Book review: The Definitive Guide to ImageMagick by Michael Still

Cons There are equally useful on-line tutorials many written by the same author and manual pages written on the ImageMagick iimagemagick that make the book less than it should have been. It enables you to start experimenting, but little more. The books details only the free software angles, which extends to the development of delegates in the later chapters.

Relevance to free software The books details only the free software angles, which extends to the development of delegates in the later chapters. The book gives pointers to external advanced discussions which should have featured in the book.

The Definitive Guide to ImageMagick covers everything a beginner would want to begin using ImageMagick from the command line. This book details the functionality of the ImageMagick package primarily convertby covering its command line usage, along with most of the valid options available and example images depicting the before and after effects.

It begins slowly by describing the installation process and touches on the source package.

The author favours instead a basic run through giide the various commands and how they should be used. The explanations are good and easy to read, albeit sparse.

It is useful for those are new to ImageMagick, or for those who find learning how to do something by matching an example image to command line arguments, easier than dry textual descriptions.

It appears to be more of a cookbook than textbook, which is no bad thing in itself, but is different to what I was expecting. Again, this is limited to a cursory explanation, and several pages of source code. Also, using black and white photographs to demonstrate colour image manipulation should have been consigned to the last century.

This is brief and neither useful in the context of a cookbook, nor in-depth enough for a full-blown article. This is intended for casual users and beginners who want to learn the possibilities of ImageMagick from the command line.

It then works gukde each option individually and supplements each with at least one full example, covering most of its available options with before and after images. The tone is light and informal throughout, and you do feel that there is a lot to be discovered with ImageMagick.
