Topic: MiniMagick VS RMagick

Hi,

I have recently converted from RMagick to MiniMagick because people had told me that it would give me a boost in speed and performance, especially with sites on a shared host. But now it turns out that speed hasn't increased that much (if at all) and that my app still gets killed when trying to upload larger image files (100KB and over).

Has anybody ever gained any benefits from MiniMagick vis-a-vis RMagick... ?

I still wonder if there's ANY decent way of uploading and resizing images when on a shared host...

Re: MiniMagick VS RMagick

I havent given it a spin yet, but ImageScience gets more recommendations for shared hosts, precisely for the speed/memory issues.
