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


 SYNOPSIS
      magick [options|input-file]... output-file magick-script script-file
      [script-arguments]...


 OVERVIEW
      Use ImageMagick[rg] to create, edit, compose, or convert bitmap
      images. It can read and write images in a variety of formats (over
      200) including PNG, JPEG, GIF, HEIC, TIFF, DPX, EXR, WebP, Postscript,
      PDF, and SVG. Use ImageMagick to resize, flip, mirror, rotate,
      distort, shear and transform images, adjust image colors, apply
      various special effects, or draw text, lines, polygons, ellipses and
      B['e]zier curves.

      The functionality of ImageMagick is typically utilized from the
      command-line.  It can also be accessed from programs written in your
      favorite language using the corresponding interface: G2F (Ada),
      MagickCore (C), MagickWand (C), ChMagick (Ch), ImageMagickObject
      (COM+), Magick++ (C++), JMagick (Java), JuliaIO (Julia), L-Magick
      (Lisp), Lua (LuaJIT), NMagick (Neko/haXe), Magick.NET (.NET),
      PascalMagick (Pascal), PerlMagick (Perl), MagickWand for PHP (PHP),
      IMagick (PHP), PythonMagick (Python), magick (R), RMagick (Ruby), or
      TclMagick (Tcl/TK). With a language interface, use ImageMagick to
      modify or create images dynamically and automagically.

      ImageMagick utilizes multiple computational threads to increase
      performance.  It can read, process, or write mega-, giga-, or tera-
      pixel image sizes.

      ImageMagick is free software delivered as a ready-to-run binary
      distribution, or as source code that you may use, copy, modify, and
      distribute in both open and proprietary applications. It is
      distributed under a derived Apache 2.0 license.

      The ImageMagick development process ensures a stable API and ABI.
      Before each ImageMagick release, we perform a comprehensive security
      assessment that includes memory error, thread data race detection, and
      continuous fuzzing to help prevent security vulnerabilities.

      The current release is ImageMagick 7.0.8-11. It runs on Linux,
      Windows, Mac Os X, iOS, Android OS, and others.  We continue to
      maintain the legacy release of ImageMagick, version 6, at
      https://legacy.imagemagick.org.

      ImageMagick is a suite of command-line utilities for manipulating
      images.  You may have edited images at one time or another using
      programs such as GIMP or Photoshop, which expose their functionality
      mainly through a graphical user interface. However, a GUI program is
      not always the right tool. 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, a
      command-line utility is more suitable.

      The remaining of this manpage is a list of the available command-line
      utilities and their short descriptions.  For further documentation
      conserning a particular command and its options, consult the
      corresponding manpage. If you are just getting aquainted with
      ImageMagick, start at the top of that list, the magick(1) program, and
      work your way down. Also, make sure to check out Anthony Thyssen's
      tutorial on how to use ImageMagick utilities to convert, compose, or
      edit images from the command-line.


      magick
           Read images into memory, perform operations on those images, and
           write them out to either the same or some other image file
           format.  The "-script" option can be used to switch from
           processing command line options, to reading options from a file
           or pipeline.


      magick-script
           This command is similar to magick(1) but with an implied "-
           script" option.  It is useful in special "#!/usr/bin/env magick-
           script" scripts that search for the magick-script(1) command
           anywhere along the users PATH, rather than in a hardcorded
           command location.


      convert
           Available for Backward compatiblity with ImageMagick's version 6
           convert(1).  Essentially, it is just an alias to a restrictive
           form of the magick(1) command, which should be used instead.


      mogrify
           Resize an image, blur, crop, despeckle, dither, draw on, flip,
           join, re-sample, and much more. This command overwrites the
           original image file, whereas convert(1) writes to a different
           image file.

      identify
           Describe the format and characteristics of one or more image
           files.


      composite
           Overlap one image over another.


      montage
           Create a composite image by combining several separate ones. 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
           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(1) desirable when working with large images,
           or when you require raw pixel components.


      display
           Display an image or image sequence on any X server.


      animate
           Animate an image sequence on any X server.


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


      conjure
           Interpret and execute scripts written in the Magick Scripting
           Language (MSL).
