That appears to be the case as liquid-rescale runs fine.

odd warning IM 6.5.3

I just wanted to bring this to your attention in case there is anything significant about it. I am getting an odd warning at the end of the make in IM 6.5.3-x Mac OSX Tiger, for each new compile of IM for the last few releases that was not there in older releases (that I recall). But I don't know ex...

Re: Background keeps black black black (-background blue)

Isn't 'convert' an operation in and of itself? What I meant was you need some "option" that is an "action" or "operator" option to apply the "setting" option used by the convert "command". Action operators such as -extent, -border, -flatten, etc See Anthony's page http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/r...

Re: Background keeps black black black (-background blue)

I believe that -background is setting not an operator. So by itself it will not do anything. It needs a corresponding operator to do something (like -extent, etc).

Post your image and tell us what you want to do with it.

Re: check if a tiff file is almost white

Look at string formats, in particular the mean. If the mean is near quantum range (65535 on Q16 IM), then it is near white. http://www.imagemagick.org/script/escape.php convert -size 100x100 xc:white white.png convert white.png -format "%[mean]" info: 65535 alternate result if near 1 val=`convert wh...

Re: select only border!

Sorry I don't understand what you want as the result? Is it just an outline of the letters? If so use -edge (see http://www.imagemagick.org/script/command-line-options.php#edge) after you current processing to make black and white. convert ok3.png -background white -flatten -edge 1 -negate ok3_fw_e1...

Re: bit per pixel

All I can say is there seems to be a fair amount of complaints recently about bmp format. Search the user, developer and bugs forums. I don't know if these are bugs are limitations or misinterpretations. I am having trouble converting from png to bmp8 myself and others cannot even get identify to wo...

Re: Can't run Fred's texteffect script

you can run my texteffect script using PHP "exec" command with little change. The mathematics of many of the techniques are in some of my other scripts, such as 3Drotate, pincushion, etc. But texteffect is not just one algorithm, but a mix of many of those. Also there is much on Anthony's web page h...

Re: possible bugs in PNG8 IM 6.5.3-2

Is there any further information about these two bug reports? Have they been validated? Are they bugs or am I misunderstanding something?

Re: Identify does not display any result for bmp

I don't know the answer about whether convert -format "%m" info: is more computationally burdensome that identify -format "%m". I would doubt it was much. But hopefully Magick or Anthony can answer that question . I still have no idea why you are the only one having this difficulty with that bmp ima...

Re: Minor cleanup of a scanned image

If the scan is always the same, then cropping or masking are the only two immediate thoughts. I don't think there is any general "smudge" removal algorithm that I know about. But a Google search might offer something.

Re: Convert bmp to jpeg

what version of IM convert -list configure report what version and what quantum-depth Note depth is the depth per channel. I don't think 24 is supported. If you are using IM quantum depth 8, your only choice is 8, or 1 (binary). If quantum depth 16, then 16, 8, 1. If quantum-depth 32, then 32, 16, 8...
