Excerpt of article text...

In this article I want to show you some cool methods from the GMImageMBS class that is included in the MBS GraphicsMagick plugin. GraphicsMagick makes it easy for you to work with images. You can create images or edit already existing images. For example, you can use filters and effects on an already existing image or crop it.

I would like to give you a small insight with an example.

The GUI of the example consists roughly of a canvas and many buttons with individual functionalities behind them (see Figure 1).

At the start of the program we pass a picture of the MBS logo to the property pic.
