I try to convert images to thumbnails with imagemagick. All works fine, so I will get a thumbnail. But I get some errors on my console:

convert: unable to open image `module':  @ error/blob.c/OpenBlob/2489.
convert: unable to open image `*':  @ error/blob.c/OpenBlob/2489.

All permissions are set correctly. I can't found any error like this at google or somewhere else. I hope someone have an idea:) Thanks for your help.

You'll need to give the command you're using.

The chances are, you've put a * within a ', so your command you should be:

convert -opts ... *

And not

convert -opts ... '*'

Hi thanks for your help. My Command look so:/usr/bin/convert module -quality 100 -antialias -geometry 220x220 -profile '*' -unsharp 0.5x1 "./../images/full/76/d042dab2.jpg" "./../images/thumbnails/76/d042dab2.jpg" –  user1083404 Oct 12 '12 at 13:06
    
What is -profile '*' supposed to do? That's what is causing your problem. –  Jay Oct 12 '12 at 13:09
