It's been a while since I last updated this blog (September 2009 to be exact). Time flies! Anyway, here comes the actual content: updated imagick binaries for PHP 5.3 and PHP 5.4. The download package also includes ImageMagick 6.8.0 binaries compiled with VC9 (Visual Studio 2008). I noticed that the official ImageMagick builds are now Visual Studio 2010 and that wouldn't work well with PHP compiled with 2008.

I am not sure if I am violating any license in distributing ImageMagick binaries but if I do, please let me know and I will remove them. The binaries are just stock ImageMagick 6.8.0, which you can download from

In order to get things running you should add the ImageMagick DLL directory into PATH, add the imagick extension to php.ini and things should be running. At least hopefully.

The download link for the binaries is here: imagick-php54-php53.tgz.
