Re: workflow: resize, watermark, caption

I have worked on a similar approach for a number of years. I use this as my "learn a new language" project. I do the following: 1) Program 1: Read a directory looking for photos (.png, jpg, tiff, etc) 2) Write the names of the photos to a small editable file 3) You edit the file and put in short cap...

Error message, can't find configure file, mingw version of IM

I am using ImageMagick under minGW emulation. I installed it by pacman -S mingw-w64-x86_64-imagemagick in the msys2 console. All went well. After installing, I got an error convert.exe: unable to find configure file 'configure.xml': stuff I found the file under /mingw64/lib/ImageMagick.7.0.6/config-...

Re: error message using convert

Fred:

Thanks for your comment and suggestion. The error was caused by a setup malfunction in the install program. I made the error go away by copying the confingure.xml file from one place to a proper location. What a PITA.

Re: color-matrix

Those help some, but not completely. In the designstacks.net/color-matrix tutorial, the matrix is 4x5 (r x c). In the imagemagic "help" (which is not clear or specific), the matrix is 6x6 with 2 commas. In one discussion, fmw says" I think snibgo is correct, in IM the offsets are in the range 0 to 1...

color-matrix

I am looking for a clear explanation of the color-matrix option. I am trying to convert GIMP-like choices into ImageMagick commands. In GIMP, you can modify the levels of a color. This seems difficult to do in ImageMagick. I would like to use color-matrix, but the explanations are not clear or easy ...

Re: Annotate errors - windows 7 x64

OK, that worked. Is that always the case? Only " is a text quote?

The other thing that doesn't work is

-annotate +0+8 @testtext.txt

where testtext.txt has the text in it.

Syntax of convert command

I am learning ImageMagick to do a number of tasks. In working with the convert command, I am a little stymied. I find a lot of examples of how to do things, but I have found few discussions of the command which explain the operations systematically (YMMV). Clearly the command is extremely complex, w...

Re: Interactive image editing with journaling

Yes, the forum is very helpful, and persons like yourself seem quite willing to pitch in and lend a hand. It comes down to the learning curve, and getting people to be interested.

Interactive image editing with journaling

In the world of image manipulation, there are many interactive tools (GIMP, Photoshop, etc), which use a WYSIWYG editing approach. There is also ImageMagick which uses a scripting approach.

Is there any interactive editor which also outputs ImageMagick code which can then be saved for later re-use?

Re: Getting started with Fred's Scripts

Thanks, Fred. I am doing that. I am starting a large project. I have a bunch of family photos (stop me if you've heard this before), and wish to put them into good order. 1) What's the best format to convert .jpg photos into? It looks like .png would be a good choice. 2) Is there a good discussion s...

Re: Getting started with Fred's Scripts

You have a very good suggestion. I went and looked at the IM usage page and right there, immediately, a simple command to do what I want with less complexity. Thanks.
