slavvo67, I wanted to thank you for your suggestion about loading a PDF document into LibreOffice in order to convert it to something more useful. I was sent a PDF document by a friend yesterday who was desperate to get it converted (it was an application form for a local group). Using your advice I easily converted it to the format my friend needed using LibreOffice Writer. I would have never thought of doing that.

Thank you. I'm very grateful.

Subject description: Required by Xenialpup64
 

Hi slavvo67, miriam and All,

As promised (albeit later than anticipated) I've completed (I think) figuring out how to run slavvo67's ImageMagick-6.8.6_10-x86_64-1.pet under Xenialpup64. Turns out, my initial hunch was right: all that was required was some symlinks. Unfortunately, I got off to a bad start by forgetting to check what binaries were already on the system resulting in an unnecessary hunt for binaries. Later, I realized that libImath-2_2.so.12.0.0 satisfied the missing libImath.so.7 if a symbolic link to libImath-2_2.so.12.0.0 was named libImath.so.7. But only after a good night's sleep and some time away from the project did it occur to me that the previous binaries I had installed complicated matters.

The attached xenialpup64_imagemagick_symlinks.pet is the result. With both it and ImageMagick-6.8.6_10-x86_64-1.pet installed under Xenialpup64 typing "mogrify" --without the quotes-- in a terminal brings up what appears to be a display of suggested commands to use with that application.

Since imagemagick is actually an umbrella application for modules, of which mogrify is one, and I don't know the others, I am reluctant to suggest that I have tracked down all that was necessary. Further testing suggestions are welcome.

Regarding the other applications slavvo67 provided for my exploration, I have neither used nor explored them fully. Most important to note about this is

I did not install the python-2.7.1.pet. My system already had python installed, required by other applications. Installing another version was likely to break things. Hopefully, the python already installed will satisfy imagemagick.

imagemagick2.pet appears to only duplicate the xml files found in /etc/imagemagick in both the imagemagick1.pet and in the ImageMagick-6.8.6_10-x86_64-1.pet. The files in imagemagick1.pet duplicate those in ImageMagick-6.8.6_10-x86_64-1.pet.

I'll review slavvo67's post regarding pdfchuck and see what it has to offer. Or maybe it's just something I forgot to remove from my download folder. Embarassed

p.s. Installed pdfchuck.pet after searching for posts about it. Ran the choice to convert a pdf to a jpg. Worked OK -- well, the background of the resulting page was light-grey rather than white, but readable.

Suggest further testing by someone familiar with imagemagick.

The commands in the ImageMagick suite are listed at:
https://www.imagemagick.org/script/command-line-tools.php

In version 6 and earlier:

animate - animate an image sequence on any X server.

compare - mathematically and visually annotate the difference between an image and its reconstruction.

composite - overlap one image over another.

conjure - interpret and execute scripts written in the Magick Scripting Language (MSL).

convert - convert between image formats as well as resize an image, blur, crop, despeckle, dither, draw on, flip, join, re-sample, and much more.

display - display an image or image sequence on any X server.

identify - describe the format and characteristics of one or more image files.

import - save any visible window on an X server and outputs it as an image file. You can capture a single window, the entire screen, or any rectangular portion of the screen.

mogrify - resize an image, blur, crop, despeckle, dither, draw on, flip, join, re-sample, and much more. Mogrify overwrites the original image file, whereas, convert writes to a different image file.

montage - create a composite image by combining several separate images. The images are tiled on the composite image optionally adorned with a border, frame, image name, and more.

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. It writes the pixel components as they are read from the input image a row at a time making stream desirable when working with large images or when you require raw pixel components.


I mostly use convert, mogrify, display, import, animate.
I've never used compare, montage, conjure, or stream. (I didn't even know about stream, or conjure.) Smile


For the most recent version of ImageMagick two additional tools exist, which might be intended to eventually supplant all the others. They aren't in my version, and I was surprised to learn of them:

magick - convert between image formats as well as resize an image, blur, crop, despeckle, dither, draw on, flip, join, re-sample, and much more.

magick-script - use this scripting language interpreter to convert between image formats as well as resize an image, blur, crop, despeckle, dither, draw on, flip, join, re-sample, and much more.

I love the fact that I learn something new every day. Very Happy
