Rotate 5 degrees:

Code: Select all

convert -density 288 cross.pdf -colorspace sRGB +repage -virtual-pixel White -distort SRT '5' -alpha remove rotate-pdf-1-5deg-out.pdf
Rotates the image

Rotate -5 degrees output with same command as above on the resulting pdf:

Code: Select all

convert -density 288 rotate-pdf-1-5deg-out.pdf -colorspace sRGB +repage -virtual-pixel White -distort SRT '-5' -alpha remove rotate-pdf-1-5deg-out-rev.pdf
Produces a page with 3 small images.

Version: ImageMagick 6.9.9-10 Q16 x64 Win 8.1

What version of IM on what platform?

With v6.9.9-50 on Windows 8.1, I get the expected result with only one cross.

Still seeing issue with multi-paged pdf.


The output is proper, it rotates each page, but the second rotate creates 3 little images per page, or single page.

Code: Select all

convert -density 288 crosses.pdf                    -colorspace sRGB +repage -virtual-pixel White -distort SRT '5' -alpha remove rotate-pdf-1-5deg-out.pdf
convert -density 288 rotate-pdf-1-5deg-out.pdf    -colorspace sRGB +repage -virtual-pixel White -distort SRT '-5' -alpha remove rotate-pdf-1-5deg-out-rev.pdf
convert -density 288 rotate-pdf-1-5deg-out.pdf[0] -colorspace sRGB +repage -virtual-pixel White -distort SRT '-5' -alpha remove rotate-pdf-1-5deg-out-rev-page0.pdf

Is your Ghostscript reasonably current, eg 9.19 or later?

You posted crosses.pdf in your dropbox. Processing that, I get two pages each with one cross.

I don't know why you are getting three crosses per page. I guess Ghostscript is doing this. To verify, try:

Code: Select all

convert -verbose  rotate-pdf-1-5deg-out.pdf x.png
This should create two files, named x-0.png and x-1.png, each with one cross. The text output will be something like:

Code: Select all

When I do this command on on multi-page crosses pdf:

Code: Select all

convert -verbose  crosses.pdf crosses.png
I get 2 images, with regular sized crosses, https://imgur.com/4BoShyL

Then rotating the same crosses, and running this:

Code: Select all

convert -verbose -density 288 crosses.pdf -colorspace sRGB +repage -virtual-pixel White -distort SRT '-5' -alpha remove rotate-pdf-1-5deg-out-x.pdf

Code: Select all

convert -verbose  rotate-pdf-1-5deg-out-x.pdf x.png
I get 2 images of little crosses, https://imgur.com/ogKExLQ


However, when doing the same commands on single page PDF, the results seem normal.

I can confirm wrong results of his two commands on IM 6.9.10.11 Q16 Mac OSX. I modified the first command slightly, but still get the bad results.

Code: Select all

convert -verbose -density 288 -units pixelsperinch -colorspace sRGB crosses.pdf -virtual-pixel White -distort SRT '-5' -alpha remove +repage rotate-pdf-1-5deg-out-x.pdf
convert -verbose  rotate-pdf-1-5deg-out-x.pdf x.png
The x-0.png and x-1.png are incorrect.

But if you do the same first command but save to png or tiff, it is correct. I get two large rotated crosses as separate images for the png and a two-page tiff.

Code: Select all

convert -verbose -density 288 -colorspace sRGB crosses.pdf -virtual-pixel White -distort SRT '-5' -alpha remove +repage rotate-pdf-1-5deg-out-x.png

Seems to be a problem how it's saving multi-paged pdfs?

Code: Select all

convert -verbose -density 288 crosses.pdf -colorspace sRGB -alpha remove out-2-x.pdf
convert -verbose  out-2-x.pdf x.png

Properly, you should use -colorspace sRGB before reading the PDF. But as in my commands above, it still produces bad results. So I would agree that it is a bug.

convert -verbose -density 288 -colorspace sRGB out-2-x.pdf  -alpha remove out-2-x-2nd-save.pdf
Another sample of a bad results, can't modify a pdf more then once.

I tried to clean it and recreate the pdf with `mutool clean -ggg` and `pdftk` concat, their results were not able to clean up the bad outputs.
