    Hello,

    If ImageMagick is installed is it necessary to install imagick separately OR its get installed when ImageMagick is installing on the server.

    Confusion :(

    ImageMagick and imagick are two separate items in which do not get installed together automatically.

    ImageMagick is a set of programs that help you create and manipulate images.

    Imagick is a PEAR extension for php developers to access the ImageMagick software via an API.
    PECL :: Package :: imagick

    Installing Imagick will give you internal ImageMagick functionality from PHP
    without having to have the external "convert" binary available in the user's path.

    Imagick is purely optional and is not required but is a good idea to install
    this for PHP but to answer your question, does not install when you
    install ImageMagick and you have to go through an entirely different
    insteall process as you will need to phpize compile it as a loadable module
    for PHP or directly build it into the PHP binary itself.
