ImageMagick is a free software suite to create, edit, and compose bitmap images. It can read, convert and write images in a large variety of formats. It is a set of tools that can be used to read, write, and manipulate images in almost any format including TIFF, JPEG, PNG, PDF, PhotoCD, and GIF. Images can be cropped, colors can be changed, various effects can be applied, images can be rotated and combined, and text, lines, polygons, ellipses and Bézier curves can be added to images and stretched and rotated.
ImageMagick is a collection of tools and libraries designed to read, write, and manipulate an image in many popular image formats, including GIF, JPEG, PNG, PDF, and Photo CD. With ImageMagick, you can create GIFs dynamically, making this program suitable for Web applications. You can also resize, rotate, sharpen, reduce the color of, or add special effects to, an image and save your completed work in the same or a different image format.
Bitmap images can be converted to other file formats, like BMP, JPEG, JPG, or PNG, with the software. In addition, it lets you rotate, resize, flip, de-skew, add shapes, trim, add borders, add blur, add a tint, or sharpen.
Classic intarface
When you launch the program, you’ll see a classic style interface which is well organized. Unfortunately, you must use the command line console to access most of the available functions of the program. If you don’t have technical skills, then you might not find this very attractive.
Most of the functionality of ImageMagick can be used interactively from the command line; more often, however, the features are used from programs written in the programming languages C, Ch, C++, Java, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, Tcl/Tk, for which ready-made ImageMagick interfaces (PerlMagick, Magick++, PythonMagick, MagickWand for PHP, RMagick, TclMagick, and JMagick) are available. This makes it possible to modify or create images automatically and dynamically.

Highlights

  • Image identification: describe the format and properties of an image
  • Composite: overlap one image over another
  • Motion picture support: read and write the common image formats used in digital film work
  • Image calculator: apply a mathematical expression to an image or image channels
  • High dynamic-range images
  • Large image support: read, process, or write mega- and giga-pixel image sizes
  • Format conversion: convert an image from one format to another (e.g. PNG to JPEG)
  • Transform: resize, rotate, crop, flip or trim an image
  • Transparency: render portions of an image invisible
  • Animation: create a GIF animation sequence from a group of images
  • Text & comments: insert descriptive or artistic text in an image
  • Montage: juxtapose image thumbnails on an image canvas
  • Draw: add shapes or text to an image
  • Decorate: add a border or frame to an image
  • Special effects: blur, sharpen, threshold, or tint an image

For those familiar with programming languages, you can use C, C++, Perl, Java, PHP, Python, or Ruby to make changes. A high-quality 2D renderer is also included which provides SVG capabilities. If you are familiar with programming commands, then the range of actions possible with ImageMagick is truly impressive including, conversions, resizing, transparencies, animated GIFs and shape drawing. However, the lack of GUI will exclude most people from using it.
