Prevent imagemagick creating too many huge temp files

Post by atulatg » 2019-09-18T20:18:22-07:00

Hi,
I'm using Imagemagick to convert from image to image, everything else is excellent except huge temp files are generated (many magick-* file). I know that the reason of temp file and there are almost no way to avoid it, but I have a question about this:
- Do we have an option to generate and combine one by one temp file, it mean we create a temp file, use it to convert to output file, then delete the temp file before create another one? Maybe the processing time can be slow, but it consumes not too much disk space for temp file?
Thank you.
