IM -- an Dupont offspring?

Post here to shower the ImageMagick developers with praise or discuss how you could have done a better job if you developed ImageMagick. Or talk about how Photoshop is better than ImageMagick. Even complain about how no one answered your postings in the Users forum. Venting and musings welcomed here.

IM -- an Dupont offspring?

Post by whugemann » 2012-02-22T11:19:37-07:00

At http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/ImageMagick the authors claim ImageMagick to be an offspring of a Dupont project, i.e. originally being property of the société du Pont de Nemours et compagnie. Is that true? I've never read about that anwhere else.

BTW: The Wikipedia articles are all very short and rather deviant from each other (I read English, German, French, Italian and Spanish). I think it would help if at least the English version would give some more information about the project.

Yes, ImageMagick originated at DuPont. See http://www.imagemagick.org/script/history.php.
