Update thumbnails to ImageMagick
« on: September 27, 2005, 03:13:29 am »

Hey I did a few searches and looked in the FAQ - but still I can't find the answer.
So far my site has uploaded approximately 100 photos using the GD compression.

I finally got imagemagick to work, is there a way I can update my current photo's on the website without damaging title/desc/keywords ?

no difference at all when using coppermine. The advanced stuff that makes ImageMagick superior to GD is not being used from within coppermine. The results will be the same, so I can see no reason to go through all your pics and re-create the thumbs and intermediates. The only advantage that ImageMagick has that can actually be used is the fact that you can add your custom parameters to the command line call of ImageMagick, but (and there always is a "but"): you'll have to be an expert to use those parameters, and ImagMagick doesn't throw meaningful error messages if things fail. Additionally, the parameters differ from one ImageMagick version to the other. Much Ado About Nothing if you ask me, you could have kept GD.

haha thanks GauGau.

I can't tell you how much trouble I went through to find the right path to ImageMagick. I thought it was some miracle worker.

Thanks for all your hard work and continual support on these forums.
