imagemagick does not open

Postby vinoman » Sun Jan 11, 2009 11:56 am

I was going to learn imagemagick and I see that it's installed in synaptic, but when I try to open it by running:
$ imagemagick it says it can't open, like its not there. How do you open imagemagick?

vinoman,

imagemagick, is a set of CLI tools. Look at the url below to get an idea of how they are used.

How do you know if imagemagick is installed? when I type imagemagick at the command line it says command not found. How do you start using this program?
