Re: Who's using ImageMagick on the server?

Last decade I switched from PIL to GD to ImageMagick because of image quality, in spite of their inferior APIs and code quality. A few clients/employers thought PIL in particular looked worse than other sites; I did some comparisons and they were absolutely right.

And, PIL and GD have not seen much improvement (or security patching?) since then. Although I just noticed there's a fork of PIL called Pillow.. anyone using that?
