ImageMagick (version 6.2.5-5)

ImageMagick provides a suite of commandline utilities for creating, converting, editing, and displaying images:

Display is a machine architecture independent image process- ing and display program. It can display an image on any workstation display running an X server.

Import reads an image from any visible window on an X server and outputs it as an image file. You can capture a single window, the entire screen, or any rectangular portion of the screen.

Montage creates a composite by combining several separate images. The images are tiled on the composite image with the name of the image optionally appearing just below the indi- vidual tile. Convert converts an input file using one image format to an output file with a differing image format.

Mogrify transforms an image or a sequence of images. These transforms include image scaling, image rotation, color reduction, and others. The transmogrified image overwrites the original image.

Identify describes the format and characteristics of one or more image files. It will also report if an image is incom- plete or corrupt.

Composite composites images to create new images.

Conjure interprets and executes scripts in the Magick Scripting Language (MSL).
