Image Magick transparency problem

Saturday 10 May 2003 2:19:03 pm - 6 replies

Has anyone else experienced trouble with uploading transparent gifs? I think it may be a global setting somewhere but I am unable to find it. Any transparent gif that is uploaded has its transparency colour replaced with solid black.

Anyone have knowledge of this??

I didn't have any problems with transparents GIFs, using ImageMagick in ezP 2.2.

Really sounds like an imagemagick (configuration) problem.

And are you familar with its settings? I looked in /etc/magic but there wasn't anything in there.

Yes, we have that problem too. Even when you fix image.ini so it doesn't convert everything to png's. It appears not to convert them correctly.

Strange but my image.ini settings didn't have the settings the bug report added but it was still converting gifs to gifs. My problem is only the transparency which I have still not solved yet.

Strange... Well i'm gald its not that... I've taken a read of the ImageMagick site and it look like convert supports it... Have you tried converting the gif from the command lline to see if its Imagemagick or eZ parameters that are causing the problem

Oops, rather embarrasing. It was as you suggested the incorrect image settings in image.ini, but I failed to noticed image.ini.php *blush*, I was also thrown off because the converted image extension did say .gif but when you look at the code of the image it was infact a png. So thank you for your help, works well now happy.gif Emoticon
