Can someone tell me how to check if Imagemagick is installed? I've tried installing it using the scripts in /scripts but it says failed. I'm using FreeBSD and I think it may already be installed.

Also, how can I check which version is installed and what the path is?

Try

# whereis convert

That will tell you if its installed.

Usually, /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin you will find convert

You can also try the command line, to convert and image.

ie

# convert -raise 10x10 some.png some-raised.png

It looks like it's installed "convert: /usr/local/bin/convert", but what would be the path that needs to be entered on a script that requires it to be installed?

Any way to check which version is installed?

Why is it called convert instead of ImageMagick?

The path for scripts will vary, it's either /usr/local/bin or /usr/local/bin/convert (depends if they need full path or installlation directory)

You can check the version, from your ports, where it was installed from or

# convert -version

I' suggest having a look at the ImageMagick site, to see what other functions can be used
