on the DB Group Machines
A package called ImageMagickTM
has been installed on the Solaris machines
(Sole, Hake,...). This is a nice set of both interactive and command line
programs for editing, converting, and annotating images in various formats
such as PS, JPG, GIF, TIFF, MS-WindowsBMP, etc. E.g., you can use it to
convert a PS figure into TIFF which can be inserted and previewed in PowerPoint.
Version: ImageMagick, version 3.8.1.
Availability: Sun Solaris machines.
- Add /usr/lib:/local/lib to your LD shared library path.
E.g., add the following line to your .cshrc:
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /usr/lib:/local/lib

File Format. Note: not all formats are available in our
installation. Let me know if your are looking for a particular format not
Man Pages are also installed (in /local/man/).
may be of particular interest. It can convert to and from many file
formats, such as PS, EPS, TIFF, GIF, JPG, MS-WindowsBMP, etc. For example:
// convert GIF to TIFF and rotate 90 degrees.
convert -rotate 90 slide.gif
// convert PS to GIF, with higher resolution
for better fonts:
convert -density 288
-geometry 25% slide.ps slide.gif
