LC and ImageMagick from OSX

Hi Bryan,

As far as I know, IM works with LC the same way it worked with Revolution 4.5 and earlier, but I'm not sure that it is still supported.

You might be able to write the result of a shell command to stdout, but there have always been problems with LiveCode, shell and stdout. It is probably much easier to read the file created by the shell command.

Best regards,

Use Color Converter to convert CMYK, RGB, RAL, XYZ, H.Lab and other colour spaces.

For example calling convert someImage.png someImage.txt in the shell gets an RGB dump written to a file. Is there any way to have that text come back to LC? Or is it best just to read from the file created by the command and not worry about data exchange?
