Well, if you change to ImageMagick without having it installed, then nothing will happen to the images. So make sure that IM is available. You might have to provide the path to the convert binary in config as well.
Secondly, just changing to IM won’t help either, because the default IM driver strips the image information. That’s why I said you need a custom driver.
I need to use the gd libary for thumb generation, but for animated gifs I want use Image Magick. So I’m landed here in this thread. I’m wondering where and how the check could be done. Do I need a custom Darkroom Renderer?
We have very large photos and im’s limit seems to be to small for our needs.
I didnt find a way to change this limitations.
The images have to be available in big resolutions, so we cant restrict the upload sizes.
On the other hand we dont want to loose the gif-animations.
In my case thumbs of jpgs with original size 6000x4000 are not rendered by “im”. At now I’m still developing on the build-in-php server. The production server will be a rented host. Maybe I have to test it online first.
