Puppet module to help manage GraphicsMagick on your systems.

Module Description

GraphicsMagick is the swiss army knife of image processing. Comprised of 265K physical lines (according to David A. Wheeler's SLOCCount) of source code in the base package (or 1,220K including 3rd party libraries) it provides a robust and efficient collection of tools and libraries which support reading, writing, and manipulating an image in over 88 major formats including important formats like DPX, GIF, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PNG, PDF, PNM, and TIFF.

This module installs and configures GraphicsMagick on your systems.
