Using the Drawing Commands


This is the last chapter in this book that deals with the ImageMagick command line, and you’ve come a long way throughout these seven chapters. In this chapter, I discussed the various ImageMagick drawing commands, which let you modify existing images and create new images. ImageMagick can perform a lot of cool operations on images from the command line, and I hope you’ve enjoyed the last seven chapters. They should form a useful reference for your future use of the command-line tools.

The next four chapters focus on examples of programmer interfaces to ImageMagick, so you’ll need to know something about coding to get much utility from those chapters. If you’re a programmer, you’ll get to see how to use different aspects of ImageMagick in Perl, C, Ruby, and PHP. Finally, I’ll finish off the book with a chapter on where to go from what’s covered in this book.
