imagemagick
« on: July 24, 2007, 06:04:32 am »
hi,

i am using soho 5.8 with kde

i am looking for a piece of software...ImageMagick.

is ist out of the box included? nor  i found it via gslapt??

afaik is this a  software to convert images in its size(per gui..you can handle it also with cli, but gui wouldd be an asset)

any hints, where i can get it?(maybe i unintentionally deleted it from the box..not sure now, because i never checked dependencies)


greets günter

convert
in a console.  You should see plenty of output if you have imagemagick installed.  I seem to remember the option to install it during the VL install process.  I see it in my Gslapt, its in the proper "packages" repo.

Open a terminal and type 'display'.

ImageMagick is set of commandline tools, none of which are actually called 'imagemagick' (or anything similar).
A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that works.

They come in handy, especially for resizing (or otherwise manipulating) a number of images at once.  Another cool little image tool is pngcrush, for optimising png images for file size (cli only).

I had no idea!  I expected some output in the console.  Not a cute little gui popping up.  Always learning.  :)

It's not exactly an intuitive command is it? :) I picked it up on another forum where a participant discovered it by accident.

Good link, Joe.  I bookmarked this a few months ago: Graphics from the command line

You can also change the image comment: convert -comment "mind yer own beeswax, ya nosey parker" input.png output.png

Actually, I recall a suggestion that images include their licence in the comment ... so that command could come in handy.
