I've tried to translate the discussion on this topic in the nonenglish forum here but I can't work it out.

Would someone please either:
1. Search the German posts for "ImageMagic XAMPP" and translate
2. help me get ImageMagick to work in Typo3 under XAMPP
please ????

I've used the Typo3 installation with a precompiled AMP with ImageMagic but it is very slow compaired to XAMPP plus some of my other site like XOOPS, PostNuke and OSCommerce get admin errors in Typo3 AMP.

I'm not sure, but some time ago I did the same thing your trying now.
To install ImageMagic, you have to dOwnload an Executable...
Install it to C:\XAMPP\ImageMagic for example, and then read the INSTALL File...
All you really have to do is Load a Module... restart Apache and thatr was it...
But Typo3 will also work without ImageMagic....
I've got it running without... cos I don't really need it.

So long

Thanks KriS,

Can I just ask you about Typo3 please?

Briefly, do you like it? After only a week I can see it is vast, is it worth the learning curve?

ImageMagick: In what situation would one use it? Is it only for generating images on the fly? Do web designers use this sort of module?

Thanks for you time,
