       ImageMagick  -  is a free software suite for the creation, modification
       and display of bitmap images.

       convert input-file [options] output-file

       Use ImageMagick(R) to create, edit, compose, or convert bitmap  images.
       It can read and write images in a variety of formats (over 200) includ-
       ing PNG, JPEG, GIF, HEIC, TIFF, DPX, EXR, WebP,	Postscript,  PDF,  and
       SVG.  Use  ImageMagick  to resize, flip, mirror, rotate, distort, shear
       and transform  images,  adjust  image  colors,  apply  various  special
       effects, or draw text, lines, polygons, ellipses and B\['e]zier curves.

       The  functionality  of  ImageMagick is typically utilized from the com-
       mand-line or you can use the features from  programs  written  in  your
       favorite	 language. Choose from these interfaces: G2F (Ada), MagickCore
       (C), MagickWand (C), ChMagick (Ch), ImageMagickObject (COM+),  Magick++
       (C++),  JMagick (Java), JuliaIO (Julia), L-Magick (Lisp), Lua (LuaJIT),
       NMagick (Neko/haXe), Magick.NET (.NET), PascalMagick (Pascal), PerlMag-
       ick  (Perl),  MagickWand	 for  PHP  (PHP),  IMagick (PHP), PythonMagick
       (Python), magick (R), RMagick (Ruby), or	 TclMagick  (Tcl/TK).  With  a
       language	 interface, use ImageMagick to modify or create images dynami-
       cally and automagically.

       ImageMagick utilizes multiple computational threads to increase perfor-
       mance and can read, process, or write mega-, giga-, or tera-pixel image

       ImageMagick is free software delivered as a ready-to-run binary distri-
       bution or as source code that you may use, copy, modify, and distribute
       in both open and proprietary applications. It is	 distributed  under  a
       derived Apache 2.0 license.

       The  ImageMagick	 development  process  ensures	a  stable API and ABI.
       Before each ImageMagick release, we perform  a  comprehensive  security
       assessment  that includes memory error, thread data race detection, and
       continuous fuzzing to help prevent security vulnerabilities.

       The current release is ImageMagick 6.9.10-11. It runs  on  Linux,  Win-
       dows, Mac Os X, iOS, Android OS, and others.

       The    authoritative    ImageMagick    version	 6    web    site   is
       https://legacy.imagemagick.org. The authoritative source	 code  reposi-
       tory  is	 https://github.com/ImageMagick/ImageMagick6.  We  maintain  a
       source code mirror at https://gitlab.com/ImageMagick/ImageMagick6.

       The design of ImageMagick is an evolutionary process, with  the	design
       and  implementation  efforts  serving  to  influence  and guide further
       progress in the other. With ImageMagick version 7 we aim to improve the
       design based on lessons learned from the version 6 implementation.

       In the paragraphs below, find a short description for each command-line
       tool.Cl ick on the program name to get details on the program usage and
       a  list	of comman d-line options that alters how the program performs.
       If you are just getting acq uainted with ImageMagick, start at the  top
       of the list, the convert program, and
	work  your way down. Also be sure to peruse Anthony Thyssen's tutorial
       on how to
	use ImageMagick utilities to convert, compose, or edit images from the
       command- line.


	      convert  between image formats as well as resize an image, blur,
	      crop, despeckle, dither, draw on,	 flip,	join,  re-sample,  and
	      much more.


	      describes	 the  format  and characteristics of one or more image


	      resize an image, blur, crop, despeckle, dither, draw  on,	 flip,
	      join,  re-sample, and much more. Mogrify overwrites the original
	      image file, whereas, convert writes to a different image file.


	      overlaps one image over another.


	      create a composite image by combining several  separate  images.
	      The  images  are tiled on the composite image optionally adorned
	      with a border, frame, image name, and more.


	      mathematically and visually annotate the difference  between  an
	      image and its reconstruction..


	      is  a lightweight tool to stream one or more pixel components of
	      the image or portion of the image to your choice of storage for-
	      mats.  It	 writes the pixel components as they are read from the
	      input image a row at a time making stream desirable when working
	      with large images or when you require raw pixel components.


	      displays an image or image sequence on any X server.


	      animates an image sequence on any X server.


	      saves  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.


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