Fast image processing tools based on ImageMagick
GraphicsMagick is the swiss army knife of image processing. Comprised of 267K physical lines according to David A. Wheeler’s SLOCCount of source code in the base package or 1,225K including 3rd party libraries it provides a robust and efficient collection of tools and libraries which support reading, writing, and manipulating an image in over 88 major formats including important formats like DPX, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PNG, PDF, PNM, and TIFF.
GraphicsMagick supports huge images 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 different image format. Image processing operations are available from the command line, as well as through C, C++, Lua, Perl, PHP, Python, Tcl, Ruby, Windows .NET, or Windows COM programming interfaces. With some modification, language extensions for ImageMagick may be used.
