the XAMPP is a very great project!!

i suggests add ImageMagick (www.ImageMagick.org ) function in the next version.

ImageMagickTM 6.1.8 is a robust collection of tools and libraries to read, write, and manipulate an image in many image formats (over 90 major formats) including popular formats like TIFF, JPEG, PNG, PDF, PhotoCD, and GIF. With ImageMagick you can create images dynamically, making it suitable for Web applications. You can also resize, rotate, sharpen, color reduce, or add special effects to an image or image sequence and save your completed work in the same or differing image format. Image processing operations are available from the command line, or from the C, C++, Perl, Java, PHP, Python, or Ruby programming languages. A high-quality 2D renderer is included, which provides a subset of SVG capabilities. ImageMagick's focus is on performance, minimizing bugs, and providing stable APIs and ABIs.

Here are just a few examples of what ImageMagick can do:

Convert an image from one format to another (e.g. TIFF to JPEG)
Resize, rotate, sharpen, color reduce, or add special effects to an image
Create a montage of image thumbnails
Create a transparent image suitable for use on the Web
Turn a group of images into a GIF animation sequence
Create a composite image by combining several separate images
Draw shapes or text on an image
Decorate an image with a border or frame
Describe the format and characteristics of an image

The source code for any package based on PerlMagick may be found here. Currently we include MagickStudio, a CGI (dynamic Web server) interface to ImageMagick.

The source code for any package based on PHP may be found here. Currently we include MagickWand for PHP, a complete port of the new MagickWand API to PHP

MagickWand For PHP

Postby jimmy0766 » 09. January 2005 07:44

MagickWand For PHP

MagickWand For PHP
This module enables PHP access to the ImageMagick MagickWand API.

In order to use the MagickWand For PHP module's functions, you need to install ImageMagick version 6.1.5, or greater, and the MagickWand for PHP extension source code / DLL.

ImageMagick can be downloaded from http://www.imagemagick.org/.

MagickWand For PHP's source / DLL can be downloaded from http://www.magickwand.org/download/php/.

Linux / Unix
The following installation instructions are taken directly from the "INSTALL" file in the MagickWand For PHP distribution:

MagickWand Extension for PHP :: Installation Instructions

** REQUIRED ** ImageMagick version :: 6.1.5-7
Last-known-good ImageMagick version :: 6.1.5-7

Installation Steps

1) Either install the required ImageMagick version or make sure that it
is installed (running "Wand-config --version" should give you the
required information).

2) Extract the contents of the archive this file was in, or copy the
entire directory the this file is in (make sure that it is still called
"magickwand") to the "ext" directory in the PHP source folder. So, if
your PHP source folder is called "PHP_SRC_DIR", you should end up with
a directory structure like the following:


3) Go into the "PHP_SRC_DIR/ext/magickwand/" directory, and run "phpize".
(A note: if this is the first time PHP is being installed, you have to
install PHP without MagickWand, because "phpize" is a part of the PHP

4) Go back to the main PHP source directory (from the example above, it
would be "PHP_SRC_DIR", and run:

rm ./configure

and then

./buildconf --force

to remove and rebuild the PHP configure script.

5) Follow the PHP installation instructions, but add


to your ./configure command, replacing "IMG_MGCK_DIR" with the full path
of the directory where ImageMagick is installed (in most cases "/usr").

To be added.

Resource Types
There are four resource types used in the MagickWand For PHP extension:

This resource is used by the vector drawing functions (functions starting with "Draw"). It is created by NewDrawingWand(), and basically holds a list of vector drawing commands.

This resource represents a structure which contains a list of images. It is created new NewMagickWand().

This resource represents color information. It is created by New PixelWand.

This resource allows rapid pixel level alteration of individual pixels in an image. It is created by NewPixeliterator() and by NewPixelRegionIterator().
