Allows you to manipulate over 88 image formats
The app supports huge images on systems that support large files, and has been tested with gigapixel-size images. GraphicsMagick can create new images on the fly, making it suitable for building dynamic web applications.
GraphicsMagick may be used to resize, rotate, sharpen, color reduce, or add special effects to an image and save the result in the same or differing image format.
Image processing operations are available from the command line, as well as through C, C++, Perl, or Windows COM programming interfaces.
Extensions are available from third-parties to support programming in Python, Tcl, and Ruby.
- Convert an image from one format to another (e.g. TIFF to JPEG)
- Resize, rotate, sharpen, color reduce, or add special effects to an image
- Create a montage of image thumbnails
- Create a transparent image suitable for use on the Web
- Turn a group of images into a GIF animation sequence
- Create a composite image by combining several separate images
- Draw shapes or text on an image
- Decorate an image with a border or frame
- Describe the format and characteristics of an image

What's New in This Release:
- Special Issues:
- Due to GCC bug 53967, several key agorithms (e.g. convolution) may execute much faster (e.g. 2-3X) for x86-64 and/or when SSE is enabled for floating point math (-mfpmath=sse) if the GCC option -frename-registers is used. Default 32-bit builds do not experience the problem since they use '387 math. It is not clear in what version of GCC this problem started but it was not noticed by the developers until the GCC 4.6 timeframe. Other compilers do not suffer from this bug. Please lobby the GCC project to fix this embarrassing performance bug.
