Re: How to use -set

I do not know the limitation of using -fx expressions, but for this one, why not just do magick input.jpg -set option:my_w %[fx:w+200] \( watermark.jpg -resize %[fx:my_w] \) -composite output.jpg Yep, that's how I usually handle it when the situation is that straightforward. It can be trickier when...

Re: How to use -set

I'm willing to upgrade to v7. I'll be running this on a Mac. I'm not seeing that on the downloads page, would MacPorts support building that version? (I'm really new to Macs, doing this for my wife, so all pointers for this would be greatly appreciated). It's not even so much about the FX expressio...

Re: How to use -set

I believe that IM 7 will allow resize to use fx expressions I was writing my reply while you were posting this. My experience with IM7 so far shows that an FX expression of the construction "%[fx:w+h]" will work almost anywhere, and can include most of the symbols described on THIS PAGE . And the "...

Re: How to use -set

I'm trying to use convert to append two images. I want the 2nd image to match the width of the first. [...] What am I missing here? Is there a better technique? If you're willing to move into ImageMagick v7, your command may work just the way you're trying to do it. I have beta version "ImageMagick...

Re: Making Printable Metadata Labels

Hi there! Super new to IM, but I could not find an easy way to do this in the docs. I would like to create metadata labels to stick on the back of my photos. The photos have already been printed, so I do not want an overlay. This can be done, but the difficulty would depend on several things. You s...

Re: Resizing, Cropping & Converting a series of Images to Patrol Cycle Animated GIF + adding Watermark

I have a series of images that I want to convert to an animated gif that plays forwards and backwards. In the process I also want to resize and crop them. I'd like the animated gif to have a watermark. I'm using "ImageMagick 6.9.3-1 Q16 x64" on Windows 7 64, so for my test I transposed your backsla...

Re: Possible bug with -interword-spacing in IM7

Now it appears the behavior of the "-interword-spacing" has also changed between the Windows versions IM 6.9.2-8 Q16 x64 and IM 6.9.3-1 Q16 x64. There is a clear difference in spacing between words when running these two commands using IM 6.9.2-8 Q16 x64... convert -pointsize 36 label:"This is a tes...

Re: Scaling and Converting a .png to .jpg

I take a .png with a transparent background, fill the background with a new color, resize the image and convert it to a .jpg.

Re: how do I make a multi resolution .ico file?

I wrote a rigorous way around this last year, but it slows the scripts right down. Instead I find it easier to update all my scripts at once after I install a new version of IM...

Re: Help to fix error "unbalanced parenthesis"

How in one exec command to compose a frame and to get result.png? It might be easier to understand what your code is doing if you bring the "image.png" in first. Then after it's in the working stack, build your dotted line rectangle inside the parentheses. At that point you have two images in the s...

Re: how do I make a multi resolution .ico file?

Hope this helps anyone looking to achieve this with some level of automation :D Using "IM 6.9.2-8 Q16 x64" or "IM 7.0.0-0 Q16 x64 2016-01-09" and Windows 7 Pro 64, this can be done with a batch file like this without creating the intermediate files... @echo off setlocal set IMDIR=c:\Program Files\I...

Possible bug with -interword-spacing in IM7

There seems to be a problem with the "-interword-spacing" operator in my current version of IM7 under Windows 7 Pro 64. Below are some commands to compare. (Note: I have it set up so when I run the "convert" command on my system it uses my IM6, and when I run "magick" it uses my IM7.) Using this "co...

Re: identify JPEG2000

I believe that dlemstra just gave you the link to the patch that you would need to edit and recompile IM. If you got Imagemagick 7 from the Imagemagick web site betas, it probably does not yet have that patch compiled into it. dlemstra can correct me, if I am wrong. I always download pre-compiled v...

Re: identify JPEG2000

I get the same "0B" result when testing on various JP2 image files using IM7 version "ImageMagick 7.0.0-0 Q16 x64 2016-01-02".
