MagickWand API is the recommended interface between the ImageMagick image processing libraries and the C programming language.

Unlike the MagickCore C API, MagickWand uses only a few opaque types. Accessors are available to set or get important wand attributes. A description of the MagickWand public methods are found here:

Set or Get Magick Wand Attributes
Magick Wand Image Methods

Image Vector Drawing

After you write your MagickWand program, compile it like this:

cc `Wand-config --cflags --cppflags` wand.c `Wand-config --ldflags --libs`

Here is a example program that utilizes the MagickWand API to get you started, wand.c. It reads a GIF image, creates a thumbnail, and writes it to disk in the PNG image format.
