mogrify -draw text stopped working after upgrade

If anyone can recommend a more appropriate newsgroup for this question?

We recently upgraded from php 4.1.2 to php 4.3.9 and ImageMagick 5.5.7
to version 6.2.5.
I have a script that creates a random number image as a Turing Test,
and without changing that, it's stopped working right after the
But, only part of the mogrify command.

Here's the line I'm using:

$imagick = '/usr/local/bin/mogrify -pointsize 26 -draw \'text
'.$txRand.','.$ tyRand.' "'.$rand.'" \' -rotate '.$rRand.' -swirl
'.$sRand.' -charcoal 2 /var/www/html/verimgs/'.$mrand.'.gif' ;

exec("$imagick" );

PHP is executing the command OK, because it creates the image and does
the swirl and charcoal and the rotate, but it's not doing the -draw

If I echo $imagick it's perfectly formatted:

/usr/local/bin/mogrify -pointsize 26 -draw 'text 17,23 "659"' -rotate 2
-swirl 25 -charcoal 2 /var/www/html/home/verimgs/97531.gif

I can run that line in a command shell and it will perform perfectly.

According to the ImageMagick site:


I'm formatting the -draw switch just right.
But still, it won't print the numbers onto the image.

I don't get it. What may have changed in the upgrade to prevent this
script from working the way it did before?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi all, I've been testing out some configs on this box out of curiousity more than anything, but looking at various sites and of course, php.net regarding safe_mode_exec_dir, it appears that if I specify a directory here, that binaries within should execute even with safe_mode enabled. I copied ImageMagick's mogrify binary to /safeweb/bin and included:

Sorry to crosspost, but I have no idea if this is more a PHP question of general Linux question. I have a script that makes changes to image files, montages them into a jpg, and creates a Web page with that image. It starts with someone from our graphics dept. who I set up to copy the image files over to the Linux server with SAMBA. The files gain the owner/group of "nobody" and permissions of 744.

Can anyone give me some simple function for resizing images and thumbnail creation with image magick (I can't install GD2 on my Mac (OSX v.10.3.5))? I have functional upload function (well, not function, but part of script...) and now I need to create thumbnails. but how? I think I will use this set of lines: $smal = "150";

I have found a script online that I want to use (I am new to PHP). It creates dynamic images based on the text that you pass it. However, no matter how I try, I can't get anything other than a blank white image. Can one of you knowledgeable people please have a look at the code below and help please.
