A Step By Step Guide On How To Install Imagemagick On FreeBSD
So Imagemagick or GD? I don’t know all depends on your needs. I’m really not that familiar with the difference between them to be honest. I know there are some benchmark tests and the such out there but I have not really invested time in reading up on it. As such both work just fine for my needs. So I usually install both, as some CMS require Imagemagick and others GD.

You can grab a Imagemagick [here]. As of writing I have only been able to successfully install version 6.8.0-8. The install procedure however is the same for all versions. I guess it will end up in “trial and error approach” regarding what version you get working.

tar zxvfp ImageMagick-6.8.0-8.tar.gz
cd ImageMagick-6.8.0-8
./configure
make install clean

Finally test if things are working as intended.

If this completes without errors you are good to go.

And we are done here.

Spell checkers don’t – Grammar checkers don’t either.
