In this tutorial, I’ll demonstrate how to create vintage (just like Instagram does) photos with PHP and ImageMagick. Wait? What? Yes, you can do this very thing with PHP and ImageMagick, and that’s just scratching the surface!
Equalising an image is often useful, but can uglify photographs. When the contrast introduced by equalisation is limited, results are more pleasing. The process can be adapted across the image.
ImageMagick is a powerful tool for manipulating images that I use in photography and video. It is also complex, with a large repertoire of operations and settings, and I often forget how to produce a particular effect.
