Was quite straight forward when I did it.
Download and install XAMPP

Download and install ImageMagick - http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binar ... hp#windows
( may need to restart PC ):
1.Start XAMPP
2.Run this code in your browser to prove it is installed and working.
<?php
header("Content-Type: text/plain");
system("convert -version");
?>
3.Use the code like this and run it in your browser:
<?php
exec("convert input.jpg -thumbnail 100x100 output.jpg");
?>

Note: You will need to use " not ' when using draw or annotate as this is a windows installation. The " will need escaping if you are writing the code like exec("convert ......
localhost must be running for the code to work.
