Re: Why is there an off-topic add at the top of each imagemagick.org page?

I make many Google searches about music and here I see ads about banking, savings etc. What is Google's logic? :lol:

Re: How can I convert a pdf page to jpg with its original resolution?

This PDF page was made with a scan but I don't know how it was converted to pdf. You understood my question. Could you please provide the link to pdfimages? Is it free?

Re: Using -density in a loop in a batch in Windows 10

Thanks. But in a more complicated case I have to use call for the parameter substitution to work well, e.g.

for /l %%a in (1,1,%1) do (
set /a mypage = "2*%%a +1"
call magick p%%mypage%.tif q%%mypage%%.pdf
)

This fails if you remove "call".

Using -density in a loop in a batch in Windows 10

magick chunk.tif -density %%[fx:w/8.26] chunk.pdf works fine but I want to make a loop for a series of images with this batch: for /l %%a in (1,1,%1) do ( call magick p%%a.tif -density %%[fx:w/8.26] q%%a.pdf ) and when I type mybatch 5 I obtain magick: invalid argument for option 'density' 'w/8.26]'...

Why does Imagemagick rant that much for non exisiting files?

If I say imagemagick nonexisting.jpg myresult.png I obtain 10 lines of rant with: unable to open... no image to apply... [3 times] unknown image property... [3 times]. Is'nt 1 line enough? Imagemagick won't let me save this rant saying imagemagick nonexisting.jpg myresult.png>myrant.txt.

What are these huge files when I use Imagemagick?

When I type magick -quality 100% -density 72 myimage.pdf myimage.jpg strange files with tens of MB size are created in C:\Documents and Settings\Coulon\Local Settings\Temp e.g. magick-3372SqB0j-S-pBcL1 size 29 MB. What are they here for? They are not automatically deleted when the conversion has fin...

Re: Why is there an off-topic add at the top of each imagemagick.org page?

If I write my own package including Imagemagick "A few other clarifications include[...] the license is compatible with the GPL V3". But Imagemagick is not GPL. Perhaps a question for a GPL forum :-)

And who or what decides which ad I see at every visit?

Re: Why is there an off-topic add at the top of each imagemagick.org page?

Sometimes in this discourse server I see an ad in French. So certainly not a link to Imagemagick!

Is Imagemagick a member of the Free Software Foundation, GNU Project or similar? I could'nt find its copyright status on the imagemagick site.

Re: Why is there an off-topic add at the top of each imagemagick.org page?

When I log into this forum and move back to either Imagemagick documentation page there is still an ad. Do you mean anything else when you say "logged in"?

What do you mean by "add"? Do you mean "ad" as in advertising?
Yes. Perhaps "banner" is better. At present it fills the space between "ImageMagick Convert, Edit, or Compose Bitmap Images" and Quick links, FAQ at the top of this forum page.

Re: Installed the last version but old one still comes up.

Note that with Windows XP the old grandmother's recipe is still needed for the changes to be effective, even with the "install legacy" click: restart your computer! :-) e.g. without the restart, "magick" is not recognized.
