Hi all,

My ImageAPI version : Last release 6.x-1.x-dev (2009-May-30)
And Image version : Last release 6.x-1.x-dev (2009-Aug-10)

In this issue : http://drupal.org/node/264346
Stilblütler requested for support of "ImageMagick Advanced Options" in ImageAPI.
It was done for sharpening. But only sharpening I think.

Would it be possible to have also support for "Strip metadata from images" ?
"ImageMagick Advanced Options" offers this option to reduce site bandwidth for images.

More generally would it be possible for ImageAPI module to use all "ImageMagick Advanced Options" options like Image module does ?
It would make a dependance with this module but it would prevent to rewrite same code in both.

Thx a lot for your help.

Any latest news ?

You can use the ImageMagick Raw action module to supply almost any ImageMagick command line option.
To strip metadata make a new ImageCache IM raw action with a command: -strip
That's it.

Thank you very much for your response.
I didn't see that module before.

There is also 'ImageMagick Advanced Options' module - see http://groups.drupal.org/node/6699. It comes with, but is not dependent on, Image module, but works great for ImageCache as well. If you don't need the rest of Image module, this can be enabled by itself.

My first post was about this alternative.

I enabled "ImageMagick Advanced Options" module with -strip option.
But it worked only for images generated by Image module and not by ImageCache module.
That's why I've posted this issue.

I'm sorry, I must have been dreaming. I obviously didn't read your original question. My response looks rather silly now......

Have you asked at http://drupal.org/node/add/project-issue/image to see if the image_im_advanced module can be improved?

No, not yet.
In my opinion Image and image_im_advanced modules have done the job. It works.
If a hook is missing to do it in ImageAPI module, OK, maybe it needs an improvement in image_im_advanced module.
But nobody responded me in ImageAPI module team till now.

Maintainer Wanted
I asked the Image project team at http://drupal.org/node/735498 , but it turns out that "ImageMagick Advanced Options" module is an old project that has been through several pairs of hands, and the current maintainer knows nothing whatsoever about ImageMagick.

Further, he states that "If anyone wants to volunteer to maintain that particular module, that would be fantastic. I'm open to suggestions for moving it to ImageAPI too."

So, if anyone would like to try improving "ImageMagick Advanced Options", it's all yours.
