Image Sorcery allows you to leverage all three of ImageMagick's command line tools, [mogrify](http://www.imagemagick.org/script/mogrify.php), [convert](http://www.imagemagick.org/script/convert.php), and [identify](http://www.imagemagick.org/script/identify.php), for maximum magickal power and minimum memory consumption!
+## Why?
+
+Several other ImageMagick libraries exist for Ruby, but most have at least one of two issues:
+
+* Large memory consumption/leaking
+* Doesn't expose the entire ImageMagick library
+
+Due to the way Image Sorcery was written, it manages to avoid both of these issues.

## Installation
gem install image_sorcery
