Hello I am trying to use homebrew to install Imagemagick and I use the following command:

brew install imagemagick

The installation finishes with no error and I do get the folder: /usr/local/Cellar/imagemagick/. But the command is not added to my terminal environment and I cannot find the commandline tools binaries. I have the bin folder in the Cellar folder for imagemagick but not the convert and so on binaries. Am I missing something?

I am running the newest update of macOS Catalina if that is relevant.

  • Take a look here and see if this helps. Also, have you reviewed the support and community questions on the Homebrew site?

    And the installation should work the first time, too, but you never know....I get that it's an older question but there's several answers provided there. In addition, the Homebrew site probably sees this kind of issue more often than we do so that's your first choice for support issues.

  • It’s important to reference the documentation: imagemagick.org/script/command-line-tools.php

There is no imagemagick command. /usr/local/Cellar/imagemagick/ is the Homebrew folder containing the content of the package. To see the names of the installed commands run

$ ls /usr/local/Cellar/imagemagick/*/bin
Magick++-config     compare         display         magick-script
MagickCore-config   composite       identify        mogrify
MagickWand-config   conjure         import          montage
animate             convert         magick          stream
