Invalid Parameter - -resize npm ImageMagick

Post by bealefay »

I intend to resize any image from localPath to thumbPath to 100x100:

Code: Select all

im.convert([localPath, '-resize', '100x100', thumbPath], function (err, stdout, stderr) {
                                if (err) {
                                    console.log('error in resizing user id proof image ===>>>', err);
                                } else {
And I get error as follows:

Code: Select all

error in resizing user id proof image ===>>> { Error: Command failed: Invalid Parameter - -resize

    at ChildProcess.<anonymous> (C:\Users\Bidchat\Documents\GrassdoorWebService\node_modules\imagemagick\imagemagick.js:88:15)

Help is appreciated.

What version of IM, on what platform? I suppose your platform is Windows.

If you use IM v7, I suggest you use "magick", not "convert".

This message doesn't come from ImageMagick "convert". Instead, it comes from Microsoft Windows "convert". You are running the wrong program.
