For security reasons, from phpBB 3.2.4 the execution of external programs was disabled (see the official announcement) . Because of that thumbnails for images can only be generated by using php internal functions. By default, this is handled by the gd-library. But for high-quality images, using the ImageMagick function provides better results. This extension uses the php-library for ImageMagick without the need to specify a absolute path to the executables.
