NAME

       ImageMagick  -  is  a  free  software  suite for the creation, modification and display of
       bitmap images.

SYNOPSIS

       convert input-file [options] output-file

OVERVIEW

       ImageMagick®, is a software suite to create, edit, and compose bitmap images. It can read,
       convert  and  write  images  in  a  variety  of  formats  (about 100) including GIF, JPEG,
       JPEG-2000, PNG, PDF, PhotoCD, TIFF, and DPX. 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 B\['e]zier curves.

       ImageMagick is free software delivered as a ready-to-run binary distribution or as  source
       code that you can freely use, copy, modify, and distribute. Its license is compatible with
       the GPL. It runs on all major operating systems.

       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: MagickCore (C), MagickWand (C), ChMagick (Ch), Magick++  (C++),  JMagick
       (Java),  L-Magick  (Lisp),  PascalMagick  (Pascal),  PerlMagick (Perl), MagickWand for PHP
       (PHP), PythonMagick (Python), RMagick (Ruby),  or  TclMagick  (Tcl/TK).  With  a  language
       interface, use ImageMagick to modify or create images automagically and dynamically.

       ImageMagick  includes  a number of command-line utilities for manipulating images. Most of
       you are probably accustom to editing images one at a time with a graphical user  interface
       (GUI)  with  such  programs as gimp or Photoshop. However, a GUI is not always convenient.
       Suppose you want to process an image dynamically from a web script or you  want  to  apply
       the  same  operations  to many images or repeat a specific operation at different times to
       the same or different image.  For  these  types  of  operations,  the  command-line  image
       processing utility is appropriate.

       In the paragraphs below, find a short description for each command-line tool.Cl ick on the
       program name to get details on the program usage and a list of comman d-line options  that
       alters  how  the  program  performs. If you are just getting acq uainted with ImageMagick,
       start at the top of the list, the convert program, and
        work your way down. Also be sure to peruse Anthony Thyssen's tutorial on how to
        use ImageMagick utilities to convert, compose, or edit images from the command- line.

       convert

              convert between image formats as well as resize an image,  blur,  crop,  despeckle,
              dither, draw on, flip, join, re-sample, and much more.

       identify

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

       mogrify

              resize an image, blur, crop, despeckle, dither, draw on, flip, join, re-sample, and
              much more. Mogrify overwrites the original image file, whereas, convert writes to a
              different image file.

       composite

              overlaps one image over another.

       montage

              create a composite image by combining several separate images. The images are tiled
              on the composite image optionally adorned with a border,  frame,  image  name,  and
              more.

       compare

              mathematically  and  visually  annotate  the  difference  between  an image and its
              reconstruction..

       stream

              is a lightweight tool to stream one or  more  pixel  components  of  the  image  or
              portion  of  the  image  to  your  choice  of  storage formats. It writes the pixel
              components as they are read from the input image a row  at  a  time  making  stream
              desirable when working with large images or when you require raw pixel components.

       display

              displays an image or image sequence on any X server.

       animate

              animates an image sequence on any X server.

       import

              saves  any  visible  window on an X server and outputs it as an image file. You can
              capture a single window, the entire screen,  or  any  rectangular  portion  of  the
              screen.

       conjure

              interprets and executes scripts written in the Magick Scripting Language (MSL).
