imagemagick Overview

ImageMagick is a software suite to create, edit, and compose bitmap images. Depending on compilation, it can read, convert and write images in a variety of formats (over 100) including DPX, EXR, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PDF, PhotoCD, PNG, Postscript, SVG, and TIFF. 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 Bezier curves.


Imagemagick is available on Rhea as a module.
