I'm fustrated trying to do this relatively simple command.

I want to zoom in a on a picture, but keep the dimensions the same.. (it's for an animation)

I've tried -resize 110% -crop 800x600 , but that left weird crop lines. .

Is there a simpler way?

Not sure what you mean by "weird crop lines". Do you specify offsets (-crop 800x600+0+0)? What is your full command?

I don't know what the weird crop lines are. Can you supply an example (and the command, as GK says, and your IM version)?

For animated zooms, I use "-distort SRT", eg "-distort SRT 1.1,0". It doesn't need a crop, the zoom is smooth (instead of being quantised into integer dimensions), and I can easily choose to zoom in to somewhere other than the centre.
