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.

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.

In v7, "-density" can use a calculation. For example:

Code: Select all

magick in.png -density %[fx:w/2] out.pdf
This will make the PDF 2 inches wide.
Works fine, thanks.

In Windows, you must install the legacy components to run convert in IM 7
The download page doesn't contain "legacy". Can you explain?
Alternately, just replace convert with magick and IM 7 should run fine.
Yes, thanks.

Installed the last version but old one still comes up.

I just installed ImageMagick-7.0.5-0-Q8-x64-dll.exe but when I say convert -version I still obtain ImageMagick 6.8.9-4 Q8 x64 2014-06-22. How can I cause "convert" to fetch the last version?

Re: Converting from jpg or tif to pdf: size of the pdf

"-density" will change the physical size (in inches or centimetres) of the PDF without changing the pixels. Eg: convert rose: -density 300 out.pdf Does that answer the question? Yes it does. With Acrobat Reader, Document properties, I see the document size decrease when the density increases. But I...
