SYNOPSIS

        package foo;
        use Meta::Image::Magick qw();
        my($image)=Meta::Image::Magick->new();
        my($thumbnail)=$object->thunb(50,50);

DESCRIPTION

Since I found there were a few methods I wanted that were missing from Image::Magick I inherited from it and extended it. This is the result. The original motivation was the creation of well scaled thumbnails.

FUNCTIONS

        Thumb($$$)
        TEST($)

FUNCTION DOCUMENTATION

Thumb($$$)

This method will create a thumbnail with x and y as the maximum x and y size. It will make the image the largest possible within that frame without distorting it. The image that will be returned may be smaller than x and y dimensions but only in a single dimension.

TEST($)

Test suite for this module.

SUPER CLASSES

Image::Magick(3)

BUGS

None.
