Ease of Use in RHEL6+ for import.. Howto ?

Post by ghat » 2017-09-27T07:15:06-07:00


I love the import command. I have been a avid user of Linux for over 22 years now, and also started dabbling into OSX (not macOS) recently.

In a mac
Shift-Alt-4 => changes the mouse to a cross hair (similar to import) and you can click OR select area (similar to import), and the file is saved to a auto-generated filename in ~/Desktop/
Ctrl-Shift-Alt-4 => does exactly the above, but instead of saving it to a file, it copies the image in the "CLIPBOARD"

How can I do this exact thing with imagemagick-import.

If I can figure the command/options, I can configure similar shortcut in my X-session.

Code: Select all

$>: which import
$>: import --version
Version: ImageMagick 6.5.4-7 2014-01-30 Q16 OpenMP http://www.imagemagick.org
Copyright: Copyright (C) 1999-2009 ImageMagick Studio LLC
$>: rpm -qa | grep redhat.release

Any clues/hints/help
