Settings and Operations, the relationship?

Questions and postings pertaining to the usage of ImageMagick regardless of the interface. This includes the command-line utilities, as well as the C and C++ APIs. Usage questions are like "How do I use ImageMagick to create drop shadows?".

You are right, the documentation is unclear about the color reduction operator. The options -colors, -dither, and -treedepth all are settings but they trigger a color reduction operator if an image is available.

In other words these are hold overs from the IM version 5 and before situation.

One of the reasons I have not actually gotten around to generating the planned section about these operators at the bottom of the "Colors" section of IM examples. I did however give a few examples in the "GIF transparency Handling" area.
