sips vs. imagemagick
Authored by: efc on Jan 03, '06 10:04:46PM
I've used both sips and imagemagick on a PowerMac G5. In addition to the undocumented feature mentioned in this hint, it is worth noting that in my work I've found sips to be at least 5 times faster than imagemagick. I don't know for sure, but my guess is that sips is using the Velocity engine in a way imagemagick (or at least the binary I had of it) does not.

True, imagemagick has more features than sips. But if sips can do the job and you have a lot of bulk work to get done, it can save a load of time.
