Re: Cannot get "-set option:wizsize '%wx%h'" to work

Oohhhhhh.... Thanks a bunch, Fred!

In this case, all this time since IM7 is out, I didn't really grok the fine differences of running 'magick ...' and 'magick convert ...' !
I'll have to dig deeper into the docu then. Any hints with direct links? Otherwise, I'll dig myself....

Re: Cannot get "-set option:wizsize '%wx%h'" to work

I may add the following info. Running this command:

Code: Select all

magick convert wizard:        \
  -set option:wizsize '%wx%h' \
  -print "%[wizsize]\n"       \
  null:
works as expected and prints:

Code: Select all

Cannot get "-set option:wizsize '%wx%h'" to work

In the IM documentation about the '-set'/'+set' command line options (here: https://www.imagemagick.org/script/command-line-options.php#set ) we can find this example: magick convert rose: \ -set option:rosesize '%wx%h' \ -delete 0 \ label:'%[rosesize]' \ label_size_of_rose.gif This works as expecte...

Re: png with transparency to eps

I tried it but unfortunatelly the transparency is also lost. I end up with a white background. What sort of "transparency"? -- You should know that PostScript does not natively support transparency. (Incidentally, this was one of the motivations for Adobe to leave PostScript behind and develop a ne...

Re: Building IM 7 on OS X Mavericks fails with "make[1]: *** [coders/coders_aai_la-aai.lo] Error 1"

I checked out a fresh instance from SVN (old one would keep choking about the "invalid XML" -- I guess somehow my old checkout was corrupted).

This one does build flawlessly.

Check MagickCore/method-attributes.h. There is a file named method-attribute.h (not method-attribute s .h ). An identically named file is in MagickWand/method-attribute.h . Do you see the MagickCoreSignature define? No, in neither of the above files. If so, your build is picking up an older method-...

to convert say a range of say the 1st to 5th page of a multipage pdf into single images is fairly straight forward using:
convert file.pdf[1-5] file.jpg
Actually, page counting is zero-based. So 1st to 5th page will require to use [0-4].

[1-5] will give you the second to sixth page.

The -1 is the last image in the sequence. see http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/basics/#list_ops
To do fifth to last, you'd actually have to specify file.pdf[4--1] -- with file.pdf[5--1] you'd get sixth to last page.

Building IM 7 on OS X Mavericks fails with "make[1]: *** [coders/coders_aai_la-aai.lo] Error 1"

I'm building ImageMagick 7 (current SVN checkout r19059) on a Mac OS X Mavericks (10.9.5) system (with lots of MacPorts software). Up until a few days ago this worked on a regular basis. Since then I see this: kp@mbp:$> ./configure [...my options...] && make [....] ==================================...

Re: Mac Mavericks install using MacPorts fails

Try:

Code: Select all

sudo port selfupdate
sudo port list imagemagick
sudo port info imagemagick
(Strictly speaking, `sudo` is only required for the first command, and isn't required for the last two commands -- but I want to see if it is in your $PATH.)

[Documentation] Small typo on Website

There is a small typo here: http://www.imagemagick.org/script/formats.php

It abbreviates the newly supported format Better Portable Graphics as BGP (wrong) instead of BPG (correct).

Which version was the first to support BPG, BTW?
