Re: Syntax problem

IM generally doesn't like extra spaces, try something like this:
convert zelda_text.jpg \(zelda_text_mask.gif -background white -alpha shape \) -flatten zelda_mask_overlay.jpg

could be the backslashes too, not sure though since I don't use them like this

Re: GPU vs CPU on command line benchmark

*I'm not an expert and someone may have better information* The link you posted points to OpenMP, a CPU technology, whereas GPUs use either OpenCL or CUDA for high performance crunching operations. ** I would also guess due to the nature of image manipulations CPUs are the best option, if only to ac...

Re: looking for docs for PRINT command

It would seem this is a pretty obscure IM function, I will keep looking for another solution (it is surprisingly hard to find a way to send prints to printers in an automated way).

Re: looking for docs for PRINT command

IM on Windows, whatever version I need to make it happen ;) from the page I linked: PRINT Send image to your computer printer Unix users may set the PRINTER (for 'lpr') or LPDEST (for 'lp') environment variables to select the desired printer. I haven't tried anything yet, just looking for docs to se...

looking for docs for PRINT command

The only place I've been able to find anything is here:
https://www.imagemagick.org/script/formats.php
Is there a more comprehensive doc or examples concerning the PRINT function available? Thanks

Re: Has the -Profile function changed from older versions?

Ah Fred, I should not do coding at the end of the work day because I get sloppy- your initial advice worked, which is also the second post you did. I appreciate your help and patience :)

Re: Has the -Profile function changed from older versions?

Thanks for the quick reply, I'll give it a shot. The version is in the post above, Windows OS Wow the version I am using looks to be the ancient one, my bad- putting the -profile at the end is not working either. Weird thing is that I know this was working properly earlier because I had matched prin...

Has the -Profile function changed from older versions?

I feel as though when doing this about 2 years ago my profiles were being applied with this code, now they are not. Source image has no profile according to identify, neither does the converted one. convert -size 3000x2400 xc: ( image.jpg -rotate 90 -resize x2100 -gravity center -crop 2700x2100+0+0 ...

Some specifics: Be able to check that a percentage of the image is one color and flag it Be able to define "one color" as a small range of colors, as it would seem that what looks li...

Running IM from .bat files, some questions

I am currently writing IM commands to .bat files which then get run when they appear in a folder, I would like to know how to do a couple of things. Is there a way to know when IM is done writing the images so that the next (non-IM) command can proceed safely, or is this something done automatically...

Re: How to ignore the .db file?

I am using convert and identify as my main commands. So far I found an ugly solution, but it seems to work: putting "On Error Resume Next" in the beginning of the asp file, which passes the thumbs.db file. Supposedly in vbscript you can exclude files, but the code I found wasn't working. I did get a...

How to ignore the .db file?

I have a bit of code that checks images for colorspace, but it always errors out before finishing a job because it wants to process the thunmbs.db file that windows generates whenever images are added to a folder. There is an option in windows not to create the thumb file, but it seems flaky at best...

Re: error, missing dll (IM via VBScript)

I found the issue, the script is trying to run the thumbs.db file after all of the images- disabling thumbnail caching fixes this. I'm not sure if it's an IM issue- on an ancient version of IM from 2013 the .db was registered as OK by my script, but in the new version, 6.9.0, an error gets thrown up...

Re: error, missing dll

The static version is similar,

Code: Select all

no decode delegate for this image format `DB'
I think maybe IM is seeing a file I can't? I am testing on only jpgs
