ImageMagick vs Magick.Net

Sep 12, 2013 at 5:22 AM
  1. Just wondering is Magick.Net are fully implement all features that ImageMagick can do?
  2. MagickScript are Magick.Net unique implementation?
Thank you very much.

Magick.NET tries to implement all features from ImageMagick. It uses Magick++, but not all features from ImageMagick are implemented. I am working on implementing the missing features in Magick++.

MagickScript is indeed a custom implementation.

thanks for reply

MagickScript is cool feature, allow me not to hardcoded everything ^^d

any chance to have jpeg:hint implement?

thank you very much

You can already set coder specific options like this:
<setOption format="Jpeg" name="size" value="128x128"/>
I am assuming you mean jpeg:size instead of jpeg:hint.

yes, you are right
its a jpeg:size

possible to use without MagickScript?

thank you

You can do it like this:
using (MagickImage image = new MagickImage())
  image.SetOption(MagickFormat.Jpeg, "size", "128x128");
Everything that is possible with MagickScript is possible with the classes of Magick.NET.

thank you

image.SetOption is -define in imagemagick?
Oct 4, 2013 at 7:18 PM
-define is indeed SetOption but sometimes you might need SetAttribute or SetArtifact.

any place to get details about SetAttribute and SetArtifac?

thank you very much.

Not really. It are just different ways of how ImageMagick internally stores information. In some parts of the code ImageMagick uses GetAttribute/GetArtifact to get a specific setting. SetOption should work most of the time.
