I am doing some picture composition with imagick in PHP. I translate the image before I do the composition. Depending on the amount of translation, I can get the image or the script fails. If I translate +1000 in the horizontal direction I get a valid image. If I translate -1000 units, the script fails and I get a zero size result.

I am using Imagick 2.1.1, Ubuntu 7.10, PHP Version 5.2.3, Apache 2.2.4, ImageMagick 6.2.4.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

As to why I want to translate by -1000, I am doing some map alignment affine transforms and they can be quite complex - this is just a test case.



Reproduce code:

	//Create a blank blue image
	$image = new Imagick();
	$col = new ImagickPixel();
	$col->setColor  ("blue");
	$image->newImage( 640, 480, $col );
	$image->setImageFormat( 'png' );
	//Create a small green image
	$col->setColor  ("green");
	$image2 = new Imagick();
	$image2->newImage( 100, 100, $col );
	$image2->setImageFormat( 'png' );
	//Composit green image onto blue image
	$ImagickDraw = new ImagickDraw();
	$ImagickDraw->translate(-1000.0,0.0); //Translation step
	$image->drawImage( $ImagickDraw );

	//Output image
	header( "Content-Type: image/{$image->getImageFormat()}" );
	echo $image->getImageBlob( );

Expected result:
Ideally the code example would return a valid image. Any composite that has been translated outside the image bounds should not be displayed.

Or if that is not possible, I would expect Imagick to throw an exception if there was a problem rather than just silently failing.

Actual result:
Script appears to stop running when I call ImageickDraw::drawImage(...). A zero size file is returned to the browser.

I am testing with ImageMagick 6.3.9 and the latest Imagick. Seems like the image is returned correctly. This migth be a bug in earlier ImageMagick versions.

I have bitten the bullet and installed 6.3.9 from source. This fixed the problem, thanks!  

Looks like the repo for hardy heron 8.04 beta is still using the broken version 6.2.4. It would have been nice for an exception to be thrown if imagemagick returns invalid data to Imagick but I suppose that is a separate issue.
