Hi again,

Can Coppermine work together with the GraphicsMagick instead of ImageMagick?

Thanks, Thomas

Very Quick answer.

But nope means I have to use ImageMagick or GD.
What is better in your opinion? I have to install it on a new Server...

GD is easier to set up in the first place, as it comes with regular PHP packages. It has the drawback that it only supports jpg, gif and png, while ImageMagick can be used for other image formats as well (although those additional image formats that ImageMagick supports shouldn't be used on the web imo, as they're uncompressed bandwidth eaters). When using GD2, the memory limits set up in php.ini apply for processing pics, while those limitations don't apply to ImageMagick. When using GD2 to process multiple pics (e.g. when batch-adding), the pics are being treated one after the other, keeping server load to a certain max amount, while ImageMagick triggers several parallel processes that can bring a server down if you add too many pics in one single session (server freezes). Both methods have advantages and disadvantages, but as I already suggested: GD is much easier to set up in the first place, so I'd go for it. Unless you're a very experienced pro, self-hosting isn't recommended anyway.
