"ImageMagick is a software suite to create, edit, and compose bitmap images. It can read, convert and write images in a variety of formats (over 100) including DPX, EXR, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PDF, PhotoCD, PNG, Postscript, SVG, and TIFF. Use ImageMagick to translate, flip, mirror, rotate, scale, shear and transform images, adjust image colors, apply various special effects, or draw text, lines, polygons, ellipses and B├ęzier curves." [1]

Be sure to login to the cluster with -X flag to be able to view images, e.g.

> ssh -X

Add ImageMagick to your software environment:

> softenv | grep -i image
> soft add +ImageMagick-6.2.5

Note: For more information on the software environment, please see the page User Environment.
