    Question [SOLVED] Trying to Launch Imagemagick

    I have been trying to launch the "ImageMagick" program.
    The program is listed as installed in the synaptic package manager.
    If I type "imagemagick" into a terminal I get the message:
    andavane@andavane-desktop:~$ imagemagick
    bash: imagemagick: command not found
    andavane@andavane-desktop:~$
    I have looked and found what I think is the program in
    /usr/share/ImageMagick-6.2.4
    I see there is a folder and two files.
    I have put what I think is the correct file into the menu via alacarte but it won't run, as by this stage I am no longer understanding what I am doing.

    The reason I am trying to use this is because I have a photo which I want to reduce to a thumbnail to use as a logo.

    Thanks in advance for help.

    Regards

    John

    PS:
    Googling my query generates items with script which I simply do not understand.

    Try typing mogrify into your terminal.

    Imagemagick is not a gui program, but programs you can run from the command line.

    convert
    compose
    mogrify

    are some of the commands I remember. Have a look at imagemagick.org if you want to learn more.

    I you want a gui program try Gimp or Krita

    Hi,
    There should be one gui application that comes with imagemagic, at least in the rpm distro there is (I am not at my Ubuntu machine at the moment). The application is called "display".

    bash$ display &

    Hum, I didn't know about that one. It is in Ubuntu too, but it wasn't as easy to use as Gimp. I would still prefer Gimp if I should make a thumbnail from one image. If I were to make thumbs from several images then I would use imagemagick.Imagemagick is great for scripts and batch processing of images. I use it a lot for my Amarok script (see sig).
