The big thing to keep in mind about Imagemagick is that at any one
time, 25% of it is so faulty it's useless. With each release, it's a
different 25%. Possibilities include generation of postscript output
which produces stack underflows on every interpreter, making it obvious
that the programmer hasn't tried his product even once.
I still use a version 3.9.1 of 5 years ago, because I know that those
functions I use work. 5.4.2 is almost at the same point, but it's
noticably slower, in some cases (of simple image scaling) taking >3
times the amount of CPU time. Perhaps it's doing a better job.
Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be another command line program
which does similar jobs.
