ImageMagick® 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 DPX, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PDF, PhotoCD, PNG, Postscript, SVG, and TIFF. 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 Bézier curves.

  • Transparency: render portions of an image invisible
  • 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
  • Image calculator: apply a mathematical expression to an image or image channels
  • Text & comments: insert descriptive or artistic text in an image
  • Image identification: describe the format and attributes of an image
  • Animation: create a GIF animation sequence from a group of images
  • Composite: overlap one image over another
  • Montage: juxtapose image thumbnails on an image canvas
  • Large image support: read, process, or write mega- and giga-pixel image sizes
