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\""

Re: Creating a 1 bit tiff with good grayscale

One bit images can be dithered, if this is what you desire, see http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/quanti ... -threshold.

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

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...

Re: Imagemagick Wiki

I would not recommend using wiki software for that. I set up a MediaWiki in German language, which deals with the subject of accident reconstruction. There are about 300 people in Germany in this job and I could not get more than a handful of them to contribute. Instead, we had to cope with all thos...

Re: Is "Focus Stacking" possible with IM ?

I am using CombineZP under Win 7 32 bit without problems, so there still must be 32 bit versions around. I cannot see how the trick could be performed with IM, even by use of a complex script. You would have to identify the (non-rectangular) regions in which some photo has the sharpest focus and the...

Re: Montage's file name globbing under Windows

I have just checked this again and still found the newest IM build to behave differntly to older versions. I gave in and rewrote my DOS batch file, such that I don't have to incorporate folder names with umlauts. This means that I now make the subfolders the current folder one by one and then genera...

Re: Converting native PDF to image

Are you sure that the signature is a raster image in the original document? It could also be a vector format, say a glyph in a dedicated font file containing the signatures of all employees. This would cause detoriation when being converted to a raster image.

Version info should include 64 or 32 bit build

I have been using IM under Windows since XP, both on 32 and 64 bit computers. My Windows scripts (batch or VBS) are used by about 30 different users, working in different places. The command line option -version does not provide really much information and -verbose does not seem to change this. Espe...

Re: ImageMagic crash on windows 7

I think this issue was already treated in http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=22956. Basically, Windows will automatically run the application associated with the file format specified. If you are working on image manipulation, IrfanView will probably be installed on your...

Re: how to make an avi from a series of images

If you want to create an AVI, I assume that you are working under Windows. In this case, the duo AVIsynth/VirtualDub is probably the easiest solution, see http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/windows/#auxiliary. In AVIsynth there is a special function called ImageSource that does this job most easily. T...

Re: scanned paper pdfs and original image extraction.

There is special software that extracts the single pages from a PDF scan. Under Windows, this would be xpdf, more specificly pdfimages, which extracts the single pages from your document as .ppm files. The DOS command would be: pdfimages your.pdf trunc and would spit out trunc-001.pbm trunc-002.pbm ...

Re: Contrast stretch for an arbitrary quadrangle

I have just tried a solution based on -region. This basically works, as -region obvisously is what you call a "read mask", i.e. the histogramm corrections are based on the region selected. So I can "select" the darker region of the image, make the desired corrections and then come back to the outer ...
