image rotation

Post by dav1988 » 2018-03-01T14:29:07-07:00

i should verify if a small pic, cutted out from a bigger image, was rotated of an angle from the original. can i do this by comparing the big original image with the small image obtained from the first one? how can i do?

thanks

Please, always provide your IM version and platform when asking questions, since syntax may differ. Also provide your exact command line and if possible your images.

ImageMagick has a compare function, but in general it does not compare different sizes of the same image or rotated versions. If there is no rotation or scaling, then compare can find where a small image resides inside a larger image.

However, the compare -metric phash may do what you want if the smaller image is a scaled and rotated version of the larger image and not a subsection.
