ImageMagick Disabled: How to check if true

Post by steve59 »

Dear reader,

If I have no ImageMagick path specified in my ACP (under Board configuraion > attachments settings)
can I then be sure that my board is not using ImageMagick anywhere?

If not, how can I make sure that phpbb doens't use ImageMagick?

Best regards,
Steve

If you are talking about GD image CAPTCHA, it has been broken many ears ago and is completely ineffective.

No my posts are about image manipulation support (Imagemagick or GD, how to switch between them)

In attachment management, gd or imagemagick are only used for generating the thumbnail of attached images. There is no "image manipulation" ...
Why do you refuse imagemagick? It has much better algorithms for resampling images than gd, it keeps meta information(for example exif data) for the thumbnail, keeps animation in gifs etc.

If you want to build a extension, you can decide if you want to use gd-function (those are php-commands like "image..." -> http://php.net/manual/en/book.image.php ) or imagemagick, which is a separate set of binaries, which are executed via shell-command.
