    Hello

    I have a client who wants to use ImageMagick from his PhP files? I understand from reading around that ImageMagick will not function in PhP safe mode? Is this correct? If so is there a way around this?

    Could someone please give me a simple example of how ImageMagick would be used to say simply resize a file?

    Use the exec command I assume.

    Anyhow, I look forward to hearing from somene.

    Thank you.

    As a followup....How do I give a particular client access to use the ImageMagick binaries.

    programs like gallery use ImageMagick for image manipulation - anyway, google should give you some example scripts to test imagemagick.

    Good luck ! :)

    I use it a lot in PHP to auto-generate thumbnails, resize and convert large *.bmp files to smaller *.gif files for my customers that don't understand the difference between 'web size' and 'print size'.

    It's a great module to use with PHP and I highly recommend installing it.

    As much as I do use it, if I were hosted on a server that didn't offer it, I would move elsewhere just for that.
