Re: Possible bug with -interword-spacing in IM7

I have now made several tests with "ImageMagick-7.0.0-0~beta20160207-Q16-HDRI-x64-static.exe", and the problem with the "-interword-spacing" operator appears to be resolved. Thanks again to everyone whose hard work makes this piece of software possible.

Re: Basic Wndows scripting problem

How do I force the script to use (like an ordinary cmd window does) the ImageMagick directory as source for the IM functions? You may just need to add the ImageMagick directory to your PATH. Check that by entering the command "path" at the command line. If you don't see an ImageMagick directory in ...

Re: Possible bug with -interword-spacing in IM7

The "-interword-spacing" operator still seems to have no effect in Windows binary beta version "ImageMagick 7.0.0-0 Q16 x64 2016-01-31", downloaded and installed from the file "ImageMagick-7.0.0-0~beta20160203-Q16-HDRI-x64-static.exe".

Re: Sort images into folders based on resolution AND size

I will have a folder where people submit images. I need Imagemagick to sort the images into "accepted" or "rejected" subfolders based on the following criteria: 1. 1200+ pixel dimension in either height or width 2. 200 or more pixels per inch. If these criteria are met, the image is moved to the "a...

Re: Get the value of the comparison in the batch script variable

Sorry, as I said I'm pretty nooby, i just wondering is there a no ready solution for such applied task as transfer of value of a variable for Windows users, because I did not find it in the manual. Getting the output of a command into a variable in Windows is not a very simple task. I'm running Ima...

Re: How to use -set

Or is there a similar way to do what I want in v6? I use a *nix emulator running the "bash" shell, which should be the default shell on most current Macs. The code below should get you what you want by using a shell variable as fmw42 suggested.. IMG="input.jpg" WATERMARK="watermark.jpg" WIDTH=`conv...

Re: How to use -set

I do not know the limitation of using -fx expressions, but for this one, why not just do magick input.jpg -set option:my_w %[fx:w+200] \( watermark.jpg -resize %[fx:my_w] \) -composite output.jpg Yep, that's how I usually handle it when the situation is that straightforward. It can be trickier when...

Re: How to use -set

I'm willing to upgrade to v7. I'll be running this on a Mac. I'm not seeing that on the downloads page, would MacPorts support building that version? (I'm really new to Macs, doing this for my wife, so all pointers for this would be greatly appreciated). It's not even so much about the FX expressio...

Re: How to use -set

I believe that IM 7 will allow resize to use fx expressions I was writing my reply while you were posting this. My experience with IM7 so far shows that an FX expression of the construction "%[fx:w+h]" will work almost anywhere, and can include most of the symbols described on THIS PAGE . And the "...

Re: How to use -set

I'm trying to use convert to append two images. I want the 2nd image to match the width of the first. [...] What am I missing here? Is there a better technique? If you're willing to move into ImageMagick v7, your command may work just the way you're trying to do it. I have beta version "ImageMagick...

Re: Making Printable Metadata Labels

Hi there! Super new to IM, but I could not find an easy way to do this in the docs. I would like to create metadata labels to stick on the back of my photos. The photos have already been printed, so I do not want an overlay. This can be done, but the difficulty would depend on several things. You s...

Re: Resizing, Cropping & Converting a series of Images to Patrol Cycle Animated GIF + adding Watermark

I have a series of images that I want to convert to an animated gif that plays forwards and backwards. In the process I also want to resize and crop them. I'd like the animated gif to have a watermark. I'm using "ImageMagick 6.9.3-1 Q16 x64" on Windows 7 64, so for my test I transposed your backsla...

Re: Possible bug with -interword-spacing in IM7

Now it appears the behavior of the "-interword-spacing" has also changed between the Windows versions IM 6.9.2-8 Q16 x64 and IM 6.9.3-1 Q16 x64. There is a clear difference in spacing between words when running these two commands using IM 6.9.2-8 Q16 x64... convert -pointsize 36 label:"This is a tes...
