ImageMagick is a set of command-line programs for handling images. It is free, open-source software included with most Linux distros; it is also available for Microsoft Windows.

ImageMagick consists of the following programs:

  • convert converts between image formats as well as applying the following effects: resize, blur, crop, despeckle, dither, draw on, flip, join, re-sample, and much more.
  • identify describes the format and characteristics of one or more image files
  • mogrify is essentially the same as convert except that it overwrites the original file (convert writes its output to a new file).
  • composite overlaps one image over another.
  • montage creates 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.
  • compare mathematically and visually annotates the difference between an image and its reconstruction
  • display displays an image or image sequence on any X server.
  • animate animates an image sequence on any X server.
  • import 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.
  • conjure interprets and executes scripts written in the Magick Scripting Language (MSL).
