Using Imagemagick

I just downloaded ImageMagick, which seems like a very useful image converter. However, since there is no UI and it’s command line only, I wonder if anybody has made a simple UI for it in Livecode, to generate the necessary shell commands to do commonly needed operations.

I wonder how it compares to the stack distributed awhile ago that was called “scalini”. 

ImageMagick makes animated gifs and can do a lot of useful conversions.

I’ve also been using a program called iDraw, which has many nice features and seems to be oriented toward mobile development too.

I’m using OSX, El Capitan.
