I have been recently hit by ImageMagick/Rmagick memory leak issues.
I know I can lesson the problem by manually starting up GC each time
I use Rmagick library but ImageMagick seems to use way too much
memory nevertheless. (on shared hosting setup anyway)
Is there a decent replacement for ImageMagick library? I used to
think ImageMagick was quite efficient because its speed was order of
magnitude faster than pure java image libraries. Is it really a
resource hog, or is it just the way it is with image processing? (I
normally use ImageMagick only for resizing/cropping images, nothing
I will appreciate any comments or suggestions, thanks!
