GraphicsMagick is a robust collection of tools and libraries which support reading, writing, and manipulating an image in over 90 major formats including popular formats like DPX, DICOM, BMP, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PDF, PNG, PNM, SVG, and TIFF. A high-quality 2D renderer is included, which provides a subset of SVG capabilities. C, C++, Perl, Tcl, and Ruby are supported. Originally based on ImageMagick, GraphicsMagick focuses on performance, minimizing bugs, and providing stable APIs and ABIs. It runs on all modern variants of Unix, Windows, and Mac OS X.


Many bugs are fixed, including some that caused deadlocks or crashes. EXIF profiles are preserved when writing JPEG files, the benchmark facility now includes a mode for benchmarking with varying threads, the netpbm PAM format is supported, and the BigTIFF format supported under Windows.
