If your imagick lib begins to say: "Non-conforming drawing primitive...", it could be that your locale are not correctly set. please locate all your setlocale and kill them temporary so you could check it that would solve the problem.

the ImagickDraw (v 2.2.0) seems to disharmonise with PHP-GTK2 (v 2.0.1).

The rendering of an ImagickDraw object on the current image fails (resp. results in a flat image without drawings), if is loaded.

Code to reproduce the failure:

(""); // comment this for a second try

$string = "Hello world!";

$im = new Imagick();
$draw = new ImagickDraw();

$draw->setFillColor(new ImagickPixel('blue'));


$metrix = $im->queryFontMetrics($draw, $string);


$im->newImage($metrix['textWidth'],$metrix['textHeight'], new ImagickPixel('white'));
$im->borderImage(new ImagickPixel('black'), 1, 1);
