What’s up?

The blog has been quiet lately, so lets get it going again. I’ll have some geek topics to get the ball rolling.  Over the next few days, I will go over some of the tools I use on the Mac. One of the tools that I will describe is ImageMagick.

I mainly use it to put a copyright on my images and also to resize some images. All this is done from the command line in OS X and it can then be integrated in the raw processor that I use, Bibble 5 Pro. Over the next few blog posts, I’ll explain how I accomplish this.

ImageMagick® is an extremely powerful tool. It is fully cross-platform so it run on Mac OS X, Windows Unix and many others. I got exposed to ImageMagick® back in the ’90s on Silicon Graphics systems running IRIX® but it wasn’t till recently that I really started using it more actively. Anyway, I am dating myself here 🙂 so I’ll get back to the subject at hand. As an example of the copyright, here is a photo of the Newcastle canoe pool.
