Glenn Randers-Pehrson

Contributed significantly to the utilities, including writing the 'gm' utility wrapper. Authored support for JNG, MNG, and PNG formats. Provided significant support for the BMP format. Significant improvements to the documentation, including creating a documentation authoring environment based on the <imdoc> format. Maintained the SourceForge mailing lists. GraphicsMagick would not be what it is today without Glenn and he will always be remembered.

Gregory J Wolfe

Sara Shafaei

Contributed a number of Wand API functions as well as fixes for several composition operators.

Brendan Lane

Contributed a large number of new Photoshop composition operators and alpha-channel fixes for existing ones.

Dirk Lemstra

Contributed improvements to the VisualMagick configure program to support configuring more build options via the GUI dialogs and to deal with similarly named files.

Significant contributions to the MSL, JPEG, TIFF, SVG, and URL coders. Authored "process" module support. Wrote the micro-timer facility used by 'identify'. Ported module loader support to Windows. Significantly improved polygon rendering performance.

Leonard Rosenthol

Authored the 'conjure' utility and associated MSL execution environment. Provided MacOS support. Authored the CLIPBOARD, XCF, and PSD coders. Postscript and PDF expertise. Significant drawing enhancements including support for dash patterns, linecap stroking, clipping masks and a mask image.

Lars Ruben Skyum

Contributed the -clippath functionality, added -define support, improved color profile support, and re-wrote the PS3 coder.

Rolf Schroedter

Principal author of TclMagick.

David N. Welton

Co-author of TclMagick, particularly in the Unix environment.

Mark Mitchell

Contributed a new design for the web pages, including the formatting scripts, and converted many pages to the new format.

Clément Follet

Contributed Hald CLUT and ASC-CDL implementations.

John Sergeant

Re-wrote the HP PCL writer to work much better, including support for compression. Implemented support for CALS type 1 format. Re-wrote the DICOM reader.

Roberto de Deus Barbosa Murta

Contributed the adaptive threshold implementation (-lat), which executes in linear rather than quadratic time.

Samuel Thibault

Contributed support for the Braille image format.
