    No Image-Magick packages there for anything more recent than perl-5.16.x.
    And I don't know of any other repo that has them.
    What's your perl -V output ? Do you want 8-bit pixels or 16-bit pixels ?

    If no-one knows of suitable Image::Magick ppm packages, I'd probably start with the appropriate dll download from http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php#windows.

    Update: I just grabbed http://www.imagemagick.org/download/binaries/ImageMagick-6.9.2-5-Q8-x64-dll.exe.
    The good news is that it contains a ppm package for x64 Strawberry Perl 5.20.
    The bad news is that, having installed that Image::Magick ppm package on my x64 Strawberry Perl 5.20.0, Magick.xs.dll won't bloody load.
    Maybe I've done something wrong ... or maybe not ...

    Cheers,

      Thank you for your answer.

      I've installed the package you mention and installed the ppd file found inside but I get this message:

      Error installing package 'd:\Image-Magick.ppd': Read a PPD for 'd:\Image-Magick.ppd', but it is not intended for this build of Perl (MSWin32-x64-multi-thread-5.22)

      My Perl is:

      This is perl 5, version 22, subversion 0 (v5.22.0) built for MSWin32-x64-multi-thread

      Thanks
        This is perl 5, version 22, subversion 0 (v5.22.0) built for MSWin32-x64-multi-thread

        Try:
        ppm install http://www.sisyphusion.tk/ppm/Image-Magick_.ppd

        That should work fine with the above version of Strawberry Perl (and perhaps ActivePerl, too).
        It requires that you have the 8-bit pixel (quantum depth = 8) build of ImageMagick installed and in your path.

        It would help me considerably if you let me know of any problems you have with that ppm.

        By the end of today I hope to accommodate QD=16 builds as well - and for other configurations of perl-5.22.x as well.
        Hopefully, they will ship with their own ImageMagick, and not require the user to install ImageMagick on his machine, but I need to investigate the feasibility of that first.

        Cheers,
        Rob
        For 5.22, I think you currently have to build Image::Magick yourself.
        You've already downloaded the ImageMagick files that you need for the job - you still need to follow the instructions given in the README that ships with the PerlMagick source.
        I'll try doing that myself tomorrow - and report back if my attempts are successful.

        Cheers,
        Rob
        Thats great, you have your answer
