    "Works exactly as advertised."

    March 12, 2013   |   By DraKarel

    Version: ImageMagick 6.8.3-9

    Pros

    This is a powerful set of API's and tools with a friendly licence agreement and no nonsense. Use this for a simple, open image processing API.

    Cons

    ActiveX registration is seemingly always problematic.

    Summary

    I will list this among contributions such as SQLite in terms of usefulness and pervasiveness all accross the web world. Keep it up, youre doing good.

    "Lousy program"

    May 30, 2012   |   By NotDemOrRep

    Version: ImageMagick 6.7.7-3

    Pros

    Absolutely NONE!

    Cons

    does not work. WTH does "command line" mean when it comes to working with an image? Total waste of my time and computer resources.

    "Easy way to install ImageMagick!"

    April 20, 2012   |   By ImYohn

    Version: ImageMagick 6.7.6-6

    Pros

    So glad I found an easy way to install this program. If you know what Imagemagick is, then heres an easy way to get it on your computer without installing it through the binaries.

    Imagemagick works awesome for image manipulation within coding for other web masters. If you're a developer and wanted to get this program on your computer for testing then this is the way to go!

    Cons

    The included graphical interface is rudimentary at best.

    Summary

    Only download if you know what you are downloading. Dont expect some kind of awesome new interface to edit images cause you wont get that here. This is best used within the command line, or within web masters scripts. It takes PHP's GD function to a different level.

    "The Swiss Army knife of command-line image processing."

    August 27, 2011   |   By obeythepenguin

    Version: ImageMagick 6.7.2

    Pros

    ImageMagick provides a powerful set of tools for non-interactive image processing on the command line and through its application programming interface.

    Cons

    The included graphical interface is rudimentary at best.

    Summary

    I'm writing this mostly to clear up any misconceptions users might have about this software. ImageMagick is indeed a powerful and robust collection of tools; however, its strength is on the command line, not in its graphical interface. ImageMagick will not replace a program like Photoshop for interactive image manipulation, but it will come in handy for batch-converting between image file formats, automatically generating thumbnails on a website, and other such "behind-the-scenes" tasks. (It's capable of much more, too; take a look at the included documentation for many more examples.)

    ImageMagick is not something most people will ever need to use, but if you ever have to process a large number of images in bulk, it is an absolute godsend. If Photoshop is a paintbrush, think of ImageMagick as a printing press; it's not really a tool for careful refinement, but it's by far the more practical choice for mass production.

    "Do they just make this stuff up, without reviewing it?"

    March 16, 2011   |   By Vanillaman

    Version: ImageMagick 6.6.8-4

    Pros

    Nothing. It has barely any features at all.

    Cons

    "robust collection of tools?" Really? Folks, this is yet another scam that CNET has let slip. This is almost exactly the same as Notepad, with fewer, (if any) features.

    Summary

    Scam. Featureless. The publishers description above is fake.
