GD vs. Imagemagick V6
« on: June 06, 2005, 11:17:35 pm »  -Does this post still hold true with regards to Imagemagick V6? I am moving to a new server and have installed Imagemagick in case it is, but I am wondering in terms of resources NOW which is a better one to use.I am mainly concerned about server resources, especially when dealing with LARGE 8 megapixel files, but quality does come second (i'm sure they're both as sufficient though)  Also, I used the Cpanel RPM to install so what is the standard location for Imagemagick to be installed.

If you plan on resizing large pixel images, then you will have to use ImageMagick, as you would run into memory issues with PHP/GD2.  I have no raw data on server resources, but I would have to imagine that v6+ is more efficient than v5.  That's just a guess - you could always check out the ImageMagick forums and ask over there.  They are in a much better position to give you that kind of data.

/usr/local/bin/ and /usr/bin/ are common installation locations.  You'll have to ask your host for the specific location.
Do not send me a private message unless I ask for one.  Make your post public so everyone can benefit.
