Re: Converting a grayscale image to a colored image

Thanks for the reply. The first option will work. I am confused though. I thought that the way image magic worked was like a stack so that convert -size 1650x1275 xc:"#ffff99" was the first "layer" and BG_SC1_Design_03.png would be the second layer so that +level-colors blue,white would on work on t...

Converting a grayscale image to a colored image

I have a grayscale image. I would like to convert it to another color, say blue. I would now want the black to be blue and the others to be shades of blue. How would I do that?

Re: creating large pdf or postscript files

I have 8 gig of memory and it still crashes at 2 gig if I don't do the -limit. Is there a reason for this and is there a way to use all 8 gig's? I was think...
