Yes , I installed the free version, it seems to work quite nicely on
gifs , the conversion is easier than with netpbm ( I had to strip the
color 'none' first with a perl script. Maybe IM will handle it) And I
don't have to search for the correct combos of filters to do the
conversion. One program for all. Plus a library. Plus the perl interface
to the library is already written. If I ever have time, I'll make the
move in my code.
Re: perl-tk I'll have to check out the ppm's again, I can't even
remember what error it gave me.
