Allows to use ImageMagick as image toolkit for Image API in Drupal 7 core.


  • ImageMagick needs to be installed on your server and the convert binary needs to be accessible and executable from PHP.
  • The PHP configuration must allow invocation of proc_open() (which is security-wise identical to exec()).

Consult your server administrator or hosting provider if you are unsure about these requirements.

Note: GraphicsMagick, a performance fork of ImageMagick (like Pressflow to Drupal) should work as well. Just replace the convert executable with gm in the image toolkit settings.

Installation and configuration

  • Install as usual, see for further information.
  • Go to Administration » Configuration » Media » Image toolkit and change the image toolkit to ImageMagick.
  • If the convert binary cannot be found in the default shell path, you need to enter the full path to ImageMagick's convert executable, including the filename itself.
