Because of this, past users of montage often used large numbers such as ” x1 ” to generate a single row of images. Now such a argument will produce a very long image, and could take a long time for IM to complete.

Avoid the use of very large tile numbers in IM montage! And while it still can be used for that purpose, it can also do a lot more.

This page examines what you can do with montage, and how you can use it on your own images. Montage, Introduction The ” montage ” command is designed to produce an array of thumbnail images.

Command-line Tools: Convert @ ImageMagick

Sort of like a proof sheet of a large imgaemagick of images. The default ” montage ” with no options is very plain, with quite large containment squares, no frame, labels, or shadows.

The strange ” [] ” syntax is a UNIX shell shorthand, which is expanded into a list of filenames. The ” montage ” command itself does not see these characters, just the resulting list of files.

Montage — IM v6 Examples

Num Images Tile Setting 1 1×1 2 2×1 3 3×1 4 2×2 5 – 6 3×2 7 – 8 4×2. Num Images Tile Setting 9 3×3 10 – 12 4×3 13 – 15 5×3 16 – 20 5×4 21 – 24 6×4 25 5×5. Num Images Tile Setting 26 – 30 6×5 31 – 36 7×5 31 – 35 7×5 36 6×6 37 – 42 7×6 43 – 48 8×6. As such a setting such as the first ” 9×1 ” image would have been truncated to produce a ” 7×1 ” tile image. The ” -border ” decoration does not currently work when the Frame Decoration is also applied.


That is border would have been thus added to the image long before the images get resized according to ” -geometry “which resulted in different border widths around each image depending on the size of the image at that point. It was to remove this inconsistancy that -border became a special montage setting. If the image size was modified, such as during input this may be different to the images in disk or creation size. There is no method, at this time to allow montaged images to span multiple rows or columns, as you can in HTML tables.

Nor can you generate variable sized rows and columns to best fit the array of images being generated. If you really need this sort of ability you will need to develop your own montage type of application. If you do develop something, then please contribute, and we’ll see about merging it into the existing montage application. Some solutions for this includes labeling and framing the image thumbnails yourself and then using either Append Images or use a more free form Layering Image technique.

The color outside the drawn frame. Often this is set to the ‘ none ‘ or ‘ transparent ‘, for use on web pages. The -texture setting will be used instead if given.



The fill color inside the frame for images, or any border padding. Any transparent areas in an image will become this color, adjoni no such decoration is added.

The color used as the frame color. Note that the color is also made lighter and darker to give the frame a beveled 3D look.

So this setting really defines 5 colors.

See also Framing Images. IM Examples Photo Store. This is important as the image is being resized as it is read in. The former will label the images with their original pixel size as it is on disk, while the latter will use the current resized size of the image.

This is something that is easily overlooked by users. This also includes a copy of the previous image map. Visual Index of Photo Store. Basically the resulting image map will be as if the generated montage was a true equally divided ‘array’ of images, rather than a concatenation adkoin the images in line.

In other words it is wrong for lines of ‘short’ images. In some versions you would see through the framed image to the background color or texture.

On others you might get black, or white. In still other versions you would be able to see though all the layers and the final image would be transparent where the original image was transparent. Upgrade NOW if this is a problem for you.
