If you build Emacs with ImageMagick support, you can use the
ImageMagick library to load many image formats (see File Conveniences). The image type symbol
for images loaded via ImageMagick is
imagemagick, regardless of
the actual underlying image format.
This function returns a list of image file extensions supported by the current ImageMagick installation. Each list element is a symbol representing an internal ImageMagick name for an image type, such as
BMPfor .bmp images.
The value of this variable is a list of ImageMagick image types which Emacs may attempt to render using ImageMagick. Each list element should be one of the symbols in the list returned by
imagemagick-types, or an equivalent string. Alternatively, a value of
tenables ImageMagick for all possible image types. Regardless of the value of this variable,
imagemagick-types-inhibit(see below) takes precedence.
The value of this variable lists the ImageMagick image types which should never be rendered using ImageMagick, regardless of the value of
imagemagick-enabled-types. A value of
tdisables ImageMagick entirely.
Images loaded with ImageMagick support the following additional image descriptor properties:
nil, should be a string specifying a color, which is used as the image's background color if the image supports transparency. If the value is
nil, it defaults to the frame's background color.
:heightkeywords are used for scaling the image. If only one of them is specified, the other one will be calculated so as to preserve the aspect ratio. If both are specified, aspect ratio may not be preserved.
