Re: Convert WMF to BMP

What do you mean by "flattened"? WMF is a vector graphic and BMP is a (miserable) pixel grafic format. As with all vector formats, you should better use -density instead of -resize. Note that the density must be set before you load the vector image: convert -density 100x100 test.wmf test.bmp Via den...

Re: Support for PDF/A output

I guess that ImageMagick generates PS or EPS output and feeds that to GhostScript. (I tried to figure that out by setting the -verbose option, but couldn't really interpretate what IM reported.) The point seems to be that you cannot generate PDF/A from a non-conform (E)PS file. So IM's PostScript wi...

Re: Quick identify of large (PSD) file color space?

If I were you, I would do my first tests with a smaller image. You can however read only a (small) subsection of your large the image in Identify, see http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/files/#read_mods.

Re: Support for PDF/A output

As far as I understand matters, you would only have to re-define the Ghostscript command line in the file 'delegates.xml', as Ghostscript would only need the -dPDFA option set (see http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/doc/cvs/Ps2pdf.htm#PDFA ). Although I read http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/files/#dele...

Labelling in either black or white

I am trying to label photographs with either white or black letters, depending on the mean brightness of the local background, in order to acchieve the maximum contrast. I already read Anthony's remarks on labelling and reached at the following DOS beatch file: SETLOCAL ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION SET Op...

Re: [FAX] Try to convert PDF to compatible TIFF

I think that it is hard to help you as we don't know what fax gateway you are using. This may be a problem in the specific software you use for faxing and the problems it has when interpreting the TIFF created by ImageMagick. (The file links you supplied are no longer active.) You do have some influ...

Re: Rotated image gets unsharp/less quality

I think that this lies in the nature of rotation: The color values of the rotated image have to be interpolated from the neighbouring pixels in the original image, and any interpolation will blur the image by some extent. The effect will be most visible in images with sharp contrasting edges, like s...

Re: problem with rgb and cmyk colorspaces.

Provide a link to the PDF. And give information on the versions of Windows, ImageMagick and GhostSrcipt. Tell us the exact command line you are using. Then we might narrow the problem. I have done lots of conversions PDF --> JPG under Windows and rarely met problems. (However, I remember there being...

Re: Would you like a Windows GUI interface for IM

I think there's more to it than just calling functions in a DLL. Ideally, the frontend should reproduce the look and feel of the OS it's running on. (Including simple things like the OK bottom placed at the *right* bottom of the dialog box on Apple computers.) And C# and .NET is *really* MS-specific...

Re: Sparse Color as a Fill Operator Tutorial (shepard) on wi

There is a Windows version of SED, see http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/windows/#conversion. Anyway, the original bash script would need some modification when transferred to the Windows/DOS environment, which is also explained in the same section of this webpage.

Re: How to reset -region?

There was a small very recent bug fix for region. This seems to be the explanation. I have used ImageMagick 6.6.3-0 2010-07-01 Q16 (Windows) on the computer where I originally tested the code.

Re: Would you like a Windows GUI interface for IM

I've just had a look at NIP2, and it looks like one possible approach to the problem. (It also seems to offer a solution for another of my problems, i.e. handing a region selection over to IM.) I though would expect an IM GUI to be more like a programming editor that allows to instantly run the scri...

Re: How to reset -region?

I have tested the +region more thoroughly now, and found that Fred and Anthony are correct: +region resets any region settings (as I initially expected) and functions perfectly. I though still have to check what went wrong with it in my original script, where it made IM crash each time. I will come ...
