I've been working on a theoretically simple web service to convert PSD or AI files to jpeg, png or some web-compatible format.
I was able to successfully use ImageMagic's
convert -flatten sample.ai sample-ai.jpg command, but consistently getting "invalid header" for various attempts using PhotoShop PSDs. I'm assuming ImageMagick prefers it's own or GIMP-saved PSD files, though perhaps I'm missing something there.
Also tried installing NConvert, but had problems with glibc version on client's CentOS 5.8, which I'm not permitted to change.
- that's on windows,
- they didn't really answer anything for GIMP,
- neither convert nor mogrify works for me
mogrify: Improper image header 'Test1.psd'.
So, does anyone know how to write a conversion script in Gimp via command line? I'm looking at this article trying to figure out the commands, but I think my trouble is I don't know ScriptFu worth anything.
It would also be tremendously helpful if I can echo back the dimensions of the original PSD, but I can get these from the resulting file fairly easily with a second step.
