    There is PerlMagic which is very versatile and handles all known image formats:

    If you need a small input-output routine you can use PPM image format. Simple I/O routines for this one are in my! script.

    Also, I recommend the O'Reilly book:

    "Programming web graphics with Perl & GNU Software"

    I've read it but, unfortunately, haven't had time to play with it. The functionality though seems great. You can easily use imagemagick to manipulate images, and Perl::magick (or whatever it's called) is a simple object oriented interface for ImageMagick.

    Anybody actually had a play with it?
