Problem with imagemagick when using display to show images in .eps or tiff formats


Hello All,

I have an image in .eps format that i am using the command display to show, but it is not working. The image is shown but the background color is dark and not white. When i use display for the converted image to jpg it opens it on a white background. For png image the background is also not white, same for the tiff image. But when i use command gv foo.eps, the image is opening on a white background. I am not sure why this is happening? Is there something wrong with my imagemagick?

In case you want to have a look at the file it is attached. The version of linux i am using is openSUSE 12.1

Thanks!
Jimmy

It could be because the image has layers.

Try

Code:
display -flatten -background white foo.eps

Hello leehanken,

And thanks for your suggestion. It worked. Is there a way this can be permanently fixed? So i can avoid using the options in your suggestion?

Thanks!

Jimmy

Hi Jimmy

You could enter into the command line:

Code:
alias display='display -flatten -background white'
To make it permanent you could put this line in your shell's startup script

Typically in a file called .bashrc in your home directory

Regards Lee
