Assume you installed Imagemagick by
brew install imagemagick
but it does not get into your PATH. For example, I run unsuccessfully
since imagemagick is not in PATH:
-bash: compare: command not found.
ls -l /usr/local/bin/compare gives
ls: /usr/local/bin/compare: No such file or directory
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then source ~/.bashrc fi # http://apple.stackexchange.com/a/53058/15504 export PATH=/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH
which seems to be ok because
ImageMagick in my system - answers to 4ae1e1's answer
brew --prefix gives
/usr/local so ok.
brew info imagemagick gives

which seems to be ok.
I run the command
brew link imagemagick and get
Linking /usr/local/Cellar/imagemagick/6.9.0-3... Error: Could not symlink bin/convert Target /usr/local/bin/convert already exists. You may want to remove it: rm '/usr/local/bin/convert' To force the link and overwrite all conflicting files: brew link --overwrite imagemagick To list all files that would be deleted: brew link --overwrite --dry-run imagemagick
This seems to be strange. How can you solve this problem?
I run the command
brew reinstall imagemagick and get

so something wrong in symlinking.
How can you solve the error about symlink?
