NAME
       ImageMagick  - is a free software suite for the creation, modification and display of bit-
       map images.

SYNOPSIS
       convert input-file [options] output-file

OVERVIEW
       ImageMagick(R), is a software suite to create, edit, and compose  bitmap  images.  It  can
       read,  convert  and  write images in a variety of formats (about 100) including GIF, JPEG,
       JPEG-2000, PNG, PDF, PhotoCD, TIFF, and DPX. Use ImageMagick to translate,  flip,  mirror,
       rotate,	scale,	shear  and  transform  images, adjust image colors, apply various special
       effects, or draw text, lines, polygons, ellipses and B\['e]zier curves.

       ImageMagick is free software delivered as a ready-to-run binary distribution or as  source
       code that you can freely use, copy, modify, and distribute. Its license is compatible with
       the GPL. It runs on all major operating systems.

       The functionality of ImageMagick is typically utilized from the command line  or  you  can
       use  the features from programs written in your favorite programming language. Choose from
       these interfaces: MagickCore (C), MagickWand (C), ChMagick (Ch), Magick++  (C++),  JMagick
       (Java),	L-Magick  (Lisp),  PascalMagick  (Pascal),  PerlMagick (Perl), MagickWand for PHP
       (PHP), PythonMagick (Python), RMagick (Ruby),  or  TclMagick  (Tcl/TK).	With  a  language
       interface, use ImageMagick to modify or create images automagically and dynamically.

       ImageMagick  includes  a number of command-line utilities for manipulating images. Most of
       you are probably accustom to editing images one at a time with a graphical user	interface
       (GUI)  with  such  programs as gimp or Photoshop. However, a GUI is not always convenient.
       Suppose you want to process an image dynamically from a web script or you  want	to  apply
       the  same  operations  to many images or repeat a specific operation at different times to
       the same or different image. For these types of operations, the	command-line  image  pro-
       cessing utility is appropriate.

       In the paragraphs below, find a short description for each command-line tool.Cl ick on the
       program name to get details on the program usage and a list of comman d-line options  that
       alters  how  the  program  performs. If you are just getting acq uainted with ImageMagick,
       start at the top of the list, the convert program, and
	work your way down. Also be sure to peruse Anthony Thyssen's tutorial on how to
	use ImageMagick utilities to convert, compose, or edit images from the command- line.

       convert

	      convert between image formats as well as resize an image,  blur,	crop,  despeckle,
	      dither, draw on, flip, join, re-sample, and much more.

       identify

	      describes the format and characteristics of one or more image files.

       mogrify

	      resize an image, blur, crop, despeckle, dither, draw on, flip, join, re-sample, and
	      much more. Mogrify overwrites the original image file, whereas, convert writes to a
	      different image file.

       composite

	      overlaps one image over another.

       montage

	      create a composite image by combining several separate images. The images are tiled
	      on the composite image optionally adorned with a border,	frame,	image  name,  and
	      more.

       compare

	      mathematically and visually annotate the difference between an image and its recon-
	      struction..

       stream

	      is a lightweight tool to stream one or more pixel components of the image  or  por-
	      tion of the image to your choice of storage formats. It writes the pixel components
	      as they are read from the input image a row at a time making stream desirable  when
	      working with large images or when you require raw pixel components.

       display

	      displays an image or image sequence on any X server.

       animate

	      animates an image sequence on any X server.

       import

	      saves  any  visible  window on an X server and outputs it as an image file. You can
	      capture a single window, the entire screen,  or  any  rectangular  portion  of  the
	      screen.

       conjure

	      interprets and executes scripts written in the Magick Scripting Language (MSL).
