How To Install ImageMagick on Fedora 35

Install ImageMagick on Fedora 35

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install ImageMagick on Fedora 35. For those of you who didn’t know, ImageMagick is a free open source simple software suite for any kind of image manipulation that is used for editing, transforming, and converting .png, .jpg, .gif, and other types of images. ImageMagick is also available across all major platforms, including Android, BSD, Linux, Windows, Mac OSX, iOS, and many others.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the ImageMagick open-source image manipulation on a Fedora 35.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 35.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • A non-root sudo useror access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install ImageMagick on Fedora 35

Step 1. Before proceeding, update your Fedora operating system to make sure all existing packages are up to date. Use this command to update the server packages:

sudo dnf upgrade
sudo dnf update
sudo install php-pear php-devel gcc

Step 2. Installing ImageMagick on Fedora 35.

By default, ImageMagick is available on Fedora 35 base repository. Now run the following command to install ImageMagick to your Fedora system:

sudo dnf install ImageMagick ImageMagick-perl

Alternatively, you can also install the development branch of ImageMagick if you require it:

sudo dnf install ImageMagick-devel

Verify that ImageMagick has been installed on your system:

convert --version

Table of commands and tools that can be used with ImageMagick:

animateDisplay an image sequence as an animation.
compareAnalyze two images, and visualize mathematical differences between them.
compositeCompose one image over another with variable transparency to create a composite image.
conjureInterpret and execute scripts written in MSL, the Magick Scripting Language.
convertConvert images from one file format to another. This tool can also blur, crop, despeckle, dither, and otherwise modify the content of an image.

identifyDisplay the image dimensions, quality, and other image metadata.
importCapture the screen to an image file.
mogrifyModify an image. Similar to converting, but overwrites the original image.
montageCreate an image composed of smaller images. This command can create a single image containing thumbnails of many images.
streamProcess image data and store it in a file as it is being streamed from an input source. Useful for situations with slow data streams or huge images whose data processing should begin before the entire image is stored.

For example, use the convert logo command as follows:

convert logo: logo.gif
