in reply to converting Jpeg to grayscale

If you are willing to use other modules instead of GD you could also use Imager. It is easier to install than Image::Magick, and it is capable to do many image manipulation stuff as well.
It also has gif support, if you need that. It will ask if gif support should be enabled during the installation.
For setting the hue and saturation of the image do this:
my $color = Imager::Color->new(hue=>120, value=>1, saturation=>0.5);

    Maybe I'm just to dumb to understand the documentation, but this seems like it should work no?
    use Imager; my $pregray = Imager->new(); $pregray->copy($original); my $grey = $pregray->convert(preset=>'grey');
    Or am I passing in the original image wrong?

[stevieb]: I am thankful that I fell into Perl years ago in the manner I did. I don't believe there is another language that people care about so much, that they're willing to give everything. Langs come and go, but in Perl, it seems, things remain consistent.
[stevieb]: The people back then (~2000) are the same people now, but with much more experience. I'm appreciative that I fell into the Perl rabbit hole.
[stevieb]: Coding circles around Python devs, showing how unit tests should be done, enabling easy access to everything, learning basic C to wrap for direct hardware access... I am thankful.
[stevieb]: I'm in an appreciative mood. Thank you fellow Monks, for all I know, and for the knowledge which I can pass on
