This module provides ImageMagick integration.


  • Install this module using the official Backdrop CMS instructions at

  • Go to Administration > Configuration > Media > Image toolkit
    (admin/config/media/image-toolkit) and change the image toolkit to ImageMagick.

  • If the convert binary cannot be found in the default shell path, you need to
    enter the full path to ImageMagick's convert executable, including the
    filename itself.


  • ImageMagick ( needs to be installed on your server
    and the convert binary needs to be accessible and executable from PHP.

  • The PHP configuration must allow invocation of proc_open() (which is
    security-wise identical to exec()).

Consult your server administrator or hosting provider if you are unsure about
these requirements.
