=head1 NAME

Image::Magick::Square - Takes image and crops trims to a square shape


   use Image::Magick;
	use Image::Magick::Square;	

   # instance and read in image
	my $src = new Image::Magick;

   # square it
	my $square = Image::Magick::Square::create($src);

	# Save it 

   use Image::Magick;
   use Image::Magick::Square;

   my $i = new Image::Magick;

=head1 EXAMPLE

To make a square thumbnail:

	use Image::Magick::Square;
	# Load your source image
	my $src = new Image::Magick;

	# resize it down some..
	my ($thumb,$x,$y) = Image::Magick::Thumbnail::create($src,50);

	# crop to biggest square that will fit inside image.
	my ($square_thumb,$side) = Image::Magick::Square::create($thumb);

	# Save it 


The subroutine create() takes as argument an ImageMagick image object.

It returns an ImageMagick image object (the thumbnail), as well as the
number of pixels of the I<side> of the image.

It does not take dimension arguments, because if your image is cropped
according to the dimensions it already posseses.

This module is useful if you want to make square thumbnails. You should
first make the thumbnail, and then call create(), so as to use less of
the computer's resources. 

You can run this conversion on any image magick object. 

The subroutine is not exported.

A method is aliased onto Image::Magick::Trim2Square

=head1 SUBS

=head2 Image::Magick::Square::create()

Argument is Image::Magick object.
Trims top and bottom or sides as needed to make it into a square shape.
Returns object.

=head2 Trim2Square()

Is an alias for Image::Magick::Square::create(), it is placed inside the 
Image::Magick namespace. 



=head2 NOTES

Yes, L<Image::Magick::Thumbnail::Fixed> will make a fixed size thumbnail.
It's great, I love it. Except for one thing, it does not take an existing
Image::Magick object to work on. It does too much.  It doesn't return an
image object either.

Image::Magick::Square is more a specialized crop then a 
"thumbnail subroutine".
This way, you can add more effects, like a shadow, a border, annotate- etc, 
I<before> you save or display the image.


=head2 EXPORT

This basically adds a new method to Image::Magick.

   use Image::Magick;
   use Image::Magick::Square;
   my $i = new Image::Magick;

If you wish to avoid importing Trim2Square onto the Image::Magick namespace..

   use Image::Magick::Square();
