Use this ImageMagick sitemap to quickly jump to one of the areas of interest listed below. If you can't find what you want on this page, try our site search.
You can install ImageMagick from source. However, if you don't have a proper development environment or if you're anxious to get started, download a ready-to-run Linux or Windows executable.
- magick: convert between image formats as well as resize an image, blur, crop, despeckle, dither, draw on, flip, join, re-sample, and more.
- magick animate: animates an image sequence on any X server.
- magick compare: mathematically and visually annotate the difference between an image and its reconstruction.
- magick composite: overlaps one image over another.
- magick conjure: interprets and executes scripts written in the Magick Scripting Language (MSL).
- magick convert: convert between image formats as well as resize an image, blur, crop, despeckle, dither, draw on, flip, join, re-sample, and more.
- magick display: displays an image or image sequence on any X server.
- identify: describes the format and characteristics of one or more image files.
- magick import: saves any visible window on an X server and outputs it as an image file.
- magick mogrify: resize an image, blur, crop, despeckle, dither, draw on, flip, join, re-sample, and more.
- magick montage: create a composite image by combining several separate images.
- magick stream: a lightweight tool to stream one or more pixel components of the image or portion of the image to your choice of storage formats.
- CL-Magick: provides a Common Lisp interface to the ImageMagick library.
- Magick.NET: Use Magick.NET to convert, compose, and edit images from Windows .NET.
- Magick++: provides an object-oriented C++ interface to ImageMagick.

|Animation||create a GIF animation sequence from a group of images.|
|Bilateral blur||non-linear, edge-preserving, and noise-reducing smoothing filter.|
|Color management||accurate color management with color profiles or in lieu of-- built-in gamma compression or expansion as demanded by the colorspace.|
|Color thresholding||force all pixels in the color range to white otherwise black.|
|Command-line processing||utilize ImageMagick from the command-line.|
|Complex text layout||bidirectional text support and shaping.|
|Composite||overlap one image over another.|
|Connected component labeling||uniquely label connected regions in an image.|
|Convex hull||smallest area convex polygon containing the image foreground objects. In addition, the minimum bounding box and unrotate angle are also generated.|
|Decorate||add a border or frame to an image.|
|Delineate image features||Canny edge detection, Hough lines.|
|Discrete Fourier transform||implements the forward and inverse DFT.|
|Distributed pixel cache||offload intermediate pixel storage to one or more remote servers.|
|Draw||add shapes or text to an image.|
|Encipher or decipher an image||convert ordinary images into unintelligible gibberish and back again.|
|Format conversion||convert an image from one format to another (e.g. PNG to JPEG).|
|Generalized pixel distortion||correct for, or induce image distortions including perspective.|
|Heterogeneous distributed processing||certain algorithms are OpenCL-enabled to take advantage of speed-ups offered by executing in concert across heterogeneous platforms consisting of CPUs, GPUs, and other processors.|
|High dynamic-range images||accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from the brightest direct sunlight to the deepest darkest shadows.|
|Histogram equalization||use adaptive histogram equalization to improve contrast in images.|
|Image cache||secure methods and tools to cache images, image sequences, video, audio or metadata in a local folder..|
|Image calculator||apply a mathematical expression to an image, image sequence, or image channels.|
|Image gradients||create a gradual blend of two colors whose shape is horizontal, vertical, circular, or elliptical.|
|Image identification||describe the format and attributes of an image.|
|ImageMagick on the iPhone||convert, edit, or compose images on your iOS device such as the iPhone or iPad.|
|Large image support||read, process, or write mega-, giga-, or tera-pixel image sizes.|
|Montage||juxtapose image thumbnails on an image canvas.|
|Morphology of shapes||extract features, describe shapes, and recognize patterns in images.|
|Motion picture support||read and write the common image formats used in digital film work.|
|Multispectral imagery||support multispectral imagery up to 64 bands.|
|Noise and color reduction||Kuwahara Filter, mean-shift.|
|Perceptual hash||map visually identical images to the same or similar hash-- useful in image retrieval, authentication, indexing, or copy detection as well as digital watermarking.|
|Special effects||blur, sharpen, threshold, or tint an image.|
|Text & comments||insert descriptive or artistic text in an image.|
|Threads of execution support||ImageMagick is thread safe and most internal algorithms execute in parallel to take advantage of speed-ups offered by multicore processor chips.|
|Transform||resize, rotate, deskew, crop, flip or trim an image.|
|Transparency||render portions of an image invisible.|
|Virtual pixel support||convenient access to pixels outside the image boundaries.|
