Image magic with ImageMagick

Recently I made an activex control to measure PDF floor plan (see below). The most difficult thing was to load PDF in picturebox. Fortunately I found ImageMagick library, which can not only convert almost any graphic file to another, but also process images whatever way you like: resize, rotate, add shapes, animate, special effects, etc, ect. Very cool staff, check it out!

Hey Alex - I also ran into ImageMagick a long time ago but never used it. Thanks for the reminder, I may have a use for it.

Did you evaluate the license carefully? It says gpl compatible. But gpl says if you link to gpl software via library, you have to gpl the calling software. but I don't read the ImageMagick license like that...so I'm not sure what it adds up to.

Hi,
not sure that i need to make it GPL, look here:
http://magick.imagemagick.org/script/license.php

as i see, if i would distribute my component - i need to:
- include a copy of the license
- provide clear attribution to ImageMagick Studio LLC

or just ask user to install imagemagick on his own, right?
