Skeptik Jump to Story

Skeptick is an all-purpose DSL for building and running ImageMagick commands. It helps you build any transformations, from trivial resizes to complex mask algorithms and free drawing.

However, with Skeptick you get quite a few advantages over using plain shell-out or other libraries.
