Win32 8-bit binary

Where can I find a Win32 8-bit binary?

I have Wk2 & don't have any 16-bit images.

You could take version 6.6.3-7 (the last Q8 binary for Win32) - if you don't need the latest patches.
ImageMagick-6.6.3-7-Q8-windows-dll.exe

I am also looking for the win32 Q8 dll version. We're simply processing tiffs and jpegs so all we need is the Q8 version, so I'd rather not have to use the extra precision and overhead of the Q16 version. It seems strange there is an 64-bit Q8, but no 32-bit Q8.

I appreciate Drarakel sharing his copy, but that doesn't address the issue of how to get the newest version if a necessary fix comes out.

Thanks,
Gary

Hi magick, could you please comment on the windows binary distribution question that has been raised? What was the rationale for having a win64 Q8, but not a win32 Q8?

Thanks,
Gary
