ImageMagick is a robust collection of UNIX tools and libraries offered under a usage license to read, write, and manipulate an image in many image formats (over 89 major formats) including popular formats like TIFF, JPEG, PNG, PDF, PhotoCD, and GIF. With ImageMagick you can create images dynamically, making it suitable for Web applications. You can also resize, rotate, sharpen, color reduce, or add special effects to an image or image sequence and save your completed work in the same or differing image format. Image processing operations are available from the command line, or from the C, C++, Perl, Java, PHP, Python, or more...

ImageMagick is free, which is great! However, I consider it to be geek-ware. If you visit the developer's page you'll find they recommend installing it via MacPorts, which uses X11, which requires Apple's developer software Xcode to build the plugin from the source code provided. You don't just casually jump into X11 stuff. The learning curve is a bear.

To go along with the geek-ware-iness: There are TWO version numbers on this software. One is '13.0.0' which refers to I know not what. The other is '6.8.7', which is what actually is downloading today, NOT '6.8.8' despite that version being available for Linux, etc.

Summary: Be prepared to go geek with this software.

Sorry, posted as comment by mistake.

Been using this under Lion. Upgrade to Mountain Lion breaks it

Referenced from: /Users/mikel/lib/ImageMagick-6.7.9/bin/convert
Reason: image not found

fresh install does not help

Use this fine under Lion (10.7). Upgraded to Mountain Lion (10.8.2) and now I get

dyld: Library not loaded: /ImageMagick-6.7.9/lib/liblcms2.2.dylib
Referenced from: /Users/XXX/ImageMagick-6.7.9/bin/convert
Reason: image not found

tried fresh install - no luck.

Yes, I searched for the dylib and found this discussion:

http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=21987

Then I used this link found on the discussion page:

http://www.littlecms.com/download.html

Then I expanded the archive and pointed Terminal at the extracted folder, then:
./configure
sudo make install

Then ImageMagick worked OK in Mountain Lion.

Today is the 2nd of June, 2012 -
The Mac OS binary distribution of ImageMagick seems to be stuck on release 11.3.0 (tar package contains version 6.7.5 from back in Feb of 2012). MacUpdate is displaying/linking to a 'Version 6.7.7', but the download contains version 6.7.5.

I contacted the 'Wizards' at imagemagick.org. If they provide a link to a more recent release, I'll post it here.

30 May and newly posted "version 6.7.7" still provides Release 11.3.0, containing "version 6.7.5".

The link provided on MU for "version 6.7.7" actually provides Release Version 11.3.0, which contains "Version 6.7.5" which, like every second release recently, gives a Library Exception error (at least on Lion). I'm stuck on 6.7.3, which works.

The MacPorts updating system is much more reliable, but requires about 4Gig of complex interlinked dependencies to allow the 4Mb of executables to function. My poor little SSD drive can't spare that space.

Haven't tried this on Lion but on Snow Leopard I get "Incompatible library version: convert requires version 10.0.0 or later, but libltdl.7.dylib provides version 9.0.0" when I try to run 'convert'.

Probably a better way of installing this is Macports. I've never had any problems that way, and it keeps me on top of the frequent updates.

I never liked extra /opt or /sw hierarchy in addition to /usr/local and at some moment decided to stay away from all ports. This allows me to stay on the bleeding edge of svn.cvs/git and learn few things :-)

There's no reason not to install bleeding edge stuff into /opt/local/ or /sw/. It can get complex, but the added niceness is that it's not in a directory hidden from Finder. If the worst comes to the worst, you can always just delete all of /opt/ or /sw/ without worrying too much.

Having said that I use the one installed with MacTeX most of the time!

@MARK EVERITT: the simplest way to access to /usr/local directory from Finder is to create a link via Terminal with this command:
ln -s /usr/local Desktop/local
Another way, without using Terminal, is the following:
1) in the Finder, press command-shift-g and type /usr
2) after that the window of /usr directory is opened, click on the folder named "local" and drag it on the Desktop while holding option and command
As you can see, these two ways make easy the access to /usr/local directory from Finder, thus there isn't any need of extra directories like /opt (macports) or /sw (fink).

I never use precompiled binaries but try to compile them by myself which allows to add different tools. Lately I was able to compile IM 6.5.5-7 with jbig2 and autotrace

One definitely should not compare CLI of ImageMagick with click interface of Desktop publishing tools as they are different programs used for different tasks. It does not mean that Photoshop cannot do some batch jobs or one can write a GUI using (some) of the features of IM.

There are tasks which simply can have no reasonable GUI except drag-and-drop. Example? autotrace or potrace converting bw bitmap graphics to a vector one. Another? pdfcrop (not part of IM but TeX distribution) which by default crops according to bounding box. There is no controversy CLI vs GUI and depending on the task I use one or another
