JPEG-turbo and arithmetic coding

Post by whugemann »

I have just installed my first 7.x version of IM (i.e. with magick.exe) as a precompiled windows binary. How do i found out whether it uses jpeg-turbo and if so, how can I use arithmetic coding?

magick -list format
JPEG* JPEG rw- Joint Photographic Experts Group JFIF format (62)

I think that 62 gives a hint on jpeg-turbo (?).

In the next release you will see that libjpeg-turbo is being used for the Windows binaries. And there was not yet support for creating an image with arithmetic coding so I added that feature for you. You can do this in the next release:

Code: Select all

magick convert logo: -define jpeg:arithmetic-coding=true logo.jpg
And in the output of identify you will see this:

Code: Select all

magick identify -verbose logo.jpg

jpeg:coding: arithmetic
.NET + ImageMagick = Magick.NET, @MagickNET, Donate
