    We've been using GraphicsMagick for a while in our project, but recently we had to switch to ImageMagick because we required DDS (Microsoft DirectDraw surface) support.

    So ImageMagick supports it, but GraphicsMagick doesn't. However, I would prefer to switch to GraphicsMagick again if it would support DDS.

    Can it be done? Pretty please with sugar on top?

     
  • DDS support was contributed to ImageMagick by someone named Bianca van Schaik who is a game developer from the Netherlands.  Since implementing DDS looks like a lot of work, it would be useful if interested parties would contact Bianca to see if the original contribution can be contributed to GraphicsMagick under GraphicsMagick's X11-style license.  Otherwise we would need a volunteer with the time and energy to develop this as an independent work.
