Where do you put all the images? Stack Overflow works best with JavaScript enabled. This is a custom process for each photo, as the text cannot go to the same place in every instance, so it won’t be automated. The batch of images are black and white and depict the shadow-shapes iamgemagick by a group of buildings: I can’t test it at the moment. Questions and postings pertaining to the usage of ImageMagick regardless of the interface.


If on windows, the syntax would be slightly different, but the script would have to change a lot and I am not a Windows user.

This meant you had to also swap the various channels around to allow the Modulate Operator to work correctly. However, when I tried it on the batch of images my computer’s memory usage hit the sky and beyond: This was changed because of a bug report by a user about the above situation.

One thing I have noticed is that the tif images that i am creating are very large in size. If you need to create the larger image from some other image, then the above can easily be modified to create 3 output images. By mixing up the rows you can use to swap the various channels around. Here for example is the other common greyscaling formula ‘ recluma ‘ convert test.

That’s useful, so if jsmithson can figure out how to configure GS to solve his problem, then he can add the relevant command line parameters there, potentially even creating a new named setup specifically for this purpose? It does however make exact control of the final colors when tinting grayscale images, very awkward. Post as a guest Name. The second difference has to do with where counts begin.

The color processes below generally assumes the image is using a linear colorspace. The web site I’m working on is http: For practical reasons to do with JPEG color inaccuracies see JPEG Color Distortion for more details and scanned image noise, ” -normalize ” does not expand the very brightest and darkest colors, but a little beyond those values.

The ‘ LCHab ‘ and ‘ LCHuv ‘ colorspaces order the channels in the same way as ‘ HSL imagemaguck, so as to allow modulate to work properly, and directly imagemagivk the colorsapce without requiring channel re-ordering.

Most images are however saved using a sRGB or Gamma corrected colorspace, as such to get things right colorspace correction should also applied first. That’s the reverse of what I am doing.


The multiplicity of the black parts should become visible without being covered by the white parts. GS version is 9. The second question is, if IM can’t be made to do it: For example here I swap the red and blue channel values. Just beat me to it Mark.
