# Project still alive? If so I could use a nudge in the right direction!

 richardmilne Mar 16, 2012 at 12:34 PM Hello all, first of all a big thank you to the creators of ImageMagickNET, it's exactly the tool I need for my project and was very pleased to find it on the imagemagick website. I wouldn't say I'm particularly experienced in C#.NET, but what I'm trying to create is a simple winforms application that watches a directory and performs imagemagick operations on any new jpg files that appear there, and writes to another directory. InputDir -> IM stuff happens -> OutputDir I've got as far as just about every example of ImageMagickNET code I can find on the internets, which basically resizes the images and writes them. This is a good start, but I need a much more complex operation! (I could after all just achieve this with GDI+). If I'm just using IM in the command line, the basic commands to achieve what I want are: convert InputImage.jpg -fuzz 12% -fill none -draw 'matte x,y replace' -fill none OutputImage1.png composite OutputImage1.png BackgroundImg.jpg -gravity south OutputImage2.jpg That's a very dumbed down approximation of what I'm doing, but suffice to say that convert and composite and a number of corresponding CLI options are essential to what I want to achieve. Here is my bit of C# code that is relevant here: private void fileSystemWatcher1_Created_1(object sender, FileSystemEventArgs e) { ImageMagickNET.MagickNet.InitializeMagick(); // FullPath is the new file's path. ImageMagickNET.Image img = new ImageMagickNET.Image(e.FullPath); ImageMagickNET.Geometry geo = new ImageMagickNET.Geometry("100x100>"); img.Resize(geo); img.Write(@"C:\\path\\to\\newFile.png"); }  What I'm struggling with is basically how to use convert and composite, and their operators! As I said before, I'm not what you'd call experienced in C#, or any other language really outside of PHP/(X)HTML. I'm just trying to put together a simple prototype application that I can show to a more experienced developer. Thanks A note to the board admin: The 'insert code snippet' function isn't working on Opera (ver 11.61) kiquenet Dec 30, 2012 at 2:04 PM Any solution about it?
