View Full Version : Imagemagick (Windows)

Could someone provide me with a post on how I can get Imagemagick working with php?

I've seen plenty of sites related to Linux but unfortunately I'm on a Windows box.

Do I have to register a specific dll and edit my php.ini or is there something else I need to do to start working with the Imagemagick api?

depends how you want to work with it, there is a PECL imagick extension that you can download from pecl.php.net , or you can download the imagemagick binaries and use them via exec().

Personally I prefer to use the binaries and exec(), grab the imagemagick binaries from http://www.imagemagick.org/script/download.php, there is an installer which sets up the PATH to imagemagick.

however I prefer to simply exec the path ... e.g.

exec('c:/imagemagick/bin/convert.exe c:/blah/image.jpg c:/blah/image.png');

I prefer this method since there is a already convert.exe as part of windows (which does something totally different altogether)

Thanks firepages. That is exactly what I'm looking for.

I've never used or even read about 'exec' before but it looks perfect.
