ImageMagick 6.0.0: Authors

John Cristy originally conceived of, authored, and still maintains the ImageMagick distribution.

We acknowledge the substantial contributions to the ImageMagick project by these gifted individuals (listed in alphabetical order):

Kelly Bergougnoux

     Authored the Cineon image coder (based on the existing DPX source).

Rod Bogart and John W. Peterson, University of Utah

     Image compositing is loosely based on rlecomp of the Utah Raster Toolkit.

Nathan Brown

     Original author of the JP2 coder.

Mike Chiarappa

     Created a Borland C++ Builder 6.0 build environment for ImageMagick.

Thomas R Crimmins

     Inventor of the eight hull algorithm used for speckle reduction.

Troy Edwards

     Authored the source RPM spec file for ImageMagick.

Jaroslav Fojtik

     Authored the CUT, ART, and MATLAB coder modules.

Francis J. Franklin

     Ported the WMF coder to the libwmf 0.2 API.

Markus Friedl

     Original author of Base64 encode/decode sources.

Bob Friesenhahn

     Author of Magick++ (C++ API to ImageMagick).  Author of module loader
     facility, automatic file identification (magic) support, Unix/Cygwin/MinGW
     configure/make facility, Windows setup.exe style installer, WMF renderer,
     C API documentation formatter, and the C, C++, and Perl test suites
     used by ImageMagick.

Michael Halle, Spatial Imaging Group at MIT

     Contributed the initial implementation of Alan Paeth's image rotation

David Harr

     Contributed (with Leonard Rosenthol) dash pattern, linecap stroking
     algorithm, and minor rendering improvements.

Christopher R. Hawks

     Authored the PALM coder.

Paul Heckbert, Carnegie Mellon University

     Image resizing is loosely based on Paul Heckbert's Zoom program.

Peder Langlo, Hewlett Packard

     Made hundreds of suggestions and bug reports. Without Peder, this software
     would not be nearly as useful as it is today.

Rick Mabry

     Contributed code to support filling drawn objects using a pattern image.

Catalin Mihaila

     Contributed a ZX-Spectrum SCREEN$ reader.

David Pensak, E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company

     For providing the computing environment that made developing ImageMagick

William Radcliffe

     Author of the VisualMagick project configure facility for Visual C++.
     Author of FlashPix module. Author of the EMF, XTRN, and META coders.
     Significant contributions to the MSL, JPEG, TIFF, SVG, and URL coders.
     Authored "process" module support. Wrote the micro-timer facility used by
     'identify'. Ported module loader support to Windows. Significantly
     improved polygon rendering performance.

Glenn Randers-Pehrson

     Contributed significantly to the utilities, including writing the 'gm'
     utility wrapper. Authored support for JNG, MNG, and PNG formats. Provided
     significant support for the BMP format. Significant improvements to the
     documentation, including creating a documentation authoring environment
     based on the <imdoc> format.

Paul Raveling, USC Information Sciences Institute

     The spatial subdivision color reduction algorithm is based on his Img

Leonard Rosenthol

     Authored the 'conjure' utility and associated MSL execution environment.
     Provided MacOS support. Authored the CLIPBOARD, XCF, and PSD coders.
     Postscript and PDF expertise. Significant drawing enhancements including
     support for dash patterns, linecap stroking, clipping masks and a mask

Kyle Shorter

     Original author of PerlMagick.  Author of the LOCALE coder.

Lars Ruben Skyum

     Contributed the -clippath functionality, improved color profile support,
     and re-wrote the PS3 coder.

Alvy Ray Smith and Eric Ray Lyons

     HWB color transform and algorithm.

Michael Still and IBM developer Works

     For the excellant article, "Graphics from the command line".  First
     published by IBM DeveloperWorks.

Anthony Thyssen

     Created and maintains a comprehensive set of examples of using ImageMagick
     (especially version 6 and above), which doubles as a command line
     validation suite.

Milan Votava

     Contributed support for Wireless BitMap, used in WAP - Wireless Access

Alexander Zimmermann

     Responsible for the ImageMagick Linux binary distributions for many years.
     His efforts are very much appreciated.
