ImageMagick is built on Ghostscript which i have introduced in the following post previously.
Ghostscript – Convert PDF Cover/Page into PNG
I am working on my Rails project with the Paperclip gem which requires ImageMagick. Installation of ImageMagick in Ubuntu is very simple. Just grab it by apt-get.
- apt-get install imagemagick
After installation, you could make use of the convert command to manipulate images.
# Convert png to jpg convert kit.png kit.jpg # Resize a png and convert it to jpg convert kit.png -resize 50% kit-resized.jpg
Checkout all the available options of the convert command @ ImageMagick Official Site
