NAME

       identify - describes the format and characteristics of one or more image files.

SYNOPSIS

       identify-im6.q16 [options] input-file

OVERVIEW

       The  identify-im6.q16  program  is a member of the ImageMagick-ims6.q16(1) suite of tools.
       It describes the format and characteristics of one or more image files. It also reports if
       an image is incomplete or corrupt. The information returned includes the image number, the
       file name, the width and height of the image, whether the image is colormapped or not, the
       number  of colors in the image (by default off use -define unique=true option), the number
       of bytes in the image, the format of the image (JPEG, PNM, etc.), and finally  the  number
       of  seconds it took to read and process the image. Many more attributes are available with
       the verbose option.

       Image Operators:
         -grayscale method    convert image to grayscale
         -negate              replace each pixel with its complementary color

       Miscellaneous Options:
         -debug events        display copious debugging information
         -help                print program options
         -list type           print a list of supported option arguments
         -log format          format of debugging information
         -version             print version information

       By default, the image format of `file' is determined by its magic number.   To  specify  a
       particular  image format, precede the filename with an image format name and a colon (i.e.
       ps:image) or specify the image type as  the  filename  suffix  (i.e.  image.ps).   Specify
       'file' as '-' for standard input or output.

NOTE

       Although  some options appear to modify the file to be identified, the identify command is
       strictly read only. For instance, the crop option  crops  the  in-memory  image  and  then
       describes the result.
