I’m being introduced to the world of code — and loving it.
ImageMagick can be used to produce / manipulate images & generate text.
Once installed, & with a few images generated, the power of computing feels more transparent thanks to ImageMagick.
There is something satisfying about typing a command into a computer and then almost instantly seeing it done. It is a feeling of power. Knowing it will do what you want it to.
All depends on what you ask.
And it is so different to photoshop, which is nice and very powerful too, but all the work is done for you.
With the code, you don’t use your mouse and it feels more brutal, more agile, more old school.
This website is helpful. I only came it across it for the ImageMagick stuff but the other things that are being discussed look very useful indeed.
