Hi Fred,

I would like to know the right set of command to achieve skew of an image/document?

Kindly suggest some commands with examples of the image/document?

It would be highly appreciated

Best Regards,
Shubhra

I have moved this to the User's forum since it has nothing to do with my scripts.

See Imagemagick -shear at https://imagemagick.org/script/command- ... .php#shear

Hi Fred,

Thank you!
I will be more glad if you could give me the exact command and the example image, which has been skewed. Please!

The command was in the link and the image is one of the Imagemagick internal images (named logo: with a colon). Just replace logo: with your image.suffix and it should work. Try simply

Code: Select all

convert logo: -background black -shear 20x0 logo-sheared.png
