imageinfo man page

imageinfo ‐ display selected image information


imageinfo [--help] [--version] [--format] [--fmtdscr] [--size] [--depth] [--geom] [--width] [--height] [--iccname] [--iccfile=file] [--iccmd5] [--md5hash] [--sha256hash] imagefile


imageinfo computes and displays selected image attributes. It is similar in function to the ImageMagick identify utility, but provides a few additional attributes (such as details of embedded ICC profiles), and allows command line selection of the attributes to be computed, avoiding unnecessary computation and and allowing easier parsing of results when this utility is called from a script.


imageinfo accepts the following options:

Display help message
Display imageinfo version

Display image format description
Display image size
Display bit depth
Display image geometry
Display image width
