ImageMagick is a software suite to create, edit, and compose bitmap images. All manipulations can be achieved through shell commands.
The software can read, convert and write images in a huge variety of formats including DPX, EXR, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PDF, PhotoCD, PNG, Postscript, SVG, and TIFF.
ImageMagick is often used in industries such as web development, graphic design, and video editing, as well as in scientific research, medical imaging, and astronomy. Its versatile and customizable nature, along with its robust image processing capabilities, make it a popular choice for a wide range of image-related tasks.
ImageMagick includes a command-line interface for executing complex image processing tasks, as well as APIs for integrating its features into software applications.
The popularity of ImageMagick has spawned a number of offshoot projects which add a graphical frontend. Here’s our survey of these GUI tools captured in a legendary LinuxLinks-style ratings chart. All the software is free and open source goodness.
Let’s explore the GUIs at hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, a screenshot of the software in action, together with links to relevant resources.
