    I found that if you have a couple of options if your server already has ImageMagick enabled.

    1) See if your host will allow you to install Imagick in your user directory and load it manually (with a custom php.ini). Our Hosting company (WestHost) set everything up for use when I asked. This option will enable you to use this plugin.

    2) Use the command line instead of imagick php extension to run the ImageMagick. You might want to take a look at this guide. This option won’t allow you to use this plugin but at least you’ll get away from the GD library.

    It is easy to fix by adjusting ImageMagick Engines’s quality settings.

    There is a play between ImageMagick Engine’s quality settings in relation to the quality setting of my original jpeg. Especially since one of my resized images is the same px by px size.

    This forum touches on the idea:

    I ran some test and I can run up to 100 quality with my smaller outputs but need 80-85 for the largest output. But there isn’t a one size fits all with the settings. Everyone has different resize outputs and quality inputs. So, run some test before regenerating your whole library.

    My understanding:

    The command-line method should work if ImageMagick is installed and enabled on your host server.

    To use the other method you need ImageMagick AND Imagick installed and enabled on your host server.

    Contact your Hosting service and ask if ImageMagick is enabled.

    The plugin gives me every image size my theme has set in the functions.php. Can we set the medium_large size there?

    Mine are currently:

    /* Set & create additional image sizes */
    set_post_thumbnail_size( 150, 150, true ); // default square thumbnail
    add_image_size( ‘horizontal’, 184, 122, true ); // horizontal images
    add_image_size( ‘vertical’, 122, 184, true ); // vertical images
    add_image_size( ‘square’, 184, 184, true ); // vertical images
    add_image_size( ‘fromblog’, 184, 122, true ); // vertical images
    add_image_size( ‘portfolio-page’, 460, 300, true ); // vertical images
    add_image_size( ‘sell_media_item’, 460, 300 ); // entry images
    add_image_size( ‘yarpp-thumbnail’, 120, 80, true); // YARPP images

    /* Update thumbnail and image sizes */

    update_option( ‘thumbnail_size_w’, 184, true );
    update_option( ‘thumbnail_size_h’, 122, true );
    update_option( ‘medium_size_w’, 460, true );
    update_option( ‘medium_size_h’, ”, true );
    update_option( ‘large_size_w’, 960, true );
    update_option( ‘large_size_h’, ”, true );

    I check with my host (Westhost) and I am on a shared severer with ImageMagick enabled. However, Westhost does not use iMagick (third party extension). Instead they use ImageMagick’s MagickWand for the Extension. Maybe your plugin requires iMagick for the extension?

    I deactivated Force ImageMagick Plugin and installed ImageMagick Engine plugin. ImageMagick Engine plugin is old and not maintained.

    It gets around needing Imagick PHP Module by using ImageMagick command-line for the Image engine.

    As the developer of Force ImageMagick knows, “all of the regular sizes are correctly generated using ImageMagick via the “ImageMagick Engine” plugin. But the new responsive image size medium_large (not available to edit in wp-admin; added in WP 4.4) isn’t included.”

    Will “Force ImageMagick” plugin progress to include resizing by command-line?

    Anyway, I wish I knew what i was talking about. Maybe I have it all wrong. I wish this plugin worked for me.

    Why? What happens if it is missing? Thanks.

    Can you provide the code that modifies the.htaccess file to override user-agent blocking with PayPal address ranges ( IP ranges 66.211.. and 173.0.)?

    That would be helpful.

    Like you I am new to the plug in. So, I don’t have a precise answer. However, could you use a password protected collection to stop this? You would give the client a password to access the collection. I am not sure if you can password protect a gallery or not.
