Re: IM6 to IM7: now my images are grey?

When compositing images, the general behavior in more recent versions of IM is to apply the properties of the destination image to the finished result. In this case the destination is your grayscale gradient, so the result will be in the colorspace gray. Try adding "-colorspace sRGB" before the com...

SOLVED - IM6 to IM7: now my images are grey?

Hey guys, haven't dropped by in a while. :) ImageMagick has been working flawlessly in the googliser BASH script for the last couple of years, and I'm sure the only reason for the trouble now is due to my ignorance of the upgrades that came with IM7. I only recently found that 'brew' (installed into...

Re: how to ensure blurred text has enough padding?

Re: SOLVED - How do I specify font usage order? (fallback fonts)

I'm trying to keep the code portable so as to reduce the config-work required for the end-user. I have a couple IM scripts that use fonts which don't reside on all my computers. I keep the scripts in their own folders, and keep a copy of the OTF or TTF font file right in the same folder. To use the...
