I'v been doing some testing and I just have to ask why are we limited to imagick? It's slow and horrible, like a painful death for a cpu. Same server doing vbulletin/imagemagick tests converts gifs in seconds, xenforo/ imagick extension I'm looking at my watch. In the words of our sys admin "Why are you using that crap?". It's configured fine, It's just not good enough. I run a huge board, we use animated gifs heavily, so I consider this a big deal rather than small request as the membership complaints rack up. Can you add a third option for a basic /usr/local/bin/convert, please.
