Full Description: 

GraphicsMagick is the swiss army knife of image processing.

GraphicsMagick supports huge images and has been tested with gigapixel-size images. GraphicsMagick can create new images on the fly, making it suitable for building dynamic Web applications. GraphicsMagick may be used to resize, rotate, sharpen, color reduce, or add special effects to an image and save the result in the same or different image format. Image processing operations are available from the command line, as well as through C, C++, Lua, Perl, PHP, Python, Tcl, Ruby, Windows .NET, or Windows COM programming interfaces.

General purpose graphics converter. Can convert PDF pages to images. Resizes images, makes them transparent and includes a number of other functions.

Mostly command line, but there are some X11 GUI tools included.

GraphicsMagick is quite portable, and compiles under almost every general purpose operating system that runs on 32-bit or 64-bit CPUs. GraphicsMagick is available for virtually any Unix or Unix-like system, including Linux. It also runs under Windows 2000 and later (Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8.X, 10), and MacOS-X.
