If I command convert --version it shows this.

bash: /usr/bin/convert: No such file or directory

All what I did was this

1. $ wget
2. $ tar xvzf ImageMagick.tar.gz
3. $ cd ImageMagick-6.8.2-10
4. $ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-bzlib=yes --with-fontconfig=yes --with-freetype=yes --with-gslib=yes --with-gvc=yes --with-jpeg=yes --with-jp2=yes --with-png=yes --with-tiff=yes
5. $ make
6. $ make install

/usr/local/bin is not in $PATH by default in CentOS. Either add it in or run yum install ImageMagick to install ImageMagick from the CentOS repos.

Thanks That's true but the problem is yum in my CentOS5.8 can install up to the version 6.2.8:( I'd like to install the latest version. – HUSTEN Feb 12 '13 at 5:05
That's why I presented it as only one of the options. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Feb 12 '13 at 5:05
what should I do? PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin/convert? or PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin? then export PATH? – HUSTEN Feb 12 '13 at 5:07
Neither. That's not where you installed it. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Feb 12 '13 at 5:09
/usr/local/bin/convert --version ?? You should be able to run it like this – mcalex Feb 12 '13 at 5:09

Don't go installing software from source unless strictly necessary. I believe ImageMagick is in CentOS, and GraphicsMagick (a fork from the above) is in EPEL
