If you're not able to select ImageMagick PECL Extension, contact your web host and ask them to install it.

This add-on requires a restricted Maximum Attachment Image Dimensions setting. You cannot use 0 or blank as an option. I suggest using 1600 x 1600.

Q: Some hot linked image are not converted, why is this?Sending a donation:
A: If a hot linked image is corrupt and internal information about width and height are not able to be read, those images are not converted and will require manual conversion.
Q: Why isn't GD supported?
A: GD does a terrible job of creating large images.
Q: Can files in the /tmp/ directory be deleted?
Q: Are attachments reused, meaning if the same attachment is located in several posts does each one use up disk space?
A: Each attachment is saved separately, however this is not a problem these days as disk space is so inexpensive.
