3&t=15546). 2010-02-08 6.5.9-3 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Added Correlate method which does a Convolve without reflecting the kernel. 2010-02-07 6.5.9-3 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Initialize grayscale colormap for PSD images. 2010-02-07 6.5.9-3 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * Final testing and fixing of basic morphology operators * Addition Third-level Subtractive Morphology Methods: EdgeIn, EdgeOut, Edge, TopHat, BottomHat * Ensuring original kernels passed to morphology are cloned before being modified for use by specific methods (EG: convolve scale/normalize) 2010-02-03 6.5.9-2 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * display -immutable to display transparent image without a checkboard. 2010-01-27 6.5.9-1 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <glennrp< at >image...> * Make -define png:color-type less persnickety about what it will accept. 2010-01-24 6.5.9-1 Anthony Thyssen <A.Thyssen< at >griffith...> * added use of -precision in 'showkernel' output of -morphology * correct use of a 'reflected kernel' for 'Convolve' 'Dilate' and 'Distance' Morphology primitives. This does not have a performance hit, though is only truely applicable when the kernel is asymmetric. Note that 'Erode' does not use a 'reflected' kernel, so that 'Open' and 'Close' operations work properly. This 'reflected usage is defined by online morphology lecture notes (Google for "EECE Binary Morphology") * Added convolve kernel scaling setting "-set option:convolve:scale N" If undefined morphology convolve does not do any scaling or normalization of the convolution kernel. A value of 0.0 causes normalization for both zero and non-zero (added weights) kernel types. 2010-01-15 6.5.9-1 Cristy <quetzlzacatenango< at >image...> * Speed up reading the PSD image format. * Add the -precision option. Use it to set the maximum number of significant digits to be printed. * Add -features option to the identify program to display channel features. * Add -unique option to the identify program to display channel features. _______________________________________________ Magick-announce mailing list Magick-announce< at >imagemagick.org http://studio.imagemagick.org/mailman/listinfo/magick-announce [Less]

ImageMagick Studio LLC announces the release of ImageMagick 6.4.5-9. This release focuses on additional speed improvements including exploiting multiple cores with the assistance of OpenMP technologies. Some algorithms perform at a near linear ... [More] speed-up (given 4 cores we expect the algorithm to execute nearly four times as fast). ImageMagick® is a software suite to create, edit, and compose bitmap images. It can read, convert and write images in a variety of formats (over 100) including DPX, EXR, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PDF, PhotoCD, PNG, Postscript, SVG, and TIFF.

ImageMagick Studio LLC announces the release of ImageMagick 6.3.8-2. ImageMagick® is a software suite to create, edit, and compose bitmap images. It can read, convert and write images in a variety of formats (over 100) including DPX, EXR, GIF ... [More] , JPEG, JPEG-2000, PDF, PhotoCD, PNG, Postscript, SVG, and TIFF. Use ImageMagick to translate, flip, mirror, rotate, scale, shear and transform images, adjust image colors, apply various special effects, or draw text, lines, polygons, ellipses and Béer curves. The functionality of ImageMagick is typically utilized from the command line or you can use the features from programs written in your favorite programming language. Choose from these interfaces: G2F (Ada), MagickCore (C), MagickWand (C), ChMagick (Ch), ImageMagickObject (COM ), Magick (C ), JMagick (Java), L-Magick (Lisp), NMagick (Neko/haXe), MagickNet (.NET), PascalMagick (Pascal), PerlMagick (Perl), MagickWand for PHP (PHP), IMagick (PHP), PythonMagick (Python), RMagick (Ruby), or TclMagick (Tcl/TK). With a language interface, use ImageMagick to modify or create images dynamically and automagically. ImageMagick is free software delivered as a ready-to-run binary distribution or as source code that you may freely use, copy, modify, and distribute. Its license is compatible with the GPL. It runs on all major operating systems. Features and Capabilities Here are just a few examples of what ImageMagick can do: * Format conversion: convert an image from one format to another (e.g. PNG to JPEG) * Transform: resize, rotate, crop, flip or trim an image * Transparency: render portions of an image invisible * Draw: add shapes or text to an image * Decorate: add a border or frame to an image * Special effects: blur, sharpen, threshold, or tint an image * Animation: create a GIF animation sequence from a group of images * Text & comments: insert descriptive or artistic text in an image * Image identification: describe the format and properties of an image * Composite: overlap one image over another * Montage: juxtapose image thumbnails on an image canvas * Motion picture support: read and write the common image formats used in digital film work * Image calculator: apply a mathematical expression to an image or image channels * High dynamic-range images: accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from the brightest direct sunlight to the deepest darkest shadows * Large image support: read, process, or write mega- and giga-pixel image sizes * Threads of execution support: ImageMagick is thread safe and many internal algorithms are already threaded to take advantage of speed-ups offered by the dual and quad-core processor technologies Examples of ImageMagick Usage: http://www.cit.gu.edu.au/~anthony/graphics/imagick6 shows how to use ImageMagick to accomplish any of these tasks and much more or see the ImageMagick home page at http://www.imagemagick.org
