Installing latest ImageMagick on Centos 6.3

When I needed ImageMagick on Centos the default installer came with a version some 400 verison back.

Installing the latest version was a bit wiry so here it goes:


wget “”

yum install bzip2-devel freetype-devel libjpeg-devel libpng-devel libtiff-devel giflib-devel zlib-devel ghostscript-devel djvulibre-devel libwmf-devel jasper-devel libtool-ltdl-devel libX11-devel libXext-devel libXt-devel lcms-devel libxml2-devel librsvg2-devel OpenEXR-devel

yum install fftw-3.2.1-3.1.el6

download libltdl3-1.4.3-9sls.i586.rpm

wget “”

install it :

yum install libltdl3-1.4.3-9sls.i586.rpm


yum install ImageMagick-6.8.6-9.i386.rpm
