  • 2007-09-12 6.3.5-9 Anthony <anthony@griffith...>
  • Major Addition, Area Resampling Functions, (scaled interpolation) for pixel lookup in Distortion functions. This improves the look in areas of minification enormousally, especially in situations of infinite tiling and horizon views. All virtual pixel methods have been handled to minimise computation time involved with area resampling. To use the new function distortions need to be able to determine scaling vectors (distortion function derivitives) for correct working. All -distort methods, except Arc, uses scaled area resampling.
  • Improvements to perspective distort method, to include the correct differentation between the 'ground' on which the image lies, and the 'sky', the color of which can be set using the -mattecolor setting (as the distortion invalid pixel color). Background color is retains for surrounding ground areas. The horizon is also correct anti-aliased and transparent colors are also allowed, allowing you to add backdrops of gradients and patterns.

  • Fixed a dependancy ordering problem in the top-level Makefile.

  • 2004-09-14 Steve Turner <norseman@first...>
  • Changed the I variable to image in coders/mat.c. It appears I is defined in the Slackware header files and it caused a compile error.

  • 2004-09-13 Chris Madison <madisonblu@hotma...>
  • Some Postscript files were not translated properly when read.
  • DestroyImage() was previous void, now it returns (Image *) NULL to force the image to a known value and to detect logic errors in the program (any reference to image after it is destroyed will cause a fault). Other destroy methods will be changed in this manner as well. Note, this change will not affect existing programs that rely on these methods.

  • 2004-09-13 Bengt-Arne Fjellner <Bengt-Arne.Fjellner@ltu.s...>

  • Only scale FITS pixels if they are float/double.

  • 2004-08-06 Anthony Thyssen <anthony@griff...>
  • Images with less than 256 unique colors, retain the exact colors. Previously some close colors were merged (e.g. 253 and 255 were averaged to 254).
  • Added -repage option, like -page but it acts as an image operator rather than a setting.

  • 2004-08-04 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • PNG vulnerability fix.
  • Added YCbCr coder for raw Y, Cb, and Cr samples.
  • Fixed the -fx option operator precendence problem (+ and - should be the same precendence).

  • Sync pixel cache when cloning an image-- just in case someone clones an image clone and accesses pixels with AcquireImagePixel() instead of GetImagePixels().

  • 2004-07-09 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <randeg@alum.rpi.edu>
  • coders/bmp.c (ReadBMPImage): Removed if-test on reading red_mask, green_mask, and blue_mask. These are only *valid* under certain conditions, but they are always present in the file.

  • Fixed PerlMagick memory leak for corrupt TIFF images.
  • MagickBooleanType changed from unsigned int to an enum for stronger type checking. This should not affect the C API, however, for the C++ API you can no longer use `bool' instead of MagickTrue/MagickFalse for the methods that require a MagickBooleanType.

  • 2004-06-23 Suryakant Patidar <surya_iiit@lyco...>
  • Add copious usability features to the animate program.

  • 2004-06-22 Chris Madison <madisonblu@hotma...>

  • The active_list variable must be reset when a list is destroyed.

  • 2004-05-18 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • Introduce MagickBooleanType and MagickStatusType types of unsigned int. These types are 100% compatible with the existing API but removes ambiguity. Previously we got complaints that users did not realize that a return value of unsigned int in most cases meant a binary value (True/ False). MagickStatusType is used for methods that return a bit mask.
  • Introduce MagickFalse and MagickTrue while we deprecate True/False.

  • 2004-05-18 David Strobach <strobach@exec...>
  • Don't open a loadable module if its already open.

  • 2004-05-14 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • Most Wand methods return an `unsigned int' where True indicates success and False indicates an error. We enhanced these methods to return MagickBooleanType and MagickTrue/MagickFalse to make it less ambiguous. Note these changes are 100% compatible so existing Wand calls will continue to work as written.

  • 2004-05-14 Eli Barzilay <li@barzi...>
  • DrawSetStrokeDashArray() now respects the number_elements argument.

  • Updated the dot coder to use the new graphviz 1.12 API.
  • The next/previous fields of the configuration structures (magick_info, type_info, etc.) are deprecated, instead use the Get???InfoList() method (e.g. GetTypeInfoList()).

  • 2004-04-07 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • ColorFloodfillImage() with FillToBorder option stopped working in 6.0.0. Fixed now (bug report by Tim Hunter)..

  • 2004-04-05 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • GetColorInfoList() returns an array of ColorInfo structures. Also added similar methods for each of the ImageMagick lists (e.g. magick, delegate, etc.).

  • 2004-03-22 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • Frame decorations are opaque if the matte color is opaque.

  • 2004-03-15 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • Added CombineImages() to combine several grayscale images into a single image (e.g. convert -channel RGB image.R image.G image.B -combine logo.png).

  • 2004-03-08 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • Added EvaluateImageChannel() method to the API. Use it to apply an an arithmetic, relational, or logical operator to an image. These operations can be used to lighten or darken an image, to increase or decrease contrast in an image, or to produce the "negative" of an image.

  • 2004-03-07 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • Added a pixel iterator to the MagickWand API (suggested by Kyle Shorter).

  • 2004-03-05 Teemu Ikonen <tpikonen@pcu.h...>
  • fixed the Matlab file reader read also files written in little-endian architectures.

  • 2004-02-10 Alexandra Christini <achristini@bigpl...>
  • Reset errno in PerlMagick constant() method.

  • 2004-02-20 <yarrow@image...>

  • 2004-02-05 Anthony Thyssen <anthony@griff...>
  • Expand the range of -dissolve to go from 0 to 200. That is values 0 to 100 slowly dissolve the overlay onto the background. But then values 100 to 200 slowly dissolve the background away until it is just the source image on top of a clear canvas the size of the original background.

  • 2004-01-30 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • Added -separate to the convert program to separate a channel from an image and return a grayscale image (suggested by Anthony Thyssen).

  • 2004-02-02 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <randeg@alum.rpi.edu>

  • Text annotate respects gravity (suggested by Anthony Thyssen).
  • Add latest TIFF library to ImageMagick Windows distribution.

  • 2003-12-22 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <glennrp@image...>
  • Added JPEG Quality, JPEG Colorspace, and JPEG Sampling factors to the "identify -verbose" report. Added "-define jpeg:preserve-settings" flag. If this is set, and the input and output formats are both JPEG, the input quality is used to compress the output file.

  • 2003-11-03 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • Added EPT2 and EPT3 image types which embeds Postscript level II and Postscript level III repectively.
  • Text compression is limited to 65535 bytes for the PNG coder (libpng restriction).
  • To write an image clip mask, use the CLIP: coder.
  • Added GetImageExtrema() and GetImageChannelExtrema() to return the extrema for an image or image channel.
  • Added GetImageMean() and GetImageChannelMeand() to return the mean and standard deviation for an image or image channel.

  • 2003-11-01 Lars Ruben Skyum <lars.skyum@stibo.com>
  • coders/jpeg.c: changed to not write gray CMYK images as grayscales. That would not be a valid optimization.
  • magick/color.c (IsGrayImage, IsMonochromeImage): Changed to never return true for CMYK images. Separated images get wrong colors when optimized to grayscales based on what these two functions return. Gray and CMYK are two different color spaces.
  • magick/nt_feature.c (NTIsMagickConflict): changed to accept colon as part of the magick string, consistent with the way the function is used.
  • magick/utility.c, magick/utility.h (ExpandFilenames, GetPathComponent): Fixed filename glob expansion. Added handling of filename prefix-magick and sub-image specification to GetPathComponent. Sub-image specification takes precedence over any filename patterns.

  • 2003-11-01 Kenneth J. Davis <jeremyd@computer.{org}>
  • Fixed assertion error in GetConfigureOptions().

  • 2003-10-29 Tony Butt <magick-bugs>

  • 2003-10-09 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <glennrp@image...>
  • When JPEG sampling factors aren't fully supplied, any omitted ones should be 1x1.

  • 2003-10-08 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • Added Get*List() to consistently return ImageMagick lists (e.g. GetMagickList() returns a list of support image formats).
  • Added -define option to support options associated with an image format (e.g. -define ps3:imagemask).

  • 2003-10-08 Kelly Bergougnoux <three3@users.sourceforge.{net}>
  • Contributed new Cineon image format coder.

  • 2003-10-08 Lars Ruben Skyum <lars.skyum@stibo.com>
  • magick/attribute.c (TraceSVGClippingPath): optimized for speed and precision in clipping mask generation by using lines to connect Bezier curve control points where applicable.

  • 2003-09-30 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <glennrp@image...>
  • The PNG decoder would exit too early when reading file.png[0].

  • Wrote an option parser to uniformly deal with enumerated types.

  • 2003-09-30 Glenn Randers-Pehrson <glennrp@image...>
  • In the Q8 configuration, the bmp decoder was scaling 5-5-5-bit and 5-6-5-bit colors slightly incorrectly when decoding 16-bit BMPs, as well as when decoding 8-8-8-8-bit colors in 32-bit BMPs.

  • 2003-09-26 Cristy <yarrow@image...>

  • 2003-09-21 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • Image profiles are now conveniently handled with a hashmap structure. The color_profile and iptc_profile members of the Image structure are still maintained for backwards compatibility, however, we encourage you to use the new PutImageProfile(), GetImageProfile(), and DeleteImageProfile() methods.

  • 2003-09-20 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • Error messages are enhanced to give greater detail. Use -debug Exception to trace the source location of an error.

  • 2003-09-18 Lars Ruben Skyum <lars.skyum@stibo.com>
  • coders/ps3.c: Major update of the PS3 coder. The coder now creates much smaller files for bilevel, gray, and colormapped images. Compression and image type is now separated so they may be combined independently. Any alpha channel is separated into a separate mask so it's possible to mask bilevel, gray, colormapped, rgb, and CKYK images. You may also mask a JPEG compressed PS file for instance. Clipping masks created from a photoshop clipping path with -clip option is converted to a corresponding postscript clipping path. New functions need comment headers.
  • magick/attribute.c: Added TracePSClippingPath for creating a postscript clipping path from a Photoshop clipping path.
  • magick/image.c: ClipPathImage now stores the name of the clipping path in the mask image filename so that it is remembered and may be used for creating a postscript clipping path for postscript output.

  • 2003-09-16 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • There is a new ImageMagick license (see http://www.imagemagick.org/www/license.html). It is a W3C-style rather than BSD-style license to address the frequently-asked-questions about what the license permits you to do. It makes it more clear that you can do pretty much whatever you want with ImageMagick as long as you don't claim your wrote it.

  • 2003-09-12 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • Created a number of new header files to localize exported methods.

  • Fixed "Draw transparent color on background image without alpha" bug (bug report by Anthony Thyssen).
  • -fuzz now accept negative values.

  • 2003-07-17 Lars Ruben Skyum <lars.skyum@st...>
  • support for grayscale color profiles. You may now convert to/from CMYK or RGB from/to grayscale with a grayscale profile. This is what Photoshop does when it creates grayscales from color images or makes true color images from grayscales.
  • any alpha channel is now maintained across colorspace conversions. It was previously lost in the conversions.
  • colormapped images may now be profiled with a color profile. They were previously passed through unchanged.
  • improved error handling. Any invalid colorspace / color profile combination is now catched in ImageMagick before LCMS gets a chance to catch the same error. LCMS will exit() the program the hard way if it catches such an error. ImageMagick clean-up routines will now be performed on exit.
  • support for the two remaining colorspaces, YCbCr and LUV, for which there is support in both ImageMagick and LCMS (or ICC 3.4, really). Profiles using other ICC 3.4 colorspaces not supported by ImageMagick will now properly throw an exception before LCMS exit's the application.

  • 2003-07-16 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • Added -clippath to convert (patch provided by Lars Ruben Skyum).
  • Fix transparent font problem (bug report by Anthony Thyssen).

  • 2003-07-13 Cristy <yarrow@image...>

  • Properly read CMYK TIFF images (bug report by Lars Ruben Skyum ).

  • 2003-07-10 Cristy <yarrow@image...>
  • Recall the MagickWand API is in flux. The drawing wand methods that previously accepted or returned a PixelPacket now accepts/returns a PixelWand. The MagickWand API should be stable by the end of this year.
