 NAME
      ImageMagick - is a free software suite for the creation, modification
      and display of bitmap images.

 SYNOPSIS
      convert input-file [options] output-file

 OVERVIEW
      ImageMagick[rg], is a software suite to create, edit, and compose
      bitmap images. It can read, convert and write images in a variety of
      formats (about 100) including GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PNG, PDF, PhotoCD,
      TIFF, and DPX. 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
      B\['e]zier curves.

      ImageMagick is free software delivered as a ready-to-run binary
      distribution or as source code that you can freely use, copy, modify,
      and distribute. Its license is compatible with the GPL. It runs on all
      major operating systems.

      The functionality of ImageMagick is typically utilized from the
      command line or you can use the features from programs written in your
      favorite programming language. Choose from these interfaces:
      MagickCore (C), MagickWand (C), ChMagick (Ch), Magick++ (C++), JMagick
      (Java), L-Magick (Lisp), PascalMagick (Pascal), PerlMagick (Perl),
      MagickWand for PHP (PHP), PythonMagick (Python), RMagick (Ruby), or
      TclMagick (Tcl/TK). With a language interface, use ImageMagick to
      modify or create images automagically and dynamically.

      ImageMagick includes a number of command-line utilities for
      manipulating images. Most of you are probably accustom to editing
      images one at a time with a graphical user interface (GUI) with such
      programs as gimp or Photoshop. However, a GUI is not always
      convenient. Suppose you want to process an image dynamically from a
      web script or you want to apply the same operations to many images or
      repeat a specific operation at different times to the same or
      different image. For these types of operations, the command-line image
      processing utility is appropriate.

      In the paragraphs below, find a short description for each command-
      line tool.Cl ick on the program name to get details on the program
      usage and a list of comman d-line options that alters how the program
      performs. If you are just getting acq uainted with ImageMagick, start
      at the top of the list, the convert program, and
       work your way down. Also be sure to peruse Anthony Thyssen's tutorial
      on how to
       use ImageMagick utilities to convert, compose, or edit images from
      the command- line.

      convert

           convert between image formats as well as resize an image, blur,
           crop, despeckle, dither, draw on, flip, join, re-sample, and much
           more.

      identify

           describes the format and characteristics of one or more image
           files.

      mogrify

           resize an image, blur, crop, despeckle, dither, draw on, flip,
           join, re-sample, and much more. Mogrify overwrites the original
           image file, whereas, convert writes to a different image file.

      composite

           overlaps one image over another.

      montage

           create a composite image by combining several separate images.
           The images are tiled on the composite image optionally adorned
           with a border, frame, image name, and more.

      compare

           mathematically and visually annotate the difference between an
           image and its reconstruction..


      stream

           is a lightweight tool to stream one or more pixel components of
           the image or portion of the image to your choice of storage
           formats. It writes the pixel components as they are read from the
           input image a row at a time making stream desirable when working
           with large images or when you require raw pixel components.


      display

           displays an image or image sequence on any X server.

      animate

           animates an image sequence on any X server.

      import

           saves any visible window on an X server and outputs it as an
           image file. You can capture a single window, the entire screen,
           or any rectangular portion of the screen.

      conjure

           interprets and executes scripts written in the Magick Scripting
           Language (MSL).
