You can see the ImageMagick version by telneting or ssh'ing into the server and typing this at the shell prompt:

/usr/X11R6/bin/convert | head -n 1

You should see output like:

Version: @(#)ImageMagick 5.4.5 05/01/02 Q:16

If you call these things like:

exec("/usr/X11R6/bin/mogrify file1 file2", $result);

Then you can check $result to see what happened like this:

while(list($k, $v) = each($result)) {
echo "$k: $v \n";

To use ImageMagick go to and go through the examples there. First become familiar with executing commands through the shell prompt.

convert htdocs/www/test/1.jpg -thumbnail 90x90 /htdocs/www/test/1_tn.jpg
(converts 1.jpg into a thumbnail named 1_tn.jpg confined to 90x90)

To call any ImageMagick command in your PHP scripts:

exec("/usr/bin/convert /htdocs/www/test/2.jpg -thumbnail 90x90 /htdocs/www/test/1_tn.jpg", $result);
