magick -size 640x480 logo.gif
There is no output image and -size 640x480 does nothing without a command such as xc:red. Try creating your logo.gif from the IM internal logo: image. See http://www.imagemagick.org/script/forma ... tin-images

Code: Select all

magick logo: logo.gif
Then

Code: Select all

magick logo.gif -rotate 90 logo_rot90.gif
Each command needs an input and output image, though the output name can be the same as the input name.

If you want to resize the image, then

Code: Select all

magick logo.gif -resize 50% logo_resized.gif
