Is there a Q8 binary for OS X

Questions and postings pertaining to the usage of ImageMagick regardless of the interface. This includes the command-line utilities, as well as the C and C++ APIs. Usage questions are like "How do I use ImageMagick to create drop shadows?".

We do not include a Mac OS X Q8 binary, perhaps someone else has one. You could try downloading a version from Fink. Or compile from source. The only problems is that ImageMagick works best if it has access to its delegate libraries which are generally not readily available under Mac OS X (e.g. PNG, JPEG, TIFF, etc).
