Re: What's needed for fonts to be seen

Yep, I do have that type-ghostscript.xml, with the fonts listed within. And with-gs-font-dir pointed to it. Still...nothing when I type convert -list font I'm dying here. What is needed for convert to see the fonts, either ghostscript (via type-ghostscript.xml, or the system fonts (which are include...

Re: What's needed for fonts to be seen

I appreciate the reply! Hmm..I was wanting to redistribute the fonts (which if license is included my understanding is I can with the 35 or so "free" gs ones). But...I certainly -could- also not redistribute fonts at all, and have IM pick up the OSX system fonts on a given system using that pearl sc...

What's needed for fonts to be seen

When compiling IM, what are the most basic requirements to use the Ghostscript supplied fonts? Is Freetype necessary? Is gslib necessary? Does this change if building a portable IM (with no files external to my install dir?) I'm clueless on font side of things. Trying to compile a stand-alone (porta...

Static (really static!) build

Since the forum title mentions rants... The lack of support for creating a static (portable) ImageMagick build is frustrating. Instructions on getting the delegates together to actually build working, non-dependent binaries is a horribly documented, error-prone mess. For example, trying to build Uni...

Font Copyright Questions

Hi, I'm confused about Font copyright issues as regards to ImageMagick. On Windows, is the precompiled binary (convert.exe) using Freetype's Auto-hinting when rendering Windows True type fonts? And if so, does anyone know what version of Convert.exe stopped using the Apple patented method of hinting...

Thanks for the reply--I searched based on your TrueColor suggestion--(it looks like it's not "-colorspace TrueColor", though, but "-type TrueColor" that's the option you meant.) But...it still doesn't offer a "pass through" option. Using -type TrueColor forces the image to a truecolor (3 channel) on...

Stop reducing my colors!

Hi, I'm using a somewhat older version of ImageMagick, on the pc --5.5.7 Hopefully, that won't affect any possible answers to this hopefully simple question. When using convert.exe on an RGB file that is composed of all neutral values, the utility takes it upon itself to reduce it to a single-channe...
