Mini_magick vs image_science


#1

I simply want to resize images. Which is easier to install/use and uses
less memory?


#2

oh, and I mean to install mini_magick or image_science themselves, and
all their required programs and whatnot.

depends on what you have installed already. do you have image magick
installed?

I don’t have anything installed :smiley:

I have mac osx, so I have ruby, and I installed rubygems, but I don’t
have any rubygems installed [and have never used any before]

I’ve never used mini_magick, but I understand that it’s a wrapper around
ImageMagick’s mogrify command. There’s a Mac OS X binary for ImageMagick
here: http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php. It may be
as simple as installing the ImageMagick binary and then installing the
mini_magick gem.
