Resolution set to 170 dpi, but Windows Explorer insits on 72 dpi

I often rescale photos in order to embed them in a Microsoft Word document and print them. My batch code is basically convert %1 -resize 1024x1024">" -quality 80%% -units PixelsPerInch -density 170 "%~dpn1_small.jpg" This works fine with most JPEGs, i.e. photos and JPEGs exported by Gimp, but fails ...

Re: Montage's file name globbing under Windows

I have just had another check on this subject after quite a while –- and found the issue solved in the current IM version. The batch script now works again like it did before the problem occured. No more problems with German umlauts in Montage's filename globbing.

Specify maximum JPEG quality

I see no way to specify the maximum (or minimal) JPEG quality. I often do bulk conversions of JPEG photographs, reducing their size in order to embed them in a Word document. The JPEG quality of normal photographs is something like 95%, so if I specify '-quality 90%', the bulk-converted photographs ...

Re: CMS for the Usage section of the IM website

OK, I'll try to produce a small demo, i.e. transfer a small amount of the Usage section into WordPress or alike and see where this will lead me. And in a few weeks we may have something to discuss about. You are probably right: Theoretical discussions are of limited use, one has to try to make thing...

Re: CMS for the Usage section of the IM website

I think that we should restrict the editors of this website to just a few people, so junk will (hopefully) no problem. This would be a problem if running it as a wiki, as I had to found out myself in another project. But in this case, we will just restrict the access, I guess. Jürgen and I have thou...

CMS for the Usage section of the IM website

Dear all, I've been corresponding with Anthony during the last months. In principle he told me, that he is not going to work on his Usage branch of IM's website any further. I proposed to transfer the entire Usage section into a CMS, such that it can be maintained be a set of persons in the future. ...

Re: Problem with compression on TIF files

I have just found out that this problem does not affect all PDFs. But I have some (small) PDFs that definitively produce this problem and could provide them for a closer inspection.

Re: Problem with compression on TIF files

I can verify the bug, but not the suggested work-around via -green-primary. I tried to place this option at various points of the command line, but with no effect on the resulting TIFF. It is correct that the effect only affects group4 coded TIFFs. My workaround is to open the files with IrfanView a...

Re: Version 6.8.5-9 of COM object install

I have a few older versions of the IM installer for Windows in backhand, but not exactly the one that you are asking for. The COM object is part of the standard installer package for Windows AFAIK. There is no archive for older precompiled versions, see http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/vi...

Re: Image to PDF/X-1a

IM uses Ghostscript to process PDF input and output, so this is probably a question of the options you define in delegates.xml for the gs command line. There seem to be options that get Ghostscript to produce PDF/X-1a compliant output.

Re: ImageMagick convert command not working through java

IMHO, this has little to do with IM, but with Java. Your escaping of the double quotes in the seond filename seems to be wrong: \"D:\\ImageComparison\\Copy\\All_Apps_Copy11.bmp\"" should either be "D:\\ImageComparison\\Copy\\All_Apps_Copy11.bmp" or "\"D:\\ImageComparison\\Copy\\All_Apps_Copy11.bmp\""

Neither the ZIP nor the 7z version contains a binary of IM. (ImageMagick-7.0.0-0~beta20140618-windows.*)

Is there a precompiled (Windows) version of IM 7 beta?

I guess, this questions disqualifies me for beta testing ;-) ... Does the beta version comprise the command line tools?
I would however give it a try, as long as I don't have to compile it.

Re: Is "Focus Stacking" possible with IM ?

I don't think that CombineZP scales the photos before mounting them together. They are just aligned in the first step. Ideas for coding can possibly be taken from Fiji/ImageJ, which also provides a Java module for focus stacking and is Open Source. Your basic idea – to calculate the sharpness in the...
