Convert, resize, and redraw images via command line.

Overview

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 Ruby programming languages. A high-quality 2D renderer is included, which provides a subset of SVG capabilities. ImageMagick's focus is on performance, minimizing bugs, and providing stable APIs and ABIs.

Here are just a few examples of what ImageMagick can do:

  • Convert an image from one format to another (e.g., TIFF to JPEG)
  • Resize, rotate, sharpen, color reduce, or add special effects to an image
  • Create a montage of image thumbnails
  • Create a transparent image suitable for use on the Web
  • Turn a group of images into a GIF animation sequence
  • Create a composite image by combining several separate images
  • Draw shapes or text on an image
  • Decorate an image with a border or frame
  • Describe the format and characteristics of an image

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.

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!
