I don't care about your problems, just give me the fix! We can actually see the diff for this update right here. Luckily, we can edit the policy.

The policy. You can read more about the security policy file on ImageMagick's website. Bulk patching using Ansible When managing a lot of applications, it might be a worth considering something like Ansible to quickly set-up, manage and patch all of your servers. My colleague Ruben wrote an excellent Ansible playbook to apply the above fix. It deals with the different ImageMagick directories as well! The changelog for this update can be found here.

One of the first changes in the log is "disable ghostscript handled types by default in policy. Such e-mail generally results in improvements and expansions to these example pages.

As a consequence, some examples use shell 'for-do' loops.

The longer commands are broken into separate lines to try to further highlight the steps being applied. However, you can still use these examples from PC Windows batch scripts, with some changes to the handling of certain characters.

With some slight adaptation, the examples can also be run directly from 'system' calls in PHP scripts. Contributions and test examples are welcome. I recommend trying things out on the command line first, until you get them right, and then converting the operations to the specific API you are using. Although the situation has improved enormously with IM version 6, the command line really only deals with a single image sequence at any one time.

However, APIs do not have this limitation, and allow you to manipulate multiple image sequences, separately or together, to perform more complex operations. This ability makes it simpler to implement these examples using the IM API, and removes the need to save images as temporary files, as many of the command line examples require.

When using an API, only permanent and semi-permanent images need be saved to disk. Basically, let the example pages give you a start, to let you see what is possible with ImageMagick.

Then, formulate what you want to do on the command line, before coding the operations in scripts and API code, where it is harder to make extensive changes. I also recommend that you comment your API code, heavily, adding the command line equivalents to what you are trying to do, if possible. That way, you can check and compare the results against those using the command line. This lets you debug problems that you may come across later, especially as improvements are made to image processing in the Core ImageMagick Library.

Downloading Input Images and Results As much as possible, I try to use images built-into IM such as "logo:" or "rose:" as input images for IM example commands, or to generate input images using IM commands.

I also often re-use the output of previous commands in later examples. Because of this, you usually don't need to download any 'test' images in order to try out the examples yourself. However, such generated or built-in images are not always convenient. So, when I do use an external image, I tend to re-use that input image, or the results of previous examples, for later examples in that section. Sometimes the original source image will be displayed or for larger images a link to the source image is provided.

More commonly only the final resulting image will be shown, as the input is well known or obvious. Almost all the IM example commands shown are executed in the same web directory in which they appear.

That is, the command you see is the command that was actually used to generate the image. Because of this you can modify the page's URL to download or view the input image s used by an example.

See also the example of a Fancy Photo Index of those images. If text output or image information is produced by an example, it is saved to a text file, and an image of it is generated for display on the Web page. Selecting the text output image will link you to a copy of the actual text output by the command.

In all these examples, selecting the output image should let you download the image which was actually created by the example command. But be warned, not all browsers understand all image formats used. External Image Sources By the way, most of the source images used in these examples come from Anthony's Icon Library , particularly the background tiles , large clip-art , and dragons sections of the library.

I like dragons! This library actually predates the WWW.

I created it in , due to the lack of good, clean iconic images for use on the X Window System. The advent of the WWW has of course changed this, but my original library still exists and remains available as a source of images, even though it is not actively growing. Some specific images, and larger images, are contributed by the authors of specific examples.

The authors of such examples are listed in the contributed section, or at the bottom of the page. If you are looking for a specific image, I recommend using Google Image Search or similar to find something appropriate. You can, of course, convert or resize such images using IM for your own purposes.

What's New:

However, you should be careful about copyright if you plan to use such images commercially. The PNG image format supports images with semi-transparent pixels, a feature few other image formats provide. It is also a very well-understood image format and, as such, is usable by most of today's image programs and Web browsers.

Technically, this is only problem with IE, not ImageMagick.

Displaying Images on Your Screen Display problems can also occur when displaying images on-screen. Because of this, I recommend using a command like the following to tile a 'checkerboard' pattern underneath the image, to highlight any transparent or semi-transparent pixels in it.

Normally, the command would output the results to your display, not onto a Web page like this.

If you look carefully, you can see the checkerboard pattern though the semi-transparent colors. However, the image, as a whole, is fully opaque.

So, this technique should work on all displays, Web browsers, and image viewers.

As of IM v6. However, it does not seem to handle images using color tables i. Using the "x:" output image format as above causes an image to be displayed directly to the screen, without having to save it.

See Show Output Display for more information. Font Usage The fonts I use in these examples are from a small collection of TrueType fonts I have found over the years, and saved for my own use. Some of these are under copyright, so I cannot publish them online.What you need is to swap both layers around: convert yourimage To see what fonts are currently available to your version of IM, run the following command However, APIs do not have this limitation, and allow you to manipulate multiple image sequences, separately or together, to perform more complex operations.
