Adding ImageMagick to your toolbox

Many of you are familiar with the usual image processing software, like Gimp, where the mouse is used to interact with the software. This is usually a convenient and fairly intuitive way to use a piece of software because you can work on an image, manipulate the mouse and see the effects immediately. While this works well when you are working on a single image, what happens when you have hundreds of images to work on? This is increasingly becoming more common due to the use of more digital cameras. It is a chore, for example, to put a timestamp on, convert the format, or resize all the images one at a time. Ah, this is where ImageMagick comes into play.

  • Groups: IBM; Story Type: Interview
High-performance software developers may be getting a leg up on the latest hardware advances with a new set of open source software tools for developing scientific libraries created by U.S. university researchers. They claim the "new breed" of software they've created, dubbed "SPIRAL," could revolutionize how computer code is written, particularly in light of the latest advances in high-performance hardware that is often, as in the case of IBM's Blue Gene/L supercomputer, running Linux. The automatic code generator, which provides a broad range of solutions to identify optimal signal processing and math functions, spits out high-quality code that is less buggy, saving testing and time, Carnegie Mellon University professor and researcher Jose Moura told NewsForge/ITMJ in a recent interview.
