Installation

Instructions to install ImageMagick on Windows XP,
Linux Fedora 6, OSX and Xampp.

These methods worked for me, I so far have only tried out basic resizing with the installations.
Please do not send me any emails asking how to setup ImageMagick on your computer etc. as I do not have the knowledge to help you out.

If you have some other methods or notes that others may find useful email them to me and I will add them to the list.

You should install Ghostscript first if you want to do anything with text or pdf files.

You can check if you have Ghostscript installed with:

<?php
echo "<pre>";
system("which ghostscript");  
system("ghostscript --version");
echo 
"</pre>";
?>

You may need to install wget if you want to do anything with webpages off site.

You can check if you have wget installed with:

<?php
echo "<pre>";
system("which wget");  
system("wget --version");
echo 
"</pre>";
?>
