Re: RAW support

This Christmas was my first attempt to shoot in RAW with my new camera, so I am on entirely new ground. IM does successfully read the file. But I don't want the raw image. Sony embeds color and geometry correction data within the file, and I want it to be applied. I'll guess that dcraw can't do this...

RAW support

I have a raw image file (.arw) from a Sony Alpha NEX 6 camera. IM can read the file, but it gets the raw, uncorrected image. Using a driver from Sony, Windows Explorer displays the file properly. Can IM be made to read through the Sony driver?

Re: podcast mention

The story was about Gmail's potential change to the serving of images. IM was mentioned in passing as a image scripting tool. Nothing special, my brain just lit up with "I know that." TNT has a show page and rss feed . More relevant, Tekzilla had an entire short ( Revision3 or YouTube ) on IM recent...

podcast mention

ImageMagick was briefly mentioned on Tech News Today today (episode 902 at 21:24) by Darren Kitchen. Makes me want to start playing with IM again.

Re: IM Unsharp vs PS USM

I don't have Photoshop, but I did recently have this same question using GIMP. See topic: unsharp parameters: GIMP -> IM http://www.imagemagick.org/discourse-server/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=23747 I found amount/gain and threshold to work as I expected. My issue was with converting radius & sigma. I found...

Re: Different quality setting for different areas of an imag

The jpegtran utility supports "crop 'n' drop". I'm curious if you could achieve smaller files or faster processing.

Re: Do i need all 50 MB of ImageMagick?

There is a portable version available. Is that the build you are trying to slim down?

Re: How to just rename each image in a folder

IM isn't the right tool for this, but file renaming is a crowded category so you have endless options. Many tools will let you include image properties and metadata in your filenames. Some will let you create hard or soft links, which may be useful if you have just one progrm/step that requires the ...

Re: watermark just 2nd page of tiff and keeping both pages

On Windows, parenthesis don't need escaping with backslashes.

Alternatively to operating on the second image/page, Fred's command could be changed to watermark the last page.

Re: Drawing a complex image with many (lots of) shapes

IM also has a PHP interface.

snibgo, is the @file feature documented somewhere? I've never seen that before.

Re: From sRGB to CMYK and gamma?

Exactly as snibgo and magick said. Additionally, the command line is read from left to right. -set colorspace and -colorspace operate on all images currently in the list. An operation that occurs when the list is empty does nothing. Settings may occur before the first image. It's not clear to me if ...

Re: From sRGB to CMYK and gamma?

joew, you are of course correct that some knowledge of data is needed to process it properly. But not all knowledge is needed for most operations. Let's take your ascii example. Knowing that a file is encoded as ascii is enough to count the occurrences of 'a', but is not enough knowledge to count th...

Re: combine crop and scale into one command?

You may want a +repage after the -crop.

Lossy formats, such as jpeg, are not ideal for intermediate files.

Re: From sRGB to CMYK and gamma?

Linear RGB is 'correct'. But our eyes are not. Now what? It would be easier if there were one correct answer. Sigh. I have far less experience than snibgo, but here is what I've seen so far. When the change is small (a 2/3 resize or 10% increase in brightness), there is nearly no difference in nearl...
