Example - Case 2: Integrating with a third-party image processing tool

In this example, the ImageMagick v.6.9.3-7 tool is invoked for further image processing.

Suppose that you’d like to compare the baseline image against the runtime image, but ignore the differences in their color.

A basic workflow is as follows:

  1. Capture the runtime image in the AUT, and then save it to a local path by using capture screen.
  2. Retrieve the total number of baseline images in a given picture check by using get baseline image count.
  3. Loop through the list of returned baseline image(s).
  4. Export the baseline images to a file with export baseline picture.
  5. Use ImageMagick CLI to preprocess and compare the baseline image(s) against the runtime image.
  6. Get the returned value from ImageMagick, and then check it against an expected value.
