The montage program is a member of the ImageMagick(1) suite of tools. Use it to create a composite image by combining several separate images. The images are tiled on the composite image optionally adorned with a border, frame, image name, and more.

Image Sequence Operators:

-composite composite image

Image Stack Operators:
-clone indexes clone an image
-delete indexes delete the image from the image sequence
-duplicate count,indexes
duplicate an image one or more times
-insert index insert last image into the image sequence
-reverse reverse image sequence
-swap indexes swap two images in the image sequence

Miscellaneous Options:
-debug events display copious debugging information
-help print program options
-log format format of debugging information
-list type print a list of supported option arguments
-version print version information

In addition to those listed above, you can specify these standard X resources as command line options: -background, -bordercolor, -borderwidth, -font, -mattecolor, or -title.

By default, the image format of `file' is determined by its magic number. To specify a particular image format, precede the filename with an image format name and a colon (i.e. ps:image) or specify the image type as the filename suffix (i.e. image.ps). Specify 'file' as '-' for standard input or output.
