montage General Commands Manual montage


montage – create a composite image by combining several separate
images. The images are tiled on the composite image optionally adorned
with a border, frame, image name, and more.


montage input-file[s] [options] output-file

The montage program is a member of the ImageMagick(1) suite of tools.
Use it to create a composite image by combining several separate
images. The images are tiled on the composite image optionally adorned
with a border, frame, image name, and more.

By default, the image format of `file' is determined by its magic num‐ ber. To specify a particular image format, precede the filename with an image format name and a colon (i.e. ps:image) or specify the image type as the filename suffix (i.e. Specify 'file' as '-' for standard input or output.
