ImageMagic (mogrify) and Magick.NET - JPG is edged instead rounded (AdaptiveResize)

Jan 23, 2015 at 1:30 PM

i have a problem with Magick.NET-Q16-AnyCPU and the PDF to Image conversion.

Before I'm using Magick.NET i used ImageMagick (Mogrify exe).

Also for example.

Original PDF:

mogrify.exe -resize 115 -quality 100 -format jpg "*.pdf[0]"
Example with ImageMagick Mogrify

using (var read = System.IO.File.OpenRead("4.pdf"))
    using (var write = System.IO.File.OpenWrite("4.jpg"))
        MagickReadSettings settings = new MagickReadSettings();
        settings.Density = new MagickGeometry(300);
        settings.FrameIndex = 0;
        settings.FrameCount = 1;

        using (MagickImageCollection images = new MagickImageCollection())
            images.Read(read, settings);

            using (MagickImage horizontal = images.AppendHorizontally())
                horizontal.Quality = 100;
                horizontal.AdaptiveResize(115, 163);
                horizontal.Write(write, MagickFormat.Jpg);
Example with Magick.NET Fullscreen

The output is below the code.

As comparison:
Example with ImageMagick MogrifyExample with Magick.NET Fullscreen
ImageMagick | Magick.NET

I hope you could help me to make the Magick.NET image more rounded.
The current settings are to edged.

Thanks in Advance!

Why are you using AdaptiveResize instead of Resize? The command '-resize 115' translates to Resize(115,0).

Thats a little bitfaulty for me.

horizontal.Resize(115, 0);
(or 163 instead 0)

That's the result.

Example with Magick.NET

The microsoft preview pdf above works, correct. :O
But if I'm using another "simple" MS Word PDF with a little sentence i've got black screen.

Why? ...

Edit 1:
Getting error:

How i can use Magick.NET with Ghostscript?
-> I'll google it.

Edit 2:
Ah, if i use mogrify to convert pdf to jpg first and then jpg to jpg (resized) it works.
mogrify.exe -format jpg "*.pdf[0]"
mogrify.exe -resize 115 -quality 100 -format jpg "*.jpg"

How to convert pdf to resized jpg without using ghostscript?
using (var inputStream = File.OpenRead(inputFile))
    using (var outputStream = File.OpenWrite(outputFile))
        using (var memoryStream = new MemoryStream())
            MagickReadSettings settings = new MagickReadSettings();
            settings.Density = new MagickGeometry(300);
            settings.FrameIndex = 0;
            settings.FrameCount = 1;
            settings.Format = MagickFormat.Pdf;

            using (MagickImage image = new MagickImage(inputStream, settings))
                image.Quality = 100;
                image.Write(memoryStream, MagickFormat.Jpg);

            if (memoryStream.CanSeek) { memoryStream.Seek(0, System.IO.SeekOrigin.Begin); }
            settings.Format = MagickFormat.Jpg;
            using (MagickImage image = new MagickImage(memoryStream, settings))
                image.Quality = 100;
                image.Resize(115, 0);
                image.Write(outputStream, MagickFormat.Jpg);
