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

       convert input-file [options] output-file

       ImageMagick®, 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 distri‐
       bution 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 manipulat‐
       ing 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 between image formats as well as resize an image,	 blur,
	      crop,  despeckle,	 dither,  draw	on, flip, join, re-sample, and
	      much more.


	      describes the format and characteristics of one  or  more	 image


	      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.


	      overlaps one image over another.


	      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.


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


	      is a lightweight tool to stream one or more pixel components  of
	      the image or portion of the image to your choice of storage for‐
	      mats. 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.


	      displays an image or image sequence on any X server.


	      animates an image sequence on any X server.


	      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.


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