I wondered, is there a downloadable user guide for ImageMagick that contains all its many features in one document?

There is the ImageMagick usage examples by Antony and others, i have it downloaded using HTTrack website copier ( https://www.httrack.com ) for offline reading.

Just point httrack at https://imagemagick.org/Usage/ , there may be some settings you have to adjust such as subfolders and including/excluding certain files, but easy to use.

That's great, a very useful tool, thanks very much for that. It would be worth spending a bit of time putting them into a PDF, in fact.

Yes it's cool, and saves websites alot of bandwidth, not having visitors repeatedly downloading it all everytime they have to look something up.

I'm not much into PDF's, the html format is just fine, opens with any browser, not needing a pdf viewer.

Maybe a IM staff member could grab the imagemagick/usage with httrack and zip it up and make it available for download in the IM download section, that would be nice.

The images are created dynamically. So I am not sure you will get the images if you download it. You will have to try.

It works fine, i've done it for years, updating every second year or so when Anthony had made updates.

httrack makes sure everything is downloaded, it just takes the created pics from the webpage and saves them, also changes all links to something that points to your harddrive and not the webpage.

The Windows download includes the "official" IM documentation, which is unzipped to the ./www subdirectory. This doesn't include Anthony's Usage pages.
