Why can't ImageMagick be run from a script?

jdgrimes 7 years ago in Other / Image Editing 0
I am on a shared server, and would like to use ImageMagick to convert an SVG file to a jpeg image, but I have found that I can't run ImageMagick from within a PHP script. According to this page, it can only be run from the command line, or, on a shared server by using exec() or a cron job:

1) Why aren't the API's installed?
2) Is it possible to install them? Or is using exec() or a cron job really my only option?

installing Imagick extension to php?

JesseH 7 years ago in Other / Image Editing 0
Is it possible to install the pecl Imagick extension to php?

If not, is it preferable from a security point of view to invoke Imagemagick directly from php using exec(), shell_exec, system(), or something else?

Image Magick directory path in Omeka?

JesseH 7 years ago in Other / Image Editing 0
According to the documentation ("Is ImageMagick installed on the servers?"), Image Magick is located at /usr/bin/convert and /usr/bin/mogrify. When I insert either (or both) of these addresses in the Omeka Settings page, the test fails.

GD library, what TrueType (ttf) fonts are available?

mikeling 8 years ago in Other / Image Editing 0
Using the GD library to create images on the fly, I'm trying to use the imagettftext() function which asks for the path of a truetype font as one of its parameters.

Reference:
http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.imagettftext.php

What fonts are available, and can I specify the path in a way such as: "./arial.ttf"?

Web Site Photo Gallery

Marlow 8 years ago in Other / Image Editing 0
I would like to add a full featured, but simple to use, photo gallery application to my web server. In Fantastico there are three open source photo gallery applications, which are 4images, Coppermine, and Gallery. I tried to install Gallery but after two weeks of going back and forth with both Gallery forums and one tech support request through Inmotion, the issue was never resolved. The setting for the php.ini file was in question. The tag needs to be set to open, and according to Inmotion, it is. Which brought me back full circle and never being able to install the application and a waste of two weeks effort.

I just want something I can install and start putting up photo galleries without drama and workarounds. I will pay for a license if it means something that will work out of the box. I am also willing to pay a fee for someone to install the application and get it working, if it's so complicated.

Thanks!
